shared a bottle with a friend who received it as a gift from a brew master. aroma is nothing but sweet cherries, so much cherry it could be a car air freshener. taste follows suit, dark cherries, sugar, and caramel to finish. very sweet with a medium body. a decent fruit beer, bad ass torpedo bottle though.

LOL, this actually does look like something off a futiristic Klingon battlefield. Dark amberish red coloring, with a fizzy artifical fruit nose. Palate is sweet and fruity, with some powdered chocolate cocoa dustiness. Not bad, but could have been a lot better than it was.

Came in a bottle that looked like belonged on a battlefield. The color was a nice deep red, smelled and tasted like Cherry. Nothing more, nothing less. It did mix well with the chocolate that they put out as well.

Artillery Shell Bottle. Pours a dark red in color with a small fizzy head. The aroma is sweet cherrys with very little else. The flavor is dominated by sweet artificial cherry. The finish is cloying and sweet. Not bad, but there is a lot that could be better.

24 fl oz bottle pour. Pours dark red with creamy off-white head. Head completely diminishes. It’s clear, but not sparkling. Looks flat. Aroma of malt and slight cherry. Flavor very sweet up front with tons of carbonation and acidity then a burst of tart in the middle and finishes slightly bitter. Flat and light mouthfeel.

Noogfest ’08. The body was medium copper colored. The aroma was cherry cough syrup and a little bit of caramel. The taste was more cherry cough syrup and pancakes. This is about the worst cherry themed beer I have tried.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2008
A dark reddish appearance with a white head. The aroma is cherry flavored cough syrup. The flavor is like a true fruit lambic. Um NOT! A very medicine like flavor with cherry syrup and a hint of molasses. Bottom line this is like Robitussin not beer. Worse than SA Cherry Wheat. Avoid!!!!

ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, cherry-esque body with a thin, wispy, white head. Smell: Sweetish cherries, though a touch medicinal, with a background of grainy, pale maltiness. Taste: Sweet dark cherries, like either sparkling cherry juice or, perhaps, a cherry-flavored soda. Some faroff hints of candied caramel malts. No hop flavors or real bitterness present. Again, it’s a bit medicinal, primarily on the finish, like they added a few drops of Robitussin in for good measure. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Fine, though it’d be a good bit better sans medicine. Nice bottle presention I must say, though not one you’d want to accidentally sit on.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Clear reddish amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Sweet maraschino cherry and light caramel aroma. Fairly sweet maraschino cherry flavor, some graininess and a bit of caramel. Medium light body with moderate carbonation and a very sweet almost syrupy finish.
