Dull dark brown. Has a light aroma of hollow malts. Sour cherry character and vaguely chocolatey malts. Bleh...way off what I would want in a beer like this. Not much balance.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft… Pours very dark with flashes of crimson when help up to light and a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Great retention. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Smells and tastes like the chocolate-covered maraschino cherry included in almost all boxes of assorted chocolates. Totally artificial. Not quite cloying, but working on it. Bittersweet, chocolate/cherry finish. Not bad at all, just too artificial for me.
