pushkinwow (2006) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
On tap at the Atomic Rooster. Nice mahogany with some beige head. Definite cherry but happy that its not the cough syrup variety, maybe because of the relatively low ABV, some roasted malt with a bit of bittersweet chocolate. Moderate carbonation and mild+ body, easy to drink and not overwhelming, semi malty finish with a bit more cherry.

solidfunk (3997) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Pours cloudy dark without any head or lacing. Aroma of cherry with some bitter chocolate. Average carbonation. Components don’t come together super well. Finishes bitter with light sour note. Tap at Wellington Gastropub.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2013
355 ml bottle from the brewery, thanks to Jason. Pours deep brown, almost black. Tan head, which quickly dissipates. Some chocolately malt flavour and cherry. NOt bad.

beanmedic (347) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Dark brown. Had to struggle to pick out a bit of sour cherry in the nose. Weak aroma of roasty malt, sweetness, coffee, chocolate. Body is medium. taste of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Finish is short.

Canmoore (256) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2012
On tap at the Rochester pub. This beer pours a nearly opaque ruby red colour with a thick robust head, and impeccable lacing. The beer has a big malt caramel smell to it. Upon tasting it the first thing I notice is the tartness from the cherries, however the cherry flavour is not overpowering. There are notes of chocolate as well, giving the beer almost a black forest cake like taste to it. As the beer warms up, you can taste notes of coffee and caramel. The beer has a satisfying dry finish, probably due to the tartness of the cherries. I can definitely drink a lot of this beer! Well done Barley Days!

AGAquino (659) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
From notes. Pours a cloudy dark brown, with a nice foamy head. Aroma of toasted malts and chocolate covered cherries. Flavours of sweet chocolate, black cherries and slight floral notes.

Ontbeertaster (2338) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle, pours a nice dark black, light head, aroma is roasty and the flavour is so as well, it is a little sweet from the cherry, but overall it is quite tasty

BreWedge (313) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
341 ml bottle. Deep brown appearance bordering on opaque. Very thick mocha colored head. Mild cherry, nut, and chocolate aromas. Cherry flavour dominant with a light-medium bitterness. Medium body with an oily texture. Long finish with bitter cherry.

piscator34 (1965) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 31, 2012
Bottled sample via BreWedge. Dark brown in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Lots of chocolate fudge notes on the nose, backed by some subtle cherry. More chocolate and cherry notes in the mouth, but in a more balanced way. Some savory herbs and earth elements come in on the back end. Light to medium bodied, with a tart cherry finish. Not bad, but the light mouthfeel was a bit of a letdown.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2011
Dark brown with a decent-sized, cream head. Aroma is faint, cocoa and malt - no noticeable cherry. Taste-wise, there is some coffee and a bit of cherry, but the taste is weak. Some bitterness on the finish. Overall, I think this needs to be bumped up a notch in the cherry aroma/taste.
