2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark brown color with a tan head and bits of lacing. Aroma of chocolate, cherries, some vanilla, roasted malt and a lot of sweetness. Taste of cherry, chocolate, malt and a syrupy sweetness. Mild bitterness and a slightly sticky finish. Fairly full body, smooth, sticky and fruity. Decent beer but too sweet for my taste.

Cherry aroma. Dark brown color. Sips medium and tastes strongly of cherry. This brew is quite fruity and mostly cherry dominated. The chocolate taste is very mild and comes in slightly in the middle.

12 oz bottle from mix pack. Pours dark brown color with amber highlights and a very small head that has poor retention. The aroma is big and bold with cherry cough syrup. The taste is similar with lots of robust cherry in the forefront eventually giving way to a chocolate malt base. The palate is gull and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration with lingering mocha. Overall: Kinda Weird.

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark, dark red. Heavy artificial cherry-flavored aromas. Subtle vanilla and chocolate mocha notes in an otherwise very sweet dark ale. Too sweet for my taste, with a slightly unappealing bitter finish.

26 dec 2013, bottle. Dark burgundy/brown. Nose is canned maraschino cherries. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Cherries are tamed by toasted grain and almost a ginger ale flavor no guess it is nice enough.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
Dark jet black, tan head, cherry and chocolate aroma. Taste is cherry up front and chocolate/lactose tart finish. Taste has that artificial cherry flavor I’m not fond of. I was expecting a little more from this one, too much artificial flavoring cherry. I finished, but will probably bring the other one to a homebrew party..
