Best beer I sampled on my brewery tours at my Stag night. Pours a dark black. Great chocolatey roasted malts, light yet creamy body. Just a hint of cherris, which is just perfect.

On tap at Volo. On tap at Volo. Poured a fairly solid black with smallish head. Fairly thin to medium mouthfeel. Taste is mild chocolate, cherry and slighty cloying sweetness. Clean finish with a light bitterness. Pretty good.

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.

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.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2006
A strange combo of flavours indeed. The chocolate and malts were not as noticeable as the sour cherry juice leaching underneath the concoction. Nothing like Black Forest cake, more like artificial chocolate mousse mixed with a coulis. Not unpleasant, but doesnít quite work -- didnít help that this tapped beer had no body whatsoever. Worth a rerate someday.

Sammy (8912) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2007
This fresh LCBO bottle is courtesy of Pootz. Pours black, with some chocolate and cherry aroma. A chocolately smoothd rinking stout, with one flaw of burnt edges. A minority of geeks will really like that, but most people while really liking the chocolate will be repelled by the burned tar characteristic,

piscator34 (1995) - 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. Iíd like a bit more body and a bit more malt, but this is a good attempt and quite drinkable.

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.

On tap at the Toronto Beerlicious fest. Deep black, with a light cherry flavor, medium sweetness, and chocolate. Very mild in flavor for a stout--light bitterness. Nice.

TheJester (1958) - 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.
