Can. The following is a compilation of a dozen peoples’ thoughts who shared this brew with me at my first (and perhaps last?) Malt Liquor Dexterity Games Tournament to celebrate my birthday. Keeping in mind that most of the participants are not regular beer raters, here we go: clear ruby-pink, smells and tastes like Robatussin cough syrup, come to think of it, I’d rather just drink the cough syrup, melted cherry slush, junior high smooches, best served cold or not at all, toilet cough syrup, Nyquil’s new brand, it’s like your love it’s bad medicine, PREMIUM cough syrup, is Robatussinesque even a word? erythromicin suspension for my ear infection is better than this. anders37 (26248) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
Can @ RBSG Grand Tasting. Pours a reddish color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity sweetish cherry aroma. Fruity sweetish cherry flavor. Has a fruity grainy sweetish cherry finish. brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Can @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Thanks for sharing, Josh. Bright red, Kool Aid colored pour. Smells like cherry Kool Aid, too. Marshmallow fluff, sugar, and soda on the nose as well. Flavor is pretty much the same. Just a lot of Kool Aid and cherry drank flavored marshmallows.

Big can sampled at RBSG’s grand tasting. Pours a deep pink color with no head. This smells and tastes like black cherry soda, specifically the Black Cherry Vess my mom would buy twice a year when we were kids. Light-medium bodied, wiht moderate carbonation and a sweet, syrupy mouthfeel. A trip down memory lane, albeit now with 12% alcohol by volume. Frank (4172) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2014
My tasting notes verbatim: RED & amazing. No head. So good. So tame. It is it’s a bit tart. Red cherry jolly rancher. kool aid. so sweet amazing

Can @ RBSG Grand Tasting. Pours a reddish appearance with a brown head. Black cherry, koolaid aroma. Super sugary, cherry koolaid flavor. Would have loved this at age 10. Homer321 (5045) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Shared at RBSG 2014. Thanks Magnus. Smells like robotussin and booze. Color is neon red. Taste is sugary grossness with sickening sugar candy. Fucken hell koolaid sugar joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 17, 2014
24 oz. can from Atom in the Krampus trade. It pours a pinkish red color with no head. The aroma bursts out with huge sweet black cherry… slightly medicinal, but mostly just syrupy sweet. The flavor…. my god this is weird. Super medicinal and strangely bitter with more sugary sweet cherry and burning alcohol. Ugh. the aspirin bitterness is killing me. 4 sips and I’m done. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Cellared this bad boy for just the right occasion. Rating number 2000 seems to be it. Pours a clear, blood red with almost no head. Aroma of rubbing alcohol, cherry cough syrup and gasoline. Taste is heavily sweet and medium sour. Like sucking down liquid jolly ranchers mixed with cotton candy and white sugar. Light bodied with a thick syrupy texture. Zero carbonation and a long, disgusting finish. There is something else in the aftertaste that makes it even worse but I can’t put my finger on it. Perfect beer for rating 2000!
