4.03/5  rDev +15.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Had on tap at Fiddler's.

A- Pours a darker brown with amber highlights when held to the light. Two finger creamy tan head shows amazing retention. Tons of thick sheety lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Big sweet cherry aroma in the front. Light chocolate hints in the middle. Almost a light hint of oak in the middle as well. No real alcohol to this at all.

T- Chocoalte malts dominate the front with hints of caramel malts. Middle shows caramel with light alcohol tones coming through. Hints of faded hops in the ending with chocolate and warming alcohol.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is light I thought for the style. Chocolate and caramel malts left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly cherry and chocolate with the chocolate fading to light oak. Balanced overall with cherry being a little dominate overall. No off flavors except a light metallic hint in the ending. Medium to heavy drying on the palate from the alcohol.

O- This beer was a pleasant surprise overall. I thought the ABV was hidden well overall while drinking this beer. Sam Adams needs to bottle this one. The flavors really were blended well together and this one shows what can happen when Sam Adams takes the time to actually brew.

3.54/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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.
