JohnnyJ (4553) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Cask at Churchkey. Pours a dark brown, almost no head. Deep dark red sweet cherry, candied cherry, strong sarsaparilla, and sweet chocolatey malt. Medium body. I like the blueberry better personally.

Cask at Churchkey. Poured a dark brown color with a small brown/dark-tan head. Aroma was some herbal notes, cherries and some light coffee. Flavor had some light cherries, chocolate. Relatively clean, light and enjoyable.

nimbleprop (5212) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On cask at Churchkey. Pours a watery, opaque black with some very spitty off white head. HUGE sarsaparilla nose, almost like you peeled the root and put it up your nose, rootbeer, vanilla, malty, cake icing. Flavor is more balanced, sweet, caramel, rootbeer, lightly astringent, vanilla, licorice, tarragon. Full bodied, herbal, spicy finish. A really awesome treatment since the sarsaparilla is the star with the PQP always there as a backbone.

Travlr (13434) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Cask. Very dark maroon color, small tan head. Aroma of brandied cherries, subtle molasses. Taste is cream soda, vanilla, earthy cocoa. Not bad.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Cask at CK. Pours a clear, deep sepia red. Near black. Lower beige foam. Spotty lacing. Nose is cherry root beer, intense maraschino sweet cherries,, some oddities, diacetyl perhaps? Taste is coffee, roast, diacetyl. Some lemon acid, small oil on palate. Like the normal version better.
