Tasting Notes: Dark red in color with a thick cream head. A slight caramel aroma. Flavor is of rich treacle. Moderate carbonation with a good mouth-feel.
Description: This strong ale has a clear alcohol presence, a complex fruity palate, and a dry, spicy, rather assertive hop counterbalance in the finish. It was first brewed and named during the demolition of the old Fourth and Washington parking structure when downtown felt like Jurassic Park and all of its neighbors needed something a little stronger to get us through! The Michigan Microbrewery and Brewpub Guide calls it, “an excellent, true-to-style beer with a subtle yet distinct chocolate covered cherry quality.”
Comments: Bitterness = 50 IBUs.
