Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2008
Bottle courtesy of hogtownharry. Pours muddy brown with a tan head. Smells of light cherries, some sweet malt. Tastes of artificial sweet cherries, some cocoa, some earthiness. T was hoping for some more intensity from the cherries, but this is nice. Some caramel on the finish.

12 oz. bottle - thanks to matt7215 for the trade; pours thin and brownish black with no head; aromas of roasted malts, nuts and chocolate; cherry addition comes off on the minor end in both aromas and flavors; they do are a slight tartness to the aftertaste; flavors are mostly nuts and chocolate

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2008
bottle shared by thecheeseman: pours a good black colour with a small tan head. aroma is a cocoa powder not much else no cherry. flavour is pretty much cocoa powder and not much else going on for me. the cherry is defently missing the cheery.

Beershine (5213) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2008
Bottle, thanks to Oakes. Dark black-brown-red with aromas of Black Forest Cake. Soft body, nice cakey flavors. Good stuff, they either nailed it or named it well.

Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2008
On tap at Beer Bistro in Toronto. From memory as I had this a few months ago. I was disappointed with the lack of flavour and body. Faint aroma of chocolate. Black with tan head. Flavour was cherry chocolate but not as intense as I was hoping, not very rich and not much body.

JesseM (1147) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2008
An incredibly solid and delicious stout. The cherry elements only really shine through on the nose (especially once the glass is empty for some odd reason), and in the aftertaste (more like the after, after taste). The mouth-feel is awesome, in fact only slightly lighter in body than the John By Imperial Stout IMHO. And ever so drinkable! This stuff just goes down way too easy. It’s basically liquid chocolate with a kick to it.

pootzboy (1578) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 29, 2008
Poures a dead black in the tulip...decent mocha cap reduces quickly but laces well...low cabonation Aromas are plenty and complex, cocoa, roasted and roasted grains, fruit,hay and a light mustiness. Medium bodied for a stout, large dose of the cocoa and roast in the front then a rush a tart berry tastes and some spicy hopping...longish wet finish with light sweetness and some char. Excellent specialty porter that is very drinkable.

matt7215 (2161) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2008
341 ml bottle. pours black/dark brown. very little head that is quickly gone. some mild levels of carbonation. aromas are dark chocolate and cherries. flavours are initially bitter with soothing chocolate coming through near the end. no cherry in the flavour. a bit thin but this brew gets considerably better as it warms. a very drinkable stout.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2008
Bouteille 341ml, courtoisie de Blankboy. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti, de chocolat noir, moyen de café mocha, légèrement fruité (cerises) et avec des notes de houblon herbeux et de vanille. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture moyennement crémeuse, légèrement huileuse et aqueuse. Goût légèrement fruité aux notes acides (moyen de cerises) avec des traces de vanille et de crème lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût moyennement amer de malt assez rôti (notes brûlées) et de chocolat noir puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût de houblon herbeux et de café espresso accompagné de petites notes métalliques. Post-goût moyen-long, moyennement amer de rôti, moyen de café et de chocolat noir, légèrement aigre de fruits (cerises) avec de faibles notes métalliques et des traces de fumée de bois.
