Pours flat, like every other Epic beer I had that night. It's understandable, though, considering this one's high ABV.

Smells lightly like cherries. That's about it. I never come across such a mild aroma in such a big beer.

Tastes a lot better than it smells, because it actually tastes like something. Light nodes of natural cherries, slightly heavier nodes of red wine, and then a finish of very light yeast. Nothing about this beer is bad or offputting, but everything is very slight and dim.

I like the concept of what they're doing here--sort of like with Prairie does with Noir, or Pipeworks with their Abduction--and I'm glad they're doing this with a beer that's not a heavy stout. I only wish the base beer was better brewed.
