Ernest (7481) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly/fully diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of cherry cough syrup, grape juice, alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. This is kinda like really boozy cherry-grape soda. A novelty beer geared to get you f’ed up, I guess.

kidobutai (653) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Beautiful clear golden ale, not much head. Honey and spices on the nose. But the taste is almost shocking, thick and syrupy, like a dark brown ale.

jsporrer (838) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2016
On tap sample from HO1K. Pours a deep caramel brown with a thin off white ring. Aroma of sweet malt whiskey. Semi-sweet fruity flavor with a hint of whiskey without the burn. Fairly smooth and feels a little watered down. Hides the alcohol well. Pretty enjoyable but just a little muted on the flavors.

trapped (2607) - New York, TURKEY - DEC 28, 2015
Draught @ Albion. Clear amber red color with small foamy beige head, caramel aroma, sweetish caramel taste with vanilla like flavor, medium carbonation, long caramel finish. Smooth but a it too sticky sweet.

demannu (422) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 25, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2016 Aroma of sweet honey and cherries. Cherry flavor is somewhat syrupy in flavor, honey impacts the palate more than the flavor. Mouthfeel also has a syrupy quality. Better winter beer than those spiced ales but still not amazing.

rumproasts (5280) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2015
bottle from at least two years ago. Deep golden orange with small head. Big boozy body, reminds me a bit of an old ale. Cherry flavor comes through nicely. Warming, and not too harsh. A sipper, but very nice winter beer.

Jow (3652) - New York, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Tap at stags head came for 4.5% IPA but that was kicked so grabbed this big fella. Red pour small head pretty. Nose is medicinal cherries. Tastes of cherries, honey, medicine, sweet malt, candy some Christmas spice. Semi sweet non sticky. Booze is hidden. Clean palate touch too medicine on finish though.
