3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
10/25/2014. From bottle. Bells make some of the best stouts out there, but this is not one of them. The aromas are roasted malt and chocolate. Flavors similar with lots of dark chocolate, but the tart, acidic and almost metallic finish throws it off balance.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a decent beer from Bellís. I will say itís one of their most interesting beers I have ever had from Bellís, but not their best.
Aroma- cherryís, light espresso, and chocolate.
Taste- Very tart up front and lingers throughout, but still has that imperial stout backbone. Itís that if you decent, but not the best from Bellís. I will say if this is your style of beer you will love this.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to beer tulip. Pour is jet black with a one finger beige head that leaves a cap and a bit of lacing. The aroma is strong roasty malt, chocolate, and a hint of cherries. The taste is big roasted malt, sweetness, chocolate, and a big smack of tart cherries. The finish is tart and oily with a nice blend of roast and cherry. A really interesting stout that I couldn't drink a sixes of.

Well done for this up and coming style on the trendometer. Enough balanced roast and tart cherry to do both ends of the equation justice. Finishes tart with a touch of astringency. Big smell of roast and some smoke in finish. Tap at Churchkey.

On first sip this stout has a bit of bitterness with a nice roasted malt flavor. Once your pallet sets in the cherry really starts coming out, itís personally a touch to much for me, I prefer flavors like this to be more suttle.

Little to no head and very thin lacing. Rich chocolate aroma with cherries coming in second. However when tasted the sour cherries come first and the chocolate lingers for the aftertaste. Best cherry stout I have had. Enjoy the sour cherries instead of the sweet which are usually used.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Itís dark and thick with a light tan head. The slowly fades out leaving just a ring of foam at the edge of the glass. Lacing is mostly slick.
Smell: The aroma has a light toasted grain character with hints of almond like nutty notes and cherries.
Taste / Palate: The flavor has a tart cherry roasted maltiness up front. As it warms I get more roasted coffee like malt notes. The finish has a mix of ligjt tartness and bitterness. Carbonation and palate feel right on.
