3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish very dark brown with a disappearing white head. Aroma dominated by cherry (acid-y) and oak which has notes of vanilla and coconut. Sweet with fruity acid and a long lasting dryness. Very interesting experiment, but the coconut turned me off.

Bottle shared by shigadeyo.
Poured dark brown color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate dark cherry and sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy tart cherry sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration.
This is a standout beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The pour is a mildly muddled mahogany color (apologies for the consonance).
S: Pure cherries on the nose. A really nice sweetness and fruit note that is almost reminiscent of the Wisconsin Belgian Red.
T: The cherries come through strongest off the bat and are nice and sweet, but not artificial tasting at all. As the beer warms and subsequent sips are taken, a nice chocolate flavor comes out. This one has an almost tootsie roll taste to it.
M: The body is medium with a nice moderate carbonation to it.
D: One of the best of the Unplugged beers to this point. I really loved the great cherry flavor and the stout component underneath.
