Draft into a snifter at San Diego Brewing Company for $6.00at San Diego Brewing Company in San Diego, Calif., on Nov. 12, 2012. Reddish brown with khaki tan head. Great retention on the sides, average retention on the top. Smelled cherries, sour cherries, caramel, toffee, Cherry Garcia and dark fruits. Tasted sour cherries, toffee, tart and dark fruits. A bit bland an disappointing overall. Medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. After some high hopes, this just didn’t work. Probably wouldn’t have it again.

joeneugs (4855) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 6, 2013
On tap at the Sliders pub inside the Alameda County Fair. It pours a clear dark reddish color with a rather large off white head. The aroma is pretty standard brown ale fare. Toasty malts, light cocoa powder and just a faint hint of cherry fruit. The flavor is the same, mostly toasted brown malt with hints of fruity sweetness. Decent dry finish. I was hoping for more cherry flavor and more body.

onceblind (6377) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Clear nutty brown with a generous foamy light beige head. Sweet aroma with some nutty brown ale maltiness with a slight hint of cocoa, with a light tone of dark cherries hidden underneath. Flavor is balanced and sweet, though lacking a little bit on body. Light nutty malt and some not-too-sweet chocolate tones mix with a bready yeastiness and a very light generic cherry flavor that I wish was stronger. Nice beer, but it needs more of everything, particularly cherry if its going to be named this.
