Unfortunately, I only had a small sample of this. I could have dranken this all night. Enjoyed in the company of Mike and Tim at the brewery.

Pours out to a very dark brown with chestnut accents, forming a small albeit very creamy nitro-style tan head with excellent retention and lacing. Aroma is intense with maraschino cherry juice and freshly roasted oily French roast coffee. There is no beer here....this smells and tastes like a cold, carbonated cherry flavored coffee drink. The mouthfeel is surprisingly thin with a roasted finish. Off-flavors and alcohol are imperceptable. Easy to drink, with a ton of flavor. I have never tasted anything quite like this before. Awesome stuff from an awesome brewing company!
