bottle: pours dark mahogany with huge beige head. Arouma is musty, fruity and sweet. Taste is sweet and sour, fruity and hint of chocolate. Too much carbonation and not very well balanced. Not a big fan of this one.

This was just awful. The cherries were very artificial and overly sweet. Little other flavor was present. Blah.

Chocolate aroma with hint of cherry. Slightly metallic in taste but definite roasted malts and cherry in aftertaste. Interesting flavor but good.

blklab2007 (2085) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 3, 2009
bottle poured a cola color with a fizzy soda pop off white head. aroma has tart cherry, odd chocolate, light pepper, and some minerals. thin fizzy mouth feel leads to some sour cherry, medium brown malt, metals, and a dry finish.

deyholla (7955) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2009
On tap at MBG Summer Festival. Poured black with a brown head. Dark chocolate notes with an under tone of cherry. Flavor consisted of dark notes and cherry notes but they combated each other rather than mixing well.

Headbanger (3515) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2009
12oz bottle 7/24/09 (Siciliano’s Market-Grand Rapids)-Pours black with a loose tan head and an aroma of cherry and slight malt. Taste of cherry and slight malt. This medium bodied brew has the cherry taste overpowering any other flavors. Not what I was expecting.

carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Pours a dense dark cherry wood brown. Large, frothy, light brown head. Moderate to well-formed Belgian lace. Persistent head. The initial nose is light and suggests tart cherries. Moderate carbonation. Much lighter body than expected. If tasting blind, I would not have identified it as a stout but perhaps placed as a porter. Very modest fruit/cherry notes on the palate. If I had no visual queues, but had to categorize, I would lean toward a Flemish brown ale. Short, dry finish. Lingering notes of cherry pits. Moderate alcohol. Did the cherry concentrate replace or camouflage th hops? Quite pleasant, but not what I’d expect in a stout. One is enough.
