PorterPounder (5346) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Stockbridge, Ga.- Eagles Landing Bottle Shop - 22 oz bomber. Inky black, viscous pour with a thickish mocha colored head. Aroma brings out some very faint cherry accents, a hint of bittersweet chocolate. Flavor is not very pronounced considering all that it purports to be. Very faint vanilla, a brief hint of cherries and some baker’s unsweetened chocolate. Plenty of earthy topsoil in the back end. Mouthfeel is decently thick. Enjoyable, but expected more flavor

22oz bottle. Very dark pour, black color. Dark brown foam. Aroma of tart cherry, sweet chocolate. Bitter chocolate, tart cherry, decent fruit. Very creamy texture. Almost finishes with notes of a black cherry soda, only much more dry. (4103)

chinchill (1617) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Despite the appealing mix of ingredients, this does not smell or taste particularly good. Rather artificial cherry flavor; milk chocolate. Lightly sweet with both sour and bitter components. Feel: smooth medium-full body with lively (a tad high) carbonation.

Cybercat (3200) - Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2014
If you get a bottle, open with care - my sample rivaled Old Faithful when I popped off the cap! When it settles down, it’s a rich coffee brown with a very thick tan head. Smoky malt aroma has overtones of chocolate and cherry - gee, I wonder why, tee hee. Flavor has a core of roast malt that supports chocolate, cherry, and subtle coffee notes. Firm, smooth texture has some good fizz so it goes down the hatch well. Definitely not "boar"-ing!

Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours an opaque dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma of roasted malts with a fruity hint. Taste of fruit up front that fades into a nice roastiness.

jbruner (2138) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a deep brownish black with minimal tan head. Aroma is big on the chocolate with a hint of sweet vanilla. Taste follows, I wouldn’t have guessed cherries if it wasn’t on the label, but there is some fruitiness that could be yeast. Not bad, a bit thin.

Mora2000 (5530) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Black pour with a tan head. The aroma is very heavy on the chocolate. The flavor is the same, but I also get a bit of vanilla with some tart cherries. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
