look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: cloudy, dark amber light head and constantly carbonating.

S: Getting some hints of sweet berries, caramel, cherries and tropical aroma.

T: Perfect, not overly sweet, bitter, or boozy. It has some dark fruit taste, with cherries, and almost like it was barrel aged. Perfect balance.

M: mid-to-large body. not boozy and is nicely carbonated

O: must have beer and A+ rating is deserved.
