"Poured thick, black, intense, and infinitely sticky. I could literally smell this thing from several feet away. Is this a Black IPA or stout? Infinitely bright, fruity, and candy-like, but with a good bit of grainy char thrown in for safe measure. Actually, the char hit the palate first, but then the semi-sweet goodness fill the mouth shortly after. Still, this is almost a black and tan: big stout infused with an East Coast IPA. However, it had this overall black cherry quality that was flat out awesome. Thick and gooey, RIDICULOUS lacing, and the carbonation was nice and low." Reviewed by: Beeradvocate.com
