RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2007
On tap at Volo. Loved it! Tasted more like a porter to me. Fairly thin to medium mouthfeel. Not quite what I expected. Taste is bursting with mild chocolate (if you know what I mean), with the cherry kicking in when you breathe out through the nose. Sweet, a little tart and a clean finish with a light bitterness to follow. Pretty nice brew.

DerWeg (1494) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2007
On tap at BeerBistro. Very nice light cocoa notes, hint of roast, really didn’t taste cherry or it was masked in the sweetish ale fruit tones. A stout with a sweet personality, although I assumed the ’cherry’ had nothing to do with what was in it.

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.

DirtyMartini (194) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
i got a lot of cherries in the nose from the initial pour....much less in the flavor. very subtle underneath a very basic sweet/milk stout flavor. nothing special...but not bad either. a nice easy drinking stout.

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.

Beershine (5218) - 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.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2008
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

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2008
Pours a pitch black with an incredible and uncontrollable head. Aroma is chocolate-fudge cookies, but a bit understated. Tastes like chocolate cookie as well, very milky and creamy with a light cocoa rather than roasted character. No hops for miles. Light sourish aftertaste, the cherries are more apparent as it warms, and then it tastes like black forest cake! Light on the carb, but good and thick like a chocolate milkshake. My opinion of this beer improved as I sipped and as it warmed. A thoughtful inclusion by Jerc in our latest trade.

341 ml bottle. Pours black in colour, generous cappuccino coloured head. Roasted malt aroma, with nice roasty malty aroma. Is soft and smooth on the palate. Chocolate and cherry is very mild. Very enjoyable, drinkable stout.
