A - Body is dark brown. Shows clean and clear with bright garnet highlights when brought to the light. Lighter, cleaner body than I expected really. Head started small, fizzy, and light brown. Gone in an instant with a light beige ring around the glass remaining.

S - Root beer? Strong black licorice. Lots of red fruit sweetness. I keep looking for some dark malt notes of chocolate or some roastiness, but keep coming up empty.

T - Starts off with grape juice. Quickly moves to a strong red fruit sweetness with cherry syrup very up front and center. Big time black jelly bean all over towards the end. Root beer. I am still trying to figure this out. Only for an instant can I get the lightest faint hint of cocoa.

M - Medium bodied. Thin for the style. Carbonation is super low.

Overall - Well, this is about as far from the mark of what I expected as it possibly could have been. Sweet and thin rather than rich and thick. Strangely, I thought this was supposed to be the recipe they bought from Heavyweight for Perkuno's Hammer. It tastes nothing like it. Disappointed.
