Cask at GBBF. Did I just order a cherry cola? It’s cola black with a small off-white head. Smells like cherry cola, with some sweet bbq sauce as well. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is … more cherry cola, smooth malts, no real bitterness. I only shared a third of this so not sure what the drinkability is like, but I liked what I had.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Very dark reddish brown, almost black. Lots of yeast sediment. Large light tan head, big bubbles. Aromas of roast, dark chocolate. Not picking up cherry in the aroma, but its strong in the taste. Sweet with a bitter aftertaste. Aftertaste lingers and leaves the mouth feeling very dry and claggy.Drinkable, but distinctly average.

Thank you Meghan for bringing back a bottle from your overseas trip.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-dark red color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and then leaving a decent amount of speckled lacing.
The smell had a super sweet cherry in front of some dried dark chocolate.
The taste took the sweet cherry and dark chocolate to combine and added a slight tart element to it.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about it. There was a mild soft carbonation about it to allow a smooth texture about it.
Overall, good mild ale that I could down again, nothing over the top.

That ugly aftertaste. Pass.
