The Last Tasting at Bruce’s palatial pad. Ta muchly to Mr Bois. Hazy dark amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Light crisp palate, semi dry. Morello cherry, a little tart. Light tangy chocolate. Semi dry finish that is also minerally crisp. Nice Cherry.
Bottle at Bruce’s, thanks to Colin.. It pours cloudy dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasty, toast, sweet cherry, red plum, prune and some tanginess. The taste is red grape, cherry, plum, light tartness, sherbet and sugar and sweetish finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Easy-drinking stuff. Alright.

Bottle shared at Bruce’s - thanks to Colin. Pours cloudy amber with a light cream head. Lots of tangy cherry in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor, further tangy cherry, mellow pit bitterness, slight funk. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, ripe and tangy cherry, fruity sugars. Quite tasty and very drinkable. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Brownish Red color with some cherry, roast and minor chocolate notes. Good, but its lost some flavor due to age. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2013

Creamy mouth feel. Flavor is very rich and full of cherry and chocolate. Really rich and tasty. PhillyCraft (7709) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Backlog review. 12oz Bottle. Poured ruby and brown with medium head and lace. Carbonation is on the lighter side of things. Aromas and flavor of dark malt, cherry, oak, chocolate. So much cherry flavor in this one. Excellent brew from NG.
