Spab (2559) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2011
341 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a very dark brown with a slight orange tinge and modest-sized mocha coloured head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and a hint of cherry. Taste is dark roasted malt with coffee and dark chocolate notes accompanied by a subtle sweet cherry flavour. Lingering coffee/chocolate bitterness in finish. Nice.

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 isnít overpowering, in fact you have to look for it. Itís 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. Iím not a big stout fan but I could drink the hell out of this.

radiomgb (2363) - 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.
March 22, 2008.

mds (2240) - 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.

matt7215 (2225) - 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.

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.

fordest (2010) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - SEP 6, 2007
12 oz bottle shared with toncatcher. Nice dark pour with decent tan head. Some Chocolate and cherry on the aromas. Smelled like weak cordial cherries. Flavor fell way off for me though. Flavors were still there, but just didnít hit me the way the aromas did. Funny finish that didnít really seem to belong to this beer.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2009
Bottle sample thanks to Milos- A deep brown pour with a frothy mocha cap. Nose of fresh cherries and dark chocolate, coffee, some roasted malts. Tastes sweet, of dark chocolate with some anise and pit fruits. FInishes with bitter coffee/chocolate and a pleasing cherry aftertaste. Very good.
