Bottle from World of Beer as a carryout. Pours dark, deep red colored with a finger of pink head that recedes quickly. Cherry boquet off the top of this one , slightly tart but mostly black sweet ones, a bit of cranberry note, very fruity and not much else going on, though it's nice if you're a fan of cherries. Flavor is a big punch of black cherries, not much in the way of hops or malt or yeast or sourness here. Basically black cherry juice with some carbonation. Nevertheless, this isn't extremely overly sweet and is somewhat pleasant as a dessert beer. Medium bodied with plus carbonation that keeps things from being super syrupy. Overall worth having if in the mood for cherries. The thing that sticks out to me here is that it comes with huge black cherry flavor, but without the medicinal cough syrup notes that can often be associated with that.

No... not really for me. The huge raspberry flavor in the aroma and taste really come across as more "cough syrup" like than anything. Not very drinkable, had to sip slowly. There's not a whole lot to this beer other than that fruity flavor that overpowers everything else. A little alcohol bitterness and some metallic aftertaste.

The beer pours a dark reddish brown body, has a delicious cherry smell and the flavor is of strong cherry syrup. Very solid beer, but hard to drink a lot of this at once.
