Tap: Brown color and not quite clear accompanied by a nice light brown head. The aroma was earthy like peat moss with a well-balanced flavor. The aftertaste seemed to be just right, not too sweet. Out of the ones I had, this one is the only one I might consider having seconds.

A decent beer, nothing too special, but smooth and tasty. Pours a beautiful ruby red with a thick white head. Smells malty, maybe a bit of marzipan. Taste is creamy, sort of empty upfront, with some coffee and toffee coming in, and a lingering sweetness on the tongue. Had in the bottle.

750 ml. swing top from Safeway. It pours a deep reddish brown color, a bit hazy with a tall light tan head. The aroma is full with sweet cherries and red fruit. Light notes of raisin bread and malt. The flavor is a bit disappointing with some metal, light molasses and raisin bread. There’s some cherry cola sweetness as well that lacks depth. It ends on a dry, toasted note. The mouthfeel is pretty thin and fizzy. Could have used a richer mouthfeel and more flavor development.

One of the most unusual beers I’ve had in a while. It had several flavor stages, one I didn’t care for somewhat like a chemical taste, but the carmel and malt flavors were quite good.
