A - Dark, porter-like, not completely opaque, not much head.

S - Cherries, malt, heavy bourbon, chocolate.

T - Tart cherries hit first, followed by boozy bourbon (vanilla and oak), caramel, and dark chocolate. Somewhat sweet, somewhat tart.

M - Syrupy, smooth, but light. Would like it to be a bit heavier.

O - Great beer, not as good as Bell's BB Cherry, or CW's base beer, BBS, but great nonetheless.

Thanks to jrocco2021 for this one.

A- Pours black with a big head that disappears right away.
N- Smells of tart cherry, but little else
M- Thin. I expected something much chewier and thick. A little over carbonated for the style
T- mild tart cherry. Nice malt backbone. Hops just enough to make sure it's not too sweet
O- An ok beer from a great brewery. Glad I tried it in a trade, but would be disappointed if I paid more than $8 for a sixer.
