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.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Sampled at Bocky Bash on 7-5-08. This beer had a barnyard along with some barrel wood. Black body with tan head. Good cheey fruit flavor, thick sweet body texture. Smooth on the palate with a aftertaste of cherry wood lingering. Good beer.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2008 [ I found this bottle on the shelf ...so I took it... I think it was Davinci’s from xnoxhatex... so thaks guys... hope you don’t mind that I drank it = ). Batch #7777 bottled January of 2007. ] Pours a thinner black with a minimal beige head. Crazy aroma... the cherries really age and mix interestingly with the bourbon barrel. Notes of bourbon, vanilla, black cherries, coffee bean like dryness in the aroma... so unique. I love Bell’s cherry stout... and I love bourbon... man this is good. Sweet tart cherries, bourbon, wood, burnt brown sugar, leather, some soy saltiness, cola, coffee, dark chocolate.... its definitely crass but its good to me. Lighter body than I expected, medium/full with light sparkling carbonation.... ever so slightly syrupy. Really easy drinking too... you could sip it... but I’m having a hard time keeping my glass full.

LinusStick (2817) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Delicious and extremely complex beer courtesy Mr Stitch. Aroma was huge and perfect. Strong bourbon and chocolate with a lot of oak and earth. Pour was also perfect. Near jet black with a nice irredescent amber hue. Taste was huge and full. Strong chocolate, cherry and oak with a strong astringent bitterness in the aftertaste. The cherry flavor is more bitter than sweet which is a plus in my book. Great beer.

SDalkoholic (2135) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Joey @ South Bay Drugs. A special thanks for making my 1,000 rating a memorable beer. This stout pours as a pitch black liquid with a tanned and delicate film of head. My nose is instantly gratified with the underlying aroma of bourbon and dark malt that smells both sweet and deliciously roasted. Texture is an oily and highly carbonated drink yet smooth and easily drinkable. The flavor is slightly tart yet strongly sweet and ranges in flavor from an undeniable black roast malt, wood barrel, bourbon, coffee and a slight notice of cherry that taste authentic. A real special treat to be had.

Had on draft. Pours black. All sorts of stuff going on here, some caramel, rasin, light chocolate. Very dry and clean, the cherry tart at the finish. Very interesting.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2008
(Bottle, courtesy of Mar) Pours an opaque black body with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, cherry, caramel, toffee, chocolate, rum, oak, butterscotch, and coffee. Flavor of sweet cherry, vanilla, bourbon, oak, cocoa, and toffee. The finish is interesting as it dries half of the tongue with the oak and then causes the remainder of the tongue to salivate due to the cherry sweetness.

12oz via Beagle on the Beer Spot. Shared with my gf cyn. Pours a molten black with a nice 1 finger brown head with hints of red. Nose is sweet and malty with big cherry notes. Taste is sweet and malty, and slightly syrupy. The bourbon is there an dso is the cherry, its like cherry bourbon bon bons. A Strange beer indeed.
