3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at brewery. Pours a dark brown with tan head. A bit lacy. Aroma is chocolate, sweet and tart cherry notes and hints of bitter chocolate. Faint yeast. Taste is chocolate cherry up front, with hints of burnt toast, a yeasty funk and faint coffee. A bit rough, nice flavors, but not really smooth. Palate is medium body, medium carb. It’s OK.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shaker pint draft at the brewery in Denver, Colorado. The pour is opaque black, with a 1.2 inch tan head. Nice lacing left behind int he glass. The aroma is cherry fruit, general vanilla sweetness, than a nice roast character. The taste is the nose, decent balance between the cherry sweetness (with a mild tartness) and the roast malt. The sweetness gets pretty close to cloying as the beer warms. The palate is medium bodied, soft natural carbonation and the sweet cherry finish. The tartness is a bit more evident in the aftertaste. Decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I enjoyed this a bit more than the Kriek. The roast notes add a dimension that cuts some of the sweetness without losing the big pie aroma and spicing. Like having pie and a coffee.
