This is one of my go-to beers, the cherry flavor is what gets me every time, with the perfect balance of hops. The color is also one of my favorites. I have had this beer on tap a couple of times, but I think that it is best served poured from the bottle in a low baller glass.

A: Pours plum color with a fluffy off white head that disappears quickly but leaves some nice lacing and good cauldron

S: Brown sugar, plum, hints of banana and spice

T: Dark fruit at first, a spicy note in the middle, and a sugary sweetness at the end.

O: Not bad, I wish the smell was a bit more elaborate, but still a fine ale.
