2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep amber-red with a thinnish head. Rich and chewy texture; moderate carbonation. Big sweetness, with notes of chocolate, caramel, toffee, nuts, Boston baked beans and Sugar Babies. Had a little sourness (cherries) and some bitterness (flowers), too. Nice flavors but the aromas seemed a little obscured. Sweetness was a little heavy for my buds.

Ok, but kinda hard to genuinely enjoy...bubble gummy with a grainy aftertaste. Ah well.
