Bottle share thanks to Homer321. whalez! Smells like a old michelob that’s been sitting in the sun for a week, with some cherries. Tastes the same, som lingering cherry cough syrup. dwyerpg (6290) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Wow, this smells like Cherry Twizzler. This is strange. Has some cherry in the flavor as well; somehow seems more like an ale than a lager. Odd. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. From notes. First off, I tried this for the first time due to a trade for secret krampus. The bottle that John brought to rbsg was quite a bit different. For a bottle that was around 8 years old, this held up very well. A little oxidized but my god, this was still a great beer. Too bad it’s done, I would live to try this vs a fresh one. scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 31, 2009
24 ounce bottle from 2007. Pours a murky amber- brown with a decent beige head that stays. Taste is of malt, cherries, chocolate and some alcohol. Has a nice sweetness to it. Aroma malt, chocolate, cherry and some alcohol. Very creamy and smooth. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Shame it isn’t more widely available.

Bullet shaped bottle from Party Town. Poured reddish brown color with a large off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid dark cherry aroma. Moderate body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium spicy sweet cherry flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid seasonal beer.

Clear reddish amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Sweet maraschino cherry and light caramel aroma. Fairly sweet maraschino cherry flavor, some graininess and a bit of caramel. Medium light body with moderate carbonation and a very sweet almost syrupy finish. Leighton (21874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle shared dulcet night during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Huge thanks to Aaron for this whale. Vintage 2007. Pours mostly clear amber with a frothy topping. Moderately sugary, with notes of cherry candies. Quite rich, in its way. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very sweet on the finish, with some ripe cherries and a bit of bread. Solid. This one has held up well. Dorwart (2604) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Thin white head of fine bubbles that recedes slowly. Soft bready malts with some light fruit and grains. Color is a nice orangeish red. Little bit sweet and malty. Light cherry flavor with some grainy straw and a bit of alcohol kick late swallow. The cherry flavor becomes more prominent as the brew warms. Finishes slick with a lingering light tartness. All in all a decent brew. Thanks Dan for sliding this my way. ChainGangGuy (4908) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, cherry-esque body with a thin, wispy, white head.
Smell: Sweetish cherries, though a touch medicinal, with a background of grainy, pale maltiness.
Taste: Sweet dark cherries, like either sparkling cherry juice or, perhaps, a cherry-flavored soda. Some faroff hints of candied caramel malts. No hop flavors or real bitterness present. Again, it’s a bit medicinal, primarily on the finish, like they added a few drops of Robitussin in for good measure.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Fine, though it’d be a good bit better sans medicine. Nice bottle presention I must say, though not one you’d want to accidentally sit on. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Sampled at the ’Butter’s Last Supper’ tasting. 2007 artillery shell bottle. Pours a bright ruby red with ring of whit head. Nose of sweet untoasted cherry Poptart™, while unique, isn’t all that offensive. Flavor is cherry cough syrup, artificial and bready. Not as bad as I was expecting.
