3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
