i really enjoyed this beer....awesome cherry roasted coffee aroma, with strong chocolate hints as well...flavor of cherty is a bit more subdued, but could be described as a chocolate-covered Brachs cherry cordial....very nice...

Gaylord location, from a fresh growler. Deep charcoal brown, opaque, medium tan head. Tart, very sweet aroma with emphasis on chocolate and cherry syrup. The body is drier than the aroma suggests, with chocolate and toasted malt complemented by the light, sweet notes of cherry. Rich despite being rather thin-bodied, this beer is best consumed one at a time.
