Brownish red color, tons of large sediment chunks floating. Very sweet version of a red slightly sour. I think it's infected

The Libertine pours a hazy cloudy red color with no head. Very sweet aroma, much like cherry cool-aid. Taste is cherry and earthy. A bit hard to swallow. Very flat, not feel. Overall, no.

Poured from the bottle a dark orange-amber with no head.

Aroma of sweet caramel malts, tea, and booze.

The taste had a watered down booze thing going on with a really sweet tea finish.

Medium bodied and wet with a flat carbonation.

I didn't really enjoy this beer. Too sweet and too flat.

Pours reddish amber with a thin head that becomes a wisp. Minimal lacing.

The smell is of lightly roasted caramel with a touch of pine.

The taste is of caramel and alcohol. Some red apple mixes in. A touch of pine and a hint of roast balances some of the sweetness, though it remains mainly sweet (and boozy). Sweet finish.

It is medium-to-full bodied. A bit sticky. Could use an extra bubble or so...

A sweet malty brew. I liked the second half less than the first. It becomes rather flat a bit too quickly, and it is sweet without much complexity in my opinion. Overall, it's decent enough for a malty, boozy brew. But, to me, it lacks much in the way of character. It's okay, but not really a fan.
