look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

heard a lot about this beer so decided to try it with our tasting of red ales okay so its not really a red ale by category but it is by color haha plus i had already tried the hopback amber

smells awesome and just like the appearance deep red chestnut definitely tell this one is a monster underneath a cherry spice and plum aroma there was a big booze aroma not that i didn't like it sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't and this time it happened to work really well

the taste was really super delicious the chocolate comes in the end but there is a bitter cherry pit taste too its funny it almost is on the verge of being really really great but its held back just a little bit by something

my favorite thing about it is the pure mouthfeel of this beer it has a real nice thick but not overpowering coating it gives you really nice!

nice seasonal brew and glad i tried it
