3.63/5 rDev +9.7%
Yellow coloured and hazy. Has a white head, medium duration. Crisp, malty aroma, yeasty too. And some spice. Coriander and faint citrus, orange. Flavor starts sweet and has a nice hoppy note, faint metallic, finish moderate bitter. Creamy texture and soft carbonation.

3.34/5 rDev +0.9%
Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a teku.
A: Medium dark brown. Pours a 1 finger, foamy, brownish head. Settles quickly leaving a foam ring and a smattering of bubbles. Beer ring lacing.
S: Roasted grains, maple syrup, and tea leaves. Some plum and raisin in there, too.
T: Light malt and plenty of plum, smoothed with maple syrup.
M: Thick and syrupy feel. Sweetness throughout. Lightly bitter finish.
D: Sip and enjoy.
Atmosphere is pretty solid. Decent head, fair lacing. Nose has some slightly roasted grain, but mostly overpowered by some candied sweetness and fruit. Mostly fruits and syrup in the flavor. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

AGED FOR A LITTLE OVER A YEAR
Smell: toast and blackberry jam with butter and balsamic vinegar
Taste: blackberries with hints if balsamic with a coca cola finish...RIDICULOUS!!!!
The reviews are low from others, probably due to them not aging this beer. Age it! If I had this beer without the age, I'd probably be with the 2.9 score crowd. Once aged, however, you have to PAIR this with French toast and vanilla bean ice cream or baby back ribs and a lot of garlic mashed potatoes and bread sticks

Pours deep reddish brown with an off-white head. No lace.
Tart cherry and caramel and some toasted malt in the nose. Oddly mild.
Mild tart cherry mingled with some caramel and toasted malt. Finishes mildly tart, mildly bitter with a butter note as the palate clears.
Decent medium body with good carbonation.
Out of balance and not enough bitter, tart, or transitional complexity. Just ok.

2.2/5 rDev -33.5%
330ml bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a very dark amber-brown body with a thin, collapsing, light beige head.
Smell: Gives an impression of store-brand cherry cola, though, as it warms, some more sensible malt notes hit the snout. Still, it remains very sweet-scented.
Taste: The flavor races by tastes of cherry juice, light toast, lighter roast, plum jelly, cola to hit a relatively modest, vinegary tartness that's instantly covered by a full-on toothsome sweetness that lasts until the rather fruit, but also very sweet finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Sweet enough to make one shudder in revulsion (I know I did). Like cherry cola dosed with stray Pixy Stix. Oooh, you see? I shuddered again. I'll likely shudder again when I see how much I wasted on this thing.
