3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap sample at Fort George. Colour... black with a fairly thick head (for a sample size). Nose... chocolate covered cherry cordials! Palate... nicely dry, a la an Irish stout, yet rather coating and well backed by its flavours of vanilla, cherry and raspberry, all of which work together very well!

Tap @ PFBF... Poured black with a tan head. Lots of roast, bitter tones with a nice with mild cherry flavors. Cherry skins, charred wood, oats, and brown sugars. Light yeast esters in the finish. Not as medicinal as it could be.
