3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at beer authority. Pours clear pinkish red, no head. Aroma is cherry, yeast esters (of the bubblegum variety), burps up cherry cough syrup. Alcohol burn is prominent in the end. Dry finish, syrupy texture, lively carbonation on the tongue. Overall - doesn't really work for me, but thanks to Burc for swapping out my half-finished hottenroth even though I didn't ask for it - well-appreciated!

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with not much head retention. Somewhat dry red wine, grape, light plum, strawberry, cherry, pretty straight forward aroma. Quite dry, light leather, tannic, dry oaky, dull cherry flavor that dries out a ton on the vinous finish. A fair amount of booze on the finish. Again, not a big fan of the Brainless series.
