Dark chestnut brown with a ruby tinge. Less than a finger of tan-tinted head. Fruity malt aroma with a definite flat-cherry-cola thing going on. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel. Very sweet up front, with more cherry and just a little chocolate, and a slight lingering hop bitterness for balance in the aftertaste. It's fine, but doesn't compare to the classics.

12 oz bottle. Pours light brown with tall, long lasting, fluffy beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready malt, sweet cherries, caramel and hint of coffee. Body is full, creamy and slightly crisp. Taste is of caramel malt, herbal hops, cherries and peppery alcohol. Finish is long, sweet first then becomes dry and peppery. Rich, tasty excellent brew.

Looks like a very normal, run of the mill light dark beer. Bit of a dark amber brown. Has a solid smell, sweet smell maybe the slightest hint of caramel apple in there. Tast was a little plain although not unenjoyable. Dark sweet almost sticky notes of some kind of syrup that I cant quite place. Finish very smooth with flavor spread throughout. Overall not a bad beer but my first try of this kind so maybe its just not my favorite style. Would try again though.

After a few recent disappointments from this brewery I was reluctant to pick this up but am glad I did.
