Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
A - Dark reddish-amber color, about 3/4 finger of head, but I've poured more aggressively in the past and gotten much more. Decent lacing on the glass, but doesn't last.
S - Attractive, but not strong, smells of malt and cherry, among others.
T - Personally, I think it's excellent. The same cherry that could be smelled, maybe even a little fallen leaves and smokiness, but the beer reminds the drinker of the fall season it's designed for. Malt-heavy in a good way, with a good balance of necessary hops, and the cherry isn't overpowering.
M - Rich and heavy, but not to the highest degree. Different flavors came out when it hits different parts of the tongue, and when held on the palate, forms into tiny bubbles that go down as smoothly as the liquid form.
O - For awhile this was my overall favorite beer, and what turned me on to malt-leaning beers and made me a malt guy. Great overall and really puts you in the mood for the fall season and everything that comes with it. A must for any malt fan.
