A very special limited release that can only come from Texas! It is all thanks to my friend Aaron at www.beermetaldude.com. This is the second time I try a Deep Ellum beer and when I say the first one I tried, Four Swords, it was awesome. Now here is a beer that tell you what it’s gonna be about and there is not much you can do to escape it. This beer looks very seductive and sweet. When my friend Aaron first showed me a picture I was like Holy SHIT YES!!! DO WANT! So now here it is. Straight from the heart of Dallas Texas, traveling to California, here is the review. Cheers to you Aaron and the good folks at Deep Ellum! Thank you !

Overall:
I am a sucker for sweet cherry chocolate and seductive beers. What can I say . This ones out there! IT really has a rich complexity of sweets and enough coffee and earthy hops to keep everything in check but this is mainly a sweet awesome beer. If you somehow end up in Texas or were very fortunate enough to get this limited piece or can trade for it, GET IT! It is really is delicious and awesome.

Anime Corner:
Yoko Littner from Gurren Lagann was used in this pairing because I kinda wanted to sensualize the sexual cherry chocolate aspect that this beer brings. The label colors and the flavors pair all. Way too well that is is scary but pleasant. Perfect in all ways yes! The style of the art work used in the label and how it uses splashes of colors definitely pairs well. Yoko Represents all the cherry, chocolate and dark fruit of the beer.
