A - Cola brown with ruby brown hues. Medium sized, light, foamy head. Disappears fast without much lacing.
S - Sweet cherries up front. At first it was an artificial jolly-rancher type of cherry aroma but after awhile I was getting more maraschino cherry aroma. Chocolate and cocoa are also strong and fairly sweet. In the back some caramel notes but predominantly it's the cherries and chocolate.
T - Tastes a lot like the chocolate covered cherry cordials. Sweet cherries followed by sweet and slightly bittersweet chocolate. Cocoa and subtle roasted flavors creep in. A slight caramel sweetness on the finish.
M - Medium to light carbonation. Thin and somewhat silky.
D - Kind of a one note beer to me, and one that you need to be in the mood for. Fortunately, I enjoy Cordials from time to time during the winter and could easily find two times to be in the mood to drink this. Not something I'd want a six pack of but I like it as something different in the Winter 12 pack.

12oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
(A)- Pours a pitch black color. Produced some tan froth and bubbles.
(S)- A wonderful aroma of chocolate covered cherries with just a hint of raisins. Dessert in a glass.
(T)- A slight chalkiness meets a ton of chocolate covered cherries. Ever so slight medicinal(cough syrup) quality to the fruit, but subtle.
(M)- A good carbonation level. I like the balance aside from the chalky medicinal parts. It gets to be rather sweet as it warms.
(O)- The smell is glorious. Too bad the rest of the beer is not up to par.
