3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
