This unique ale begins its life as a powerful and richly sweet stout to which Michigan tart cherries are added. The resulting black brew is complex, sweet and tart with a distinct cherry finish. It will improve with cellaring. Available September - May

In the glass it has an extreme darkness with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa and some cherries. The taste has some tartness with cherries along with some chocolate and more roasted malts. Medium finish.

From a bottle. Pours a thick, dark brown and makes a thin brown head. Very syrupy. Lots of microbubbles are visible when swirling the glass. Not much lacing, though. Aroma is of cocoa and Bing cherry and vanilla. Tastes of malt, cherries, and chocolate. Not too much alcohol and not too viscous mouthfeel. I like this stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Beers of the World, Henrietta. Musty cherry and roasty aroma. Sour cherry and molasses taste. Mildly bitter finish. Not bad.

klaing (265) - Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Pours dark with foamy head which quickly dissolves cherry evident from the start underpinned by chocolaty malts. Not too sweet. Thin mouthfeel for a stout, but liked it more than I thought I would. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cherries are present throughout, jousting in a slightly medicinal way with chocolate in the aroma and taking over the sour, smoky finish. Beautiful to look at, with mounds of burgundy-red foam that calmly subsides. This was a fresh bottle, consumed about two months after the bottling date in November 2015.

MarcoDL (3876) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of PotjeBier. Aroma of roasted malt, mild cherry and sweet chocolate. Taste has mild smooth cherry, choco, mild roast and some subtle tart that could be from the cherry core. Nice one.

caesar (6482) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle thanks to Potjebier, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of lots of roast, dark bread, some coffee and dark chocolate, not much cherry, maybe some cherry pits. In taste roasty bitterness, dark bread, coffee. Bit dry. Slight fruity cherry. I expected a bit more cherry, got lots of roast in return. Tasty though.

12 oz bottle @ home, shared with MarcodL, borresteijn & caesar. Black color. Brown head, quickly receding. Aroma’s: heavy roast, soy sauce, dark chocolate. Retronasal it’s sourish, roasted, sour cherries. Flavor is moderate sweet, some cherry, roast, hint of sourness. Medium bodied. Finishes slightly dry. cherry-ish. Quite unconventional.
