Black, creamy tan head. Aroma of mild cherry tartness, smoke, roast malt. Taste is also kind of burnt with some cherry tartness. Better than expected. Medium body, soft carbonation.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2010 12 oz bottle. Aroma has red cherry with chocolate and a little roastiness and cream. Fruit comes in the flavor across more like black cherry or raisin, cinnamon even, with some cocoa, roastiness, and black licorice. The stout part of the beer is a bit thin, but the cherry part is rather interesting.

Atwater the fizzy beers. Much has bee said about this characteristic, so, pour cautiously. The head remained throughout the drink which lasted for more than - fill in the blank and was about half an inch to the end. The aroma is coffee with a hint of cherry and cholcolate as is the taste. Atwaters have big noses to use a wine term. The appearance is opaque brown. Lacing is clouds that remain. The aftertaste is mildly bitter. I liked it. However, I am tired of having to be aware that Atwater brews need vigilante monitoring when poured. Since I bought this some months ago, I have not seen the Atwater selections in Massachusetts.

zizzybalubba (1380) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Siciliano’s Market in Grand Rapids, MI. Dark brown, nearly black, pour with an enormous foamy khaki head. Aroma of light smoke, roasted coffee, and just a hint of cherry juice. Sour cherries can be detected in the flavor as well as some dark chocolate and smoke but none of the flavors are as big and bold as I would have liked.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2010
Draught, 5.9% as Atwater Cherry Porter. Malty aroma, not that roasted, but slightly fruity. Almost black colour, seems hazy. Looks like prune juice when the glass is almost empty. Almost no head. The flavour has a good cherry, raisin and cinnamon combination. There is a little tartness from the cherries, like good sour ones. The cherry is a little fat and vulgar, but that works well with the oxidised note.

Beerdedone (2573) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2010
bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of tart cherries, faint chocolate and some roastiness. Flavor was sweet and tart black cherries, chocolate, light coffee and some roast with a thin body and had a dry tart finish.

Warning: This tasting was conducted at an earlier date and time, but the results were recorded in a ’notebook’. What follows is an interpretative commentary based on the notes. The reconstituted review is as follows: Bad cough syrup.

12 oz bottle. This beer was very amaturish. Taste was very thrown together like. The mediocre stout flavor and the terrible cherry syrup flavor really didn’t blend together well at all. Some thin and watery body as well. Drainpour.

scottw86 (1089) - Maryland, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Poured black with an off-white head. The aroma is not very good. The cherry smell and the chocolate malts do not mix well. Taste is a syrupy sweet grossness. Cherry flavors don’t work well in this. Some chocolate malts and vanilla, but the cherry doesn’t mix. Aftertaste is pretty bad, a slightly sour cherry taste. Points for creativity, but this didn’t work very well.

arone12 (919) - Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Pours a black color with a light brown small head. Smells of cherry, alcohol, and malts. Tasty aroma. Taste is very much rich with cherries. Slight bitterness to this beer with some malts mixed in there. Cherry taste is very over powering
