This beer is about the perfect color in my opinion with a great red/brown color and virtually no head. It has a nice cherry smell, if a little sweet. The beer has a non-descript sweet flavor, kinda like someone added sugar to my beer. It’s not bad by any means and I’d probably get it again, but not as an everyday beer. It is a bit syrupy and kinda coats the tongue. While it’s not heavy by any means it is a little thick.

 

I really like this beer but it’s definitely a ‘once-in-a-while’ beer. It would be a little much on a regular basis.

I’m usually worried about clever names like this. It feels as if an enormously clever frat-boy, douche-bag got high one night and felt, I mean REALLY felt, that “Butt-head” would be an “Awesome!!” name. Fortunately, this beer wasn’t “that” bad. It was OK. The main detriment was the after taste. The initial taste was good but the after taste reminds me of a bad dish with some sort of fake cheese.

Lovely deep red color but no head at all. Smells like caramel, but in a good way. Very, very heavy alcohol taste that overpowers the other tastes way too much. Silky and smooth mouth feel but oh!!! that alcohol. This is definitely not a casual drinking beer, not unless you dig passing out early, but it’s good!

The amazing red color on this beer almost makes up for the minimal head that is present. At first smell there is clearly heavy alcohol but quickly a strong cherry aroma comes to the front. Overall taste on this beer is pleasant as long as it is in small doses. The thick feel and sweet flavors make this a wonderful beer but something that could not be a session drinker.
