Blackness throughout. Very chocolatey and fruity smell. Was very delicious with slight cherry flavor. Not the best I’ve ever had but with very good thanks to my buddy who let me try half of one....He could have gave me a whole one considering he erased my paper on my computer, but hey he gave me a sprecher Irish Stout but whatever.

Tap...haven’t had this in years and I forgot how good this is. Very complex and well balanced with a sweet-tart cherry flavor over roasted malts. Has a fantastic silky bittersweet finish.

12oz bottle pours a black color with a bit of head. Tart cherry prominent, with a mild stout in the back ground. Needs a little time to breathe.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Btl 10/08/13 pours an opaque dark dirty motor oil brown color. Huge,thick,dark tan head that vanishes quickly leaving spots of lace on glass. Smells of chocolate,toffee,caramel, toasty grain,a hint of bitter coffee, with some fruity aromas. Tastes of bittersweet chocolate,sour cherries,toffee,and roasted grains. Medium body, lively carbonation,soft yet viscous mouthfeel, smooth tart finish. Ok I did not like this beer at first. As it warmed up and I consumed more it grew on me. This really is a good stout. I wish I had a six pack. I also would have liked to try it fresh. If they used sweet cherries( Washington/Montana) I bet this would be phenomenal!

Very dark and opaque pour, thin dark tan head with a reddish tinge. Light aroma of coffee, chocolate, and fruit. Aggressively sour taste, light but quite distinct cherry-pruney flavor which is impressively dry. Unsweetened chocolate with faint coffee. Cherry seems natural and particularly unsweetened. Interesting and very unique, I very much enjoyed this beer.

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.

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.
