look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

A-just a slightly hazy goldenrod color with a good 2 finger head that fades slowly to a small cap

S-black cherries right from the start to the finish with not much in between

T-black cherries dominate here as well but the is a slight floral taste that fome through as well

M-good carbonation with a light to medium body

O-nice offering if you like cherries, pretty straight forward beer with out much complexity

This is a unique beer and the first of its style for me. It smells very strongly of black cherries, it really dominates on the nose but you can pick up other smells like brown sugar. It drinks just as it smells, black cherries. The taste isn't as strong as the smell but the cherry flavor is still dominant. It also has some light grain and wheat flavors. This beer has a surprisingly full mouth feel, its not the ideal beer to drink a lot of but the texture is all there. It has a dry and cherry flavored aftertaste which is really take it or leave it to me. This is a decent offering from Sam Adams, certainly not their flagship beer. Its decent for what it is and is good enough to spark some interest in the style for me.
