This is one of those beers that is hard for me to judge because it's just not a style I personally like.

Smells awesome as a cherry beverage, very strong with a slight undertone of extract alcohol.

Nice color dark red, very strong sweet zippy cherry burst, the feel of real cherries and that slight taste of extract mixed in. The taste overpowers any actual beer flavorings, no malt or hop character comes through.

This beer was a hit with my girlfriend that does not like beer, I gave it to her to finish.

I am new at reviewing beers, so I am not the most familiar with all the standard categories, but I loved this beer. It was the perfect blend of tart and sweetness for my tastes. It makes me think of IBC Black Cherry soda, which I love!!
If you like fruity beers and are not in to hoppy beers, you might find this very yummy.

The best thing I can say is that ounce for ounce, it is cheaper than cherry cough medicine. The cherry is cloyingly sweet. There is a light tartness that is insufficient for balancing sweetness. There is a bitter medicinal aftertaste. Is this sweetness artificial? Is that where the bitterness is coming from? Disappointing

Bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled on 1/25/2012 not sure how age affects this beer

A: Dark ruby red with a pink head that died fairly quickly

S: Cherry liquor. Cherry liquor. Cherry liquor. haha some other dark fruit characteristics but mostly that sweet cherry smell

T: Sweet cherries, some almost cinnamon taste/warming affect. Interesting. I would have liked a little more tartness to balance out the sweet, but still good

M: more coating than I thought it would be

O: First time for this beer and it is quite an experience. Was expecting a slightly tart cherry belgian ale and get a cherry lifesaver. Like I said, this being my first experience and with 2+ years on it, not sure how accurate this review will be for some people who get it fresh (I got this for $1.50 and didn't check the bottled on date...oops!). Good after dinner drink
