Has a dark reddish color with very little carbonation and a roasted smell. Taste is smooth roasted malt and finishes with little bitterness, but is a bit too thin for me. Overall it is a good brew, but I prefer heavier dark beers.

22 oz bottle; purchase by September. Clear burgundy brown with a beige coating. Nose is woody grape, mild dark roast and fudge. Medium body with a sharp, sour tang. Taste is crabapple, cider vinegar and mold with hints of cherry. Dusty dry finish with tobacco and ash. I donít think this is supposed to be a sour ale but as such itís not horrible. The aftertaste gets funky after a while. One glass is enough.

Smells better than it looks. Brown beers are generally one of my favorite styles, but this one is weak and thin. Bitter - no hint of caramel like the description promised.

22 oz bottle from the brewery. Pours a mostly translucent brown with a bunch of amber notes and a small to medium creamy and bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of caramel, nuts, very light buttery notes and some chocolate. Flavor of...interestly enough...sour cherries. While I think there may be something a litlte off here...the sour cherry flavor which I assume the brewer was not going for actually worked out ok. Under that initial sour cherry flavor I got some nuts, light caramel and grainy malts. This one is hard to put numbers to...but Iím gonna have to keep style in mind on this one because I think an infection set in and the brewery most likely did not intend for it to turn out this way.

On tap at the Barrington Brewery. Nice dark brown, so dark itís almost black, color. Kind of bitter, but otherwise no real perceptable taste. Very watery!
