1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
I didnít really get much of a distinct smell. If I was blindfolded and told to guess what I smelled it would be "a beer". Pours a dark brown with a light tan head that leaves more than a lacing throughout. A tart cherry dominates. Maybe at the end there is a mild malt taste. Slight chocolate? Hard to tell as the tartness overpowers everything. Very thin. Drinkable, but very forgettable.

The pour seems nice, dark with a thin off white head. The only aroma I detect is a hint of coffee. The taste is interesting, rapidly moving from a fizzy malt that moves to cherry really quick, getting more and more tart cherry as you swallow. A bit odd, but I like it.

If I couldíve given less than 1 star I wouldíve. Absolutely horrible. I love stouts and cherry beers. This is NOT a stout. Pours thin. Bitter, bitter, not-even-cherry flavor. Horrible waste of money. Huge disappointment.

Poured a black colour with a lively head, but small nose. In the mouth, it is very thin with cherry on the forefront, but not in a good way, it over powers just a bit.

12 ounce bottle. Translucent reddish brown color. Small creamy beige head. Light roasted malt nose is faint. Tart cherry flavor is dominant. Some roasted malt. Not very stout like. Some roastiness and cocoa notes. Light bodied and disappointing. Lacks complexity and depth. Mostly tart and thin.

Dark brown pour with a light tan head. Aromas of slight cherries and watery malts. Flavor is way too thin! Itís like a watery stout with cherries. The flavors that are there are good this beer just needs to be so much bigger than it is currently.

On tap at Danís on February 21. I donít know where to even start on this. The pour is incredibly thin, almost like cola, and there is a light light tan head that fades down quickly, leaving almost no lace. The aroma is a little malty maybe, with some cherry in it. The flavor is also thin, and the cherry is just there in a light passing. The mouth feel is extraordinarily watery, and I just have a hard time passing this as a stout.
