3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Slowís BBQ in Detroit, apparently a rebrew of the original from 1998ish. Interesting dark aroma, notably cherry and raisin and oak. Rich malt sweetness and a touch of alcohol rising above the liquid. Hotter in the body than the nose but not quite boozy, and many of the same flavors reappear from the aroma. An interesting beer certainly; I wonder how the original would be holding up...
