On tap at Pete’s Place. Dark red color. Essentially no head. Very syrup like. Artificial cherry juice flavors dominate this one. Better than I thought it would be.

Smells and tastes like cough syrup. Cherry juice is predominant. Not really a beer.

On tap at Blue Dog in Chalfont, PA. Are you sure this wasn't a Cherry Coke? My gateway beer was Sam Adams Cherry Wheat so I have a soft spot for this one, but I can understand why people would hate this beer. Incredibly sweet, more soda-like than anything.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Stagshead. Pours reddish brown with nice head and nose of chocolate covered cherries. Tastes just like a cherry coke not all that beery. U also get espresso, light leather, and some malt. If I was back in kindergarten this may be my favorite beer.

Draft at the pony bar in NYC. Deep black/purple color. Smells like a bock off the bat. Taste hits you with fruitiness and sugar. I taste the cherry and slight chocolate. Interesting

Not much of a beer taste. Seems a little heavy on the artificial flavoring. But...still would make for a good dessert.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: four ounce sampler from tap at The Beer Junction.
Aroma: light cherry aroma.
Appearance: small, frothy, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark brown/black body.
Taste: heavily sweet, cherry initial flavor and heavily sweet finish with average duration.
Palate: light body, creamy texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: really interesting taste--it reminded me of a rich, dark-chocolate, cherry-filled candy . . . or cough syrup. I think it would be difficult to finish more than a four ounce sampler due to the heavy sweetness. I would, however, try it again.
