A: The pour is an amber tinted dark red color with a thin tan head forming.

S: The nose offers up some fruity notes. There's not really anything in particular other than some black cherries and grapes. Otherwise it's the popular "dark fruits" descriptor. Fairly toasty with some toffee malt aroma.

T: Lots of cough syrup flavor to this beer. Yum. It seems to be cherry and grape flavored...A bit of toasted bread and some dark sugar flavors.

M: The body is medium and the carbonation is sort of low.

D: Good if you've got a craving for Robitussin, but not so much in terms of what I like in a beer.

This brew was quite a suprise. It was a dark reddish colour with a small white head that lasted quite a while and left good lacing. The aromas were of coriander and other spices, wheat, malts, candy sugar, and hops. The taste was a bid medicinal and alcoholic, but very refreshing and wheaty as well. The mouthfeel was quite nice and the drinkability was good.
