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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown pour with a light tan head. Aromas of slight cherries and watery malts. Flavor is way too thin! It’s 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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2016 On tap at Dan’s on February 21. I don’t 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. Lots of metallic bullshit. 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. Out of a bottle is the same. Atwater blows so hard.

Bottle. Pours Coca-cola amber with a slight beige head. Aroma of chocolate, sour cherry, cereal. Tastes like drinking a flat Guinness with cherry gummies in your mouth. On second thought, it’s not that good.

Tap at tap house Munich. Light roast and fruity nose. Black, big brown, slightly reddish head. Light chocolate roast under cherries. Falls flat after that, no chewy follow through , no dry spiciness. Ok chocolate cherries in the aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark black with tan frothy slightly lacing head. Aroma is faintly roasted with hints of chocolate and a bit of cherry. The body is quite weak, moderately sweet, with an oily finish and no tartness at the finish. Other cherry stouts are definitely better

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle. No head. Light roast aroma but I couldn’t pick up the cherry in the aroma. Bland cherry flavor.
