4.25/5 rDev +10.1%
Appearance is deep, ruby red with gold hints. Nearly no head and no lacing.
Nose is a sweet blend of cherries, malt, and hops.
Taste is lots of sweet, caramel malt. Cherry is surprisingly (and excellently) nuanced. There are also cashews, medium alcohol, and biscuity yeast.
Mouthfeel is very smooth, but the finish leaves an unsavory, murky astringency.
Overall, well-made like all Troeg, but is held back from being great by a tough, murky finish.

3.48/5 rDev -9.8%
Poured from a 12oz bottle. Enjoyed at home with studying for the BJCP exam. Great appearance, a nice Cherry/Amber color. The nose smelled of honey and cherries, with a slight hint of a clear alcohol scent. The taste is balanced and smooth, with robust fruit and honey flavors.
