Ruby red with a small off white head that fades very fast and leaves no lacing. Aromas of cherries, honey, caramel, light chocolate, and medicinal. Taste opens heavy cherry and honey flavor, slight medicinal quality, burnt caramel and alcohol heat comes through. Well carbonated up front gives way to a smooth finish and full body. This is a nice change of pace, but alcohol heat and medicinal flavors keep it from being truly great.
