Poured aggressively in a standard pint glass.
A: amber dark red. Reminded multiple people in the room of cherry wood. A light foamy head, a few inches tall, formed but dissipated quickly after the pour.
S: More yeast than anything. Fresh biscuits on the head and light citrus undertones.
T: Strong upfront chocolate followed by dry citrus - most reminiscent of grapefruit rind.
M: Medium. Light carbonation and a dry bitter finish.
O: Very drinkable and affordable. There is little to no alcohol in the taste despite the medium/big body. The roasted chocolate upfront is usually something I don't like, but this brew did it well. I would be happy with another.

A: Deep ruby brown with light foamy head(3/3)
S: Light fruitiness...cherry?...citrusy hop notes (8/12)
T: Fruity notes on tip of tongue blend toward malty and bitter finish. Strong hang, like unripe grapefruit or strong coffee in the after-taste. ...do I detect wood?(14/20)
F: Medium body and carbonation with very dry finish (4/5)
O: Really hard to pin down the subtle notes in this one. Drank it with a friend, and we both had a hard time finding words. (7/10)
36/50
