Viper666 (2787) - 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.

Pours a inky black with a big almond head that quickly disappears. Aroma of rich roasty malts, sweet chocolate and a hint of cherry. This is what I like about this beer. The cherry isn’t overpowering, in fact you have to look for it. It’s a great sweet stout with roasted malts and dark chocolate bitterness. Then there is a slight sweetness of the cherry that comes in and balances the beer nicely. I’m not a big stout fan but I could drink the hell out of this.

radiomgb (2504) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2008
Dark brown in colour with ruby edges, thin but lingering beige coloured head, good lacing. The aroma had some coffee, chocolate and a very light cherry tartness. The flavour is chocolaty, malty with a light roast, mildly bitter, some black forest cake. Lightly sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, mild carbonation. Finishes with some burnt notes and a chocolate sweetness.

This was pretty good. The chocolate was definitely more prominent then the cherries.

Draught at Volo in Toronto, Ontario.

matt7215 (2265) - 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.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2005
draught. deep black body, tiny mocha head. subtle chocolate, roasted malt aroma. a little bit of cherry peers through, moreso as it warms up. starts out milk chocolatey with a small amount of cherry tartness. finish seemed to be just a little bit on the thin side. A nice surprise from Black Oak.

TheJester (2165) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2010
On tap. Just about black with a small tan head. Caramel, chocolate, and a hint of cherries in the aroma. Flavour is chocolate, sweet & tart cherries, and a little roast. Slightly metallic finish. Thinner than it should be. Good, but I was expecting more intensity. Or something.

piscator34 (2128) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 11, 2007
Bottled sample via gregclow. Black in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, toffee, and mild fruit. Flavors of cherry woodsmoke, caramel, and light roasted malt. Medium bodied. I’d like a bit more body and a bit more malt, but this is a good attempt and quite drinkable.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Bottle thanks to my festivus master: Pours black with a big tan head leaving nice lacing. Aroma, chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, roasted notes, faint cherries in the nose, though they were more apparent when first poured. Flavor, dark chocolate, roasted notes, tart cherry notes on the finish, roasty and ashy bitterness on the tail end. Not bad, but not very sweet.
