Served icy at Matthew's 1600 in Catonsville, MD. Wonderful to have a draught option of a beer previously unbeknownst to me. After the obligatory warming period, with frigid phalanges to boot, I gazed. Dark, dark, dark, ah, but what's that I see at the bottom of the glass? Gorgeous deep red peeks through the storm. Upon lowering my nose towards it, I'm hit with a tidal wave of cherry. Subtly would have been appreciated. My tongue confirms what my nose suspects. CHERRY. Creamy swishing makes for a mildly above average mouthfeel. Aftertaste is lingerful. About 2/3 thru the glass, the chocolate became more prominent. Sammy Adams, you've out-cherried yrself again.

Serving type: on-tap

Served in the Sam Adams glass this beer has a weak tan head that dissipates quickly. Brown with garnet highlights and clear. Aromas of cherry and chocolate for sure. A bit of a cola aroma. Taste is chocolate cherry cola-weird. Weak on grainy malts or hops this beer is high on carbonation and weak in body given the ABV. A fairly easy beer to drink-recommended for someone looking for a beery cherry cola. A sweet dessert beer.

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

Served in a Sam Adams signature pint glass. 

Appearance: pretty dark brown with light bubbles, head is thin I do mean real thin maybe a 1/10" if your lucky.

Smell: believe it or not light hops and brief chocolate.

Taste: Complex with a notch sweet and little bitter. You definitely feel the chocolate with its sweet bitter feel.

Mouth: it doesn't blow up my pallets but it makes you happy, medium carbonation that isnt the sharpest but just right.

Overall: almost more of a dessert than a beer, very good and incredibly built. Salud!

Serving type: on-tap
