3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 32 oz. "Crowler" can. The beer was listed simply as "Bell's Third Coast w/cherries, 11.6%." However, it appears to be the same as Bell's Traverse City Cherry.
Opaque, deep dark brown with a 2 mm khaki head and fair lacing.
Aroma of toffee, dark cherries, whiskey and vanilla.
Taste of brown sugar, caramel, sweet dark fruit, cherries, whiskey and oak.
Medium/full body and medium/high carbonation.
The description sounded great, but the beer is nothing special. It has plenty of flavors, but their blending seems less than the sum of the parts.

draft sampler is tea colored beer with little to no head. this was one big disappointment. I got very little cherry in the nose or in the flavor. it was just an aged mess of nothingness really. if this is a barley wine it was very weak indeed. just not a fan of this one at all.

Amber pour with no head or lacing. Aroma is too weak with nothing really standing out. The taste is clean and a little too smooth for the style. Just an ok beer for me!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(En fût à Hamilton’s Tavern - listé à 12.7%): Une lame confiturée tranche sournoisement une base céréalière touffue, riche mais peu sucrée, avec une brillante contribution du décadent spiritueux. Très facile à boire. Heureusement parce que je commençais à manquer de main une fois passé au buffet mensuel.
