3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz / 650 ml bottle bottle purchased at One Stop Market. Aroma shows me mild roast, light chocolate and weak cherry syrup.
Upfront of the flavor of cherry syrup followed by weak chocolate and roast. Maybe I need to take a palate reset week because damn near every brew I have had lately seems like it has a very thin body, like this brew. Do I have palate fatigue??? Again, thin body. Oh wait this is a Harpoon beer, so the body should be thin. Positive aspect the ABV is hidden and it still tastes good.

Bottle gift from SJ. I really liked this brew. There was a lot going on. Notes of dark fruit like raisins and plums, roasted malts, brown sugar, bread and roasted malts. The finish was cherry and roasty. All these ingredients were masterfully blended. Well done!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a dark reddish brown. almost no head. Nose is a brown sugar malt, cocoa, some sweet birch syrup and faint tree fruit. It’s a decent nose. Sweet finish, up front is a woody sweet malty body with a faint cherry and almonds. not great but interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a half finger, beige, foamy head that receded rather quickly. It doesn't look as thick as I expected. Color is brown with mahogany tones. No lacing. A nose full of roasted malts, highlights of cherry juice sweetness, hints of cocoa nibs and strawberry Twizzlers. Medium bodied with tight medium carbonation. A hearty base of roasted malts and coffee flavors in the taste followed by sweet notes of cherry juice, hints of alcohol and chocolate, finishing with Twizzlers type sweetness and some leafy hops in the finish. Overall it's less sweet than I expected. Pretty solid.
