SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2006
Deep ruby. Large, frothy, off white head. Very light aroma of well rounded malt, sweet cherries, and alcohol. Same kind of flavor, the volume turned way down. Honey also detectable. Sweet, alcoholic finish. Up front the body is thin, but by the finish it is pretty big. Smooth throughout. Disappointing, flavor and aroma are timid.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with kramer17801 - Thanks Jason! - Pours bright amber with a short offwhite head. Aromas of caramel, cherry, orange, and a touch of honey. Flavor is orange, cherry, a bit of spice, some honey, and a bit of bubblegum. Palate is medium bodied and dangerously drinkable for 11%. I couldn’t find the alcohol at all. Not bad but really nothing outstanding here

On Tap. This is another beer that seriously suffers from being bottled. It has a thin white head. Sweet aroma of cherry and oranges. Flavor is rather sweet as well, and can be overpoweringly alcoholic. After drinking about ten glasses of this throughout the winter season, I have had my fill until next year.

Bottle Pours a flat amber with a fizzy white head, which diminishes fairly steadily. Has a good aroma of cherry and malts with a touch of hoppiness. Has a medium body with a slick texture. Has a lively carbonation. A good duration with a slightly metalic chalky finish. This brew hides the 11% very well. Has hints of a Belguim. I’m proud that Troegs, a fine local brewer can brew such a quality product. Just another reason to look foward to Christmas.

KUEric (968) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2006
12 oz Bottle: Pours a suprisingly red color (just look over to the picture on the left and you’ll see what I mean). No head whatsoever. The aroma isn’t the most overpowering but does have some nice fruit aromas (cherries, pears and grapefruit) and some subtle woody, alcohol, bubble gum notes mixed on my nose. The taste isn’t gomplex, but tastey. Some cherries, pears, and almost apple juice flavor to it with some minimal other flavors floating around. Far, far away from being complex, but quite enjoyable.

Special thanks to pineypower for this EXTRA in a trade. Brownish Red pour with a small head. High in the aroma of sour cherries, but that was about all I could get out of it. Flavors were better with a sweet maltiness and more sour cherry and alcohol warming on the finish. Pretty tasty. And I was quite suprised by the ABV when I found out.

Courtesy of PineyPower. <P> Aroma is strong with cherries, malt and hints of nuts. Pour is amber/red with just a hint of a head. Flavor is nutty and malty with hints of fruit and sweetbread. Have no idea where they are hiding 11% alcohol. Tastes like 6% if that. Finish is the most cherry laden. A very interesting beer. Quite pleased with it.
