Bottle - Vintage 2008 - Cocoa powder. Muddy brown with with a thin brown head. Roasted malts with a bit of sourness and cocoa. Light body and a surprisingly sessionable. Great beer at this age.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of very bitter chocolate with some roasted malt and a bit of cherry. The flavor is bitter cocoa, chocolate and roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap at Milos’. I was quite disappointed by this beer. The obvious comparison for me was to the Muskoka Winter Beard Double Chocolate Cranberry Stout. Obviously different fruits involved, and this was always going to be sweeter compared to the cranberry tart and bitterness, still, what made the Muskoka really great is what Black Oak was missing. The body felt way too thin and the taste reflected that. There was definitely some interesting stuff happening there, but it all sort of fizzed away into a bit of a watery mess. Looked great, had an okay aroma, but really lacked the punch that it seemed to promise, especially having liked their Nutcracker Porter.

From notes – on tap at Bar Volo. Pours a dark brown colour with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet dark malts, coffee and some cherry. Flavour is sweet dark chocolate syrup with nuanced cherries.

Damico (2562) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours unclear dark coffee in color with a light cocoa head. The aroma is my favorite part, strong notes of cherry juice with some chocolate roastiness in the background. You get a bit of the cherry juice, roasted malts, and chocolate on the tongue too, but lighter in body as is for s single sweet stout.

Opaque black beer. Nose of chocolate and wood. Light palate. Dark malt. Wood comes through loud and clear. Light unsweet chocolate with fairly subtle but sour cherry. Finishes dry. The name sounds promising, the beer is a bit of a let down. Okay but nothing special.

Bottle from Brewery. Nice roasty chocolate aroma. Roasty chocolate taste with sour cherries. Pretty good.

Listigovers (293) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
Strong coffee and chocolate aroma. Nice. Pure black sith llingering tan head. Tingling bitter palate. Long lasting bitter roasted flavours with a very slight hint of fruit. Very good.

solidfunk (3896) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 3, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 smells a little like cherry, a little like coffee, though the latter is much more prevalent. Palate cimes off a little thin, not a huge body here. Pours black with big head that dies down quick. On tap at volos
