2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pitch black head with brown/tan head. Smell of tart cherries, maybe slight chocolate? but that may be my mind playing tricks on me by itís appearance. Taste is tart cherries, and smoke. This was a lot more sour/tart than i was expecting. Slight chocolate taste. Mouthfeel is way too watery for a stout for me. This was the them most disappointing aspect of this brew for me. Overall, itís interesting, but i would pass on it next time around.

Probably the worst idea of a beer bells has had. The smell was good but the bitter cherry did not pair well. Pretty dry for a fruit stout.

Bottle. Pours opaque black, small brown head, dissipates fairly slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, tobacco, light cherries. Flavor is light sweet, light tart, light bitter. Medium body, light acidity. Very subdued cherry. Meh

Tap at Engine 15 brewery bar, Jacksonville. Pours deep dark brown/black with a slightly off white head. Nice choc cherry aroma. Lots of fresh cherry that offer a nice sour edge then choc and coffee - does what it should do. Tasty.

Looked like a stout that I would really enjoy. Cherries are overdone and add to much tartness for my taste. A well-crafted beer that just didnít pull through for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has malt, chocolate and maybe some cherry extract in the mix.
Appearance- The beer is brown with a moderate tan head.
Taste- I can taste the cherry, chocolate and malt, it has a nice flavor.
Palate- This is a medium bodied, medium carbonated brew. It has a slightly oily texture to it.
Overall- This is a pretty good beer, but hey, it comes from "Bellís" so the expectations are always high.

Dark pour with some tan head. Cherry, sweet and roasted malt aromas. Flavors are dark Cherry, I would say a touch too thin to call it a stout.

Pours black. Nose is coffee, roasted malts. Taste is where the cherry comes out, a lot of fresh tart cherrys, sweet dark malts, chocolate. Kinda syrupy. Very good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jet black pour usual minimal stout head. Aroma burnt dark roast sour cherry perhaps. Smooth as silk no real coffee or stout bitterness. The cherry hits you as a cherry liquor mid sip and warms you than gone. Strange interesting brew. Did like the java better. Nice though
