3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruddy brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. aroma of dark fruit, bready yeast, sharp fruity esters, sweet chocolate, toast and floral coffee. Flavor is sweet malt, brown sugar, sweet, dark fruit, hot booziness, clove and bready yeast. Medium to heavy body with an oily to boozy, dry feel and moderate, but quit sharp carbonation. Decent overall, but lacking complexity for a quad, and with an increasing astringent booziness as it warms.

Poured a lighter brown with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, booze and earthy hops. Flavor similar, too sweet, too bitter, too boozy.

Listed as Barrel Aged, but I suspect this is the proper rating. Anyway, on tap at the 2015 Holiday Ale Fest. A cloudy brown red color with a large white head. A big malty berry nose. The flavor is cherries, yeasty, vanilla, some heat and vanilla. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Oh my gosh cherries. Tart beautiful cherry aroma. Pours slightly cloudy and a brownish read with a lacy head. Taste is super sweet, with cherries very present. There’s some bitterness that lingers and I can’t tell what from? Fruit? Really thin and bubbly. The problem(???) with this beer is that I can’t taste the style. It’s just a delicious cherry ale. The alcohol burn starts asserting itself halfway in. Great otherwise.
