FUN Series 006: BA Hellfighter with Cherries

Very similar to the base beer, but with cherries. Cherries were not tart or sweet, just right to provide a little extra flavor that didn't over power the base beer. Some vanilla and light coconut.

Not sure if something was wrong with the brew or if that's just how this beer is meant to be. It was incredibly yeasty and reminded me of a homebrew that was not well executed. Couldn't taste any roasted flavors over the yeast and slightly tart cherry. No sweetness as I would expect in a big beer like this. Very disappointing overall.
