3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl, corked. It pours a clear, reddish dark golden to amber body and a small, light beige head. The aroma has some cherry hints, but it’s too malty I think. Some caramel and toffee. There’s some dark dried fruits too. The flavor is less caramel malty, but with the same dried fruits and cherry hints. Full to medium body with a nice carbonation level. Lasting malty finish with a little cherry touch. Pretty decent this one, but not impressive. 140301

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The pour is a nice pinkish-red color with some pink foam forming but falling quickly.
S: We’re not off to a good start with the aroma: butter and cherry cough drops lead the way. A slight tartness, but still the aroma is overwhelmed by the artificial and medicinal cherry aroma.
T: Things do not seem to improve at all when it comes to the flavor. The nearly medicinal cherries are still there and the tartness is not all that noticeable.
M: A fairly light body with extreme carbonation, to the point of being over-carbonated.
D: Unfortunately, this one was just a pure miss. The Stony Brook Red was quite nice, so I had some real expectations for this one and it did not deliver.
