From 12oz bottle to lager glass. Pour is a dark copper color with an off white thick head. Nose is hoppy, heavy malt. Taste is bitter, medium-heavy body with a sour finish. Nice carbonation, overall a good beer. I will probably try this again this winter, might have a better feel for it then.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. A finger thick light beige head sits patiently on top of a clear, amber to brown body. The aroma is on the malty side, toffee and some roasted notes. Not much hoppiness going on. Some in the aroma though, bringing balance. Toffee and some roasted hints. Full body with a pleasant carbonation. Lasting lightly roasted finish with a good bitterness. A pleasant beer, well suited for the cold season. 130805

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma takes a big hit on points. Even while pouring, smells of burnt cherry candy are floating about. But, they did a good job fermenting it and it quite as sweet. Still, sweetness is the dominant flavor (if that makes since). Just not a fan what they put together here.
