Draft at The Bier Stein, Eugene. Pours a medium-dark brown, decent amount of tan head. Aroma slightly roasty, subtle. Body full and boozy, some hints of cherry, dark chocolate on finish. Meh.

Wowie, this is an awesome porter! Fairly certain it is a seasonal/limited release so if you see it around I would suggest snagging some if you’re a fan of the style. She pours a pretty dark brown with ruby hints and a thin tan head. Aroma and taste are about the same which is a great thing since they are both wicked. I have had porters and stouts with these or similar flavour combos and they end up being to sickly sweet and tasting pretty artificial. BBC does it night and subtlely without losing the promised flavours. No cough-syrup cherry business here! Smooth and slick liquid best slurped after it has been left at room temperature for awhile, I found it brought out more flavours. Dig it.

Picked up a bottle at Belmont in December 2012, drank a week ago. Pours big and bold, black as night with a slight reddish hue. Not much of a head. Smells of soured cherrys and bits of burnt malts. Flavor is heavy, thick, and full of dark roasted malts, but sweetened sourly with odd chocolates and sour cherries. Thick!

I thought there was too much going on in the beer. It had a few off flavors. Good color.

Bottle shared by Jeff, thanks! Pours a dark brown/black color with a medium tan head. The aroma is sweet cocoa and cherries. The flavor is light roast and chocolates with lots of sour and sweet cherries. A bit candy like at times. Enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Belmont. Pours a lightly murky walnut brown with small tight khaki head. Cherries, roasted nuts, light coffee, leather, sweet dark chocolate backing. Full creamy body feel with just enough carbonation to add to the ceeaminess. Roasted malt with a light nutty tone up front, moves into sweet bourbon vanilla, then picks up chocolate covered cherries. Smooth and desert like.
