A: Deliciously dark. Ruby slices through when held up to the light. Persistant pillowy cappuccino colored head.
S: Cocoa, wet sugar, tons of toasted malt, definite hop florals.
T: I first get a hint of dried cherries that fades fast into (diet) cola with a harshly bitter aspartame.
M: Medium-moderate body. Medium-moderate carbonation.
D: I really want to like this beer but the chemical flavors are really off-putting. Tasting was comprised of a newly purchased bottle and one from my cellar. I'll have to give this beer a revisit.
