Pours dark roasted chestnut unclear with a decent creamy and lacey darker beige head. The aroma has slight cherry juice and wild yeast astringency. The flavor brings the wild yeast as well, with light sweet fruity notes that settle delicately on the palate. I remember much bigger flavor, especially from the cherry juice. I think I sat on it too long. kcorum10 (347) - Idaho, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Aromas of cherries, grapes, and bananas. Flavors of some darkness and a mild sweet finish. PhillyCraft (7216) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle shared with Keith, pours black with giant mocha head, lasts forever. Aromas of cherry juice, dark chocolate, light brett, taste is black sharpie, wood, cocoa dust, booze, and barrel. A lot rougher compared to nose. Medium to full body, warming in chest. Needs more carbonation and less marker flavor. annunz123 (957) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 17, 2013
Aroma is very fruity with grape, cherry, and spice. Sweet and sour flavor with a wine-like grape flavor. Definitely different and certainly good, but not great. 77ships (9776) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 1, 2013

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy light brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated opaque dark brown colored body. The aroma was brown malt musty and dark malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of brown malt and cherry. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2012
