3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours reddish brown with a missing head.. The aroma has tart cherry and plenty of coffee presence. The taste is tart cherry, lemon, grape and has a coffee stout finish. I’m a bigger fan than others so far.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Neat idea but not a tasty style. Aroma is delicious coffee that somebody decided to pour vinegar into. Pours black with not much head or film. Taste follows suit: oak, wine, and roasty coffee with a distracting vinegar finish. Just isn’t doing it for me. Needed something roastier or spicier to tie it together.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft a Moriartys. Black pour with no head at all. Well ... it?s bizarre. I can still taste the Flemish Red base but cold coffee is definitely the dominant flavor. Sour raisin pie. Charcoal grill. Nice roasted notes. Not for everyone, but good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
draft at Bullfrog. pretty strange combo. Flanders red/oud bruin with coffee. Initial flavors were tart, dark fruits, sour which ends abruptly with a huge wave of coffee. wierd but interesting
