A: The beer is clear and very dark reddish brown in color (black when viewed from afar). It poured with a thin white head, but this only lasted for a few seconds and completed faded away.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of cherry cola are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and seems to be a touch syrupy with associated sweetness. The black cherry flavors seem to be rather artificial.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This "beer" tasted like a cherry cola soda, except that it was less carbonated.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass

Pours and looks just like a cola, dark brown with no head retention and lots of carbonation, some ruby edges.

Smells like a cherry cola, very artificial smell like a cheap store brand soda, strong aroma no alcohol on the nose.

Horrible, artificial sweet, semi-tart cherry cola flavor, sweet syrupy aftertaste, taste like cherry flavored cough medicine

Light bodied with lots of carbonation, has the mouthfeel of a soda

Overall, I don't know what to think of this and I don't why any beer drinker would enjoy this, taste like an awful cherry cola.

As a drink, something you could have as a dessert or with ice cream, this is pretty darn good. But from a purely beer perspective, this is just plain awful.

This product is touted as the best damn cherry cola - and if you're looking for a cherry coke with a couple of splashes of vodka added to it - this is your drink. But if you're looking for a cherry cola flavored beer, then just walk away. As what I would call a "dessert beer" this would be great actually. Throw in a scoop of vanilla or whatever you like and make an alcoholic float and you're good to go. But if you're looking to have a fruit beer, infused with cherries, this just doesn't cut it. Heck, I had a gose recently that was infused with cherries way better than this (and I'm not really partial to the gose style.) Anyway, rating this from a purist standpoint it's pretty bad, but again, if you're looking to try something as a dessert, this might just work.
