Cherry, almonds, and earth aroma. Dark red/pink color almost artificial?.. Taste is cherry all the way. Sour, sweet, almost a fruit wine. I do like it, I can see most people not though.

I really liked this. Pours a deep crimson . aromas are over ripe cherries and almond. Flavors follow suit. Sweet cherries with a slightly bitter finish. Donít understand the low score

Mainuh_man (67) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours deep red with a frothy, light red head. Aromas of cherry, cough drop, and bubblegum. Very sweet up front, with flavors of cherry and raspberry. Mid-flavors bring out more of the sour as well as alcohol, so it begins to be more reminiscent of cough syrup. Finish is decently sour and balances the sweetness, with warm alcohol left in the chest and throat. Medium to full bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and mild, but sharp carbonation. Overall, a sweet/sour beer that is the most like cough syrup of any beer Iíve had. A decent enough desert beer, but others are better.

PorterPounder (5369) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Pours a deep dark red with a thick and long lasting pinkish khaki colored head. Aroma is surprisingly neutral with just a hint of cherries, but pretty bland and more akin to a pencil eraser. Flavor is pretty solid with some nice cherry sourness, some burnt accents, some red licorice sugary sweetness. Nice carbonation in the mouthfeel. Looking at the ratings, I wasnít supposed to like this, Oh well!
