Thanks to thickfreakness for this bottle! Shared with MaltOMeal and thickfreakness. Batch #7777. Pours a black color with a cherry mocha head. Nose is ripe cherry pits...very wine like with some alcohol, but honestly, not much bourbon. Flavor is black cherry cola and slight bourbon oak, but no real strong bourbon notes. Woody. Jammy, and a bit of funk. Full bodied with a nice fizzy carbonation. Very interesting and unique beer, but wasnít blown away. Thanks for sharing Charles!

Nice dark black pour with a thin tan creamy brown head. Smell is big bourbon and a touch of cherries and roasted malt - almost buttery in the smell. Flavor is bourbon, cherries, oak, and a touch of vanilla. It has a medium body that isnt thick or creamy but works well here.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2008 Courtesy JMFG!!!! Pours an insanely opaque black. Aroma is amazing. Notes of vanilla, oak, cherry, roasted malt, coffee and butter cream. Flavor is incredibly mellow. The cherry note comes through on the end, with an almost pipe tobacco quality.

bottle, thanks to miketd To the shock of no one, it’s a dark brown/black pour w/ a cocoa colored head. Very tasty, the bourbon/vanilla/oak pairs very nicely with the tart cherry flavor. Notes of chocolate are also in the nose. Definitely would like to have this one again.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2010 Batch #7777 - Rerate of 7/2008 rating. Just pulled a bottle out of the cellar. Wow after 36 months this has aged nicely. Ridiculously huge bourbon aroma followed by intense tart chocolate cherry flavor. Iíve never held on to something this long. Simply amazing. Iím actually in awe. One more bottle left from orginal. ORIGINAL rating - Pours black with a dark brown head. Strong tart cherry flavor balanced out with hints of chocolate and coffee. Lots of carbonation for a stout, but it works well and gives it a unique feel when it goes against the natural creamy flavor of the stout. Very well done beer. Look forward to finding this one again.

hopscotch (9517) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours black with a small, creamy, beige head. Great retention. Earthy, fruity nose. Acidic cherries, bourbon, vanilla, coffee and mild chocolate. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is acidic, but balanced nicely. Cherry and bourbon tartness; oaken earthiness; coffee ground and charcoal bitterness and chocolate malt sweetness... thoughtfully melded together. Tangy, lightly bitter, toasted finish. This world class beer was provided by scubarex!

BTW 17thfloor, that bottle was for you. 12oz bottle straight from bells. Opaque back with thick medium burnt brown head. Aroma is bourbon, big cherry from both the barrel and base beer, alc, big roasted malt, dark chocolate, sweet but well balanced. Big cherry and chocolate flavor, dark fruit, alc but not harsh, infact barrel is really well balanced with the cherry stout, biggest flavor to me is milk chocolate covered raisins, sweet roasted malt as well. Medium to full creamy body. An excelent beer that tastes amazing now but will improve with age as well.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Sampled at Bockyhorsey’s Bocky Bash on 7-5-08. Pours a deep black with a big foamy tan head. Aroma of wood and cherries with a touch of chocolate and funkiness. Flavor of roasted malt and chocolate with a big cherry bourbon finish. Absolutely fantastic. Like a giant dark chocolate covered cherry exploding in your mouth.
