brokensail (12508) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 9, 2010
A: The pour is a dark mahogany color, sort of cola like, with a fluffy off-white head. S: A nice fruity nose, especially heavy on the cherries. Almost a cherry cola sort of aroma to it. Some sweet chocolate and sweet roasted malts. T: The flavor profile is quite similar to the nose. Good sweetness to the beer that is (again) very cola like. Some light roasted malts, fairly sweet, however. A bit of a fruitiness, too. M: The body is definitely on the thin side with a medium level of carbonation. D: I was expecting this to be pretty bad, given the gimmicky label and the fact that I bought it at a crappy liquor store in Vegas, but I actually enjoyed it.

bhensonb (12149) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Thanks to Douglas88 for this bottle. Beautiful clear ruby color with a good beige head. Aroma of roasted caramel with a touch/hint of smoke. Full body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet roast caramel, but there are notes of coffee and smoke. And hints of fruit. Finish is moderately sweet, and there’s not much hop bitter. But the whole thing is a feast for the mouth.
