UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 Hunahpu 2013! Cloudy dark brown. Aroma of almonds and cherry pits hits of chocolate. Nutty boozy malty taste. Full body. I like the style but too nutty.

On draft at Cigar City pours aa black color, aromas of almonds, caramel, light chocolate, and some feint cherries. Flavors are the same, the cherries and almond flavor was very balanced, glad this beer was put back on, I enjoyed this beer.

Chocolate almond cherry scotch ale Dark brown almost black with no head. Aroma of almonds, cherries and caramel malts. Taste follows, chocolate almonds and an afterthought of cherries. Sweet yet balanced, really nice treatment! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Cigar City. Pours the typical Big Sound dark caramel brown with an off-white head. Nose is sweet malts, some almond extract, big cherry, and some light Hershey’s syrup. Flavor is similar with the flavors melding together pretty well. Nice selection of complimentary flavors here. Medium in body and some lingering chocolate almond in the finish. Nice treatment, Jason!
