Reviewed in Episode 2 of Beauty and the Beerd.

Pours a cool muddy clay puddle type of color with a lingering head.
Complex, interesting, and delicious. Definitely one to enjoy with a partner, and one to let warm up a bit.
A beer I enjoy every time I get my hands on it.

Wow. I had seen ratings of this and immediately built it in my mind to be a life changing experience, and while it did fall just short of the latter description, it certainly wasn't far off. I suppose it'd get a full 5 out of me if its finish was just a tad smoother, because I really can't come up with anything else legitimate as a complaint.

Aroma of dark fruits and breads. Pours ruddy brown clouded body with a more than generous beige head. Head lasts and produces a lacing that lingers all the way down the glass. Taste is sour cherry, a touch alkaline very alchoholic. Unique.
