A birthday gift from brewdude1982. A 32oz growler from his trip to Asheville.

A - black with a large, dense, soft, foamy brown head that has great retention

S - chocolate covered cherries, cough syrup, red wine

T - subtle tartness, faint chocolate, raspberries, faint yeast, warming alcohol in the finish

M - light to medium bodied, a bit warm in the finish, well carbonated

This is an interesting beer. I was impressed with the aroma. It really does smell like chocolate covered cherries, but borders on medicine. The taste is a bit odd to me. I get the cherries. I get the chocolate though it's faint. It's a nice flavor, but it's not full-flavored. The mouthfeel is also a bit surprising. This is soft and light; very easy to drink. Overall, this is a unique beer that is definitely worth a try. I would have preferred it to have been more full-flavored, but I certainly wouldn't ever pass this up.
