UPDATED: DEC 6, 2011 On Tap at BarVolo. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma of dark malt, syrup and coffee, not too much cherry. flavour is syrup and dark chocolate with muted cherry flavour. somewhat tart. watery mouth-feel. Felt that the cherry flavour was interesting but not all that well integrated. Meanwhile body was pretty light and watery.

Very dark brown with a foamy half inch of tan bubbles. Rich roasted malt and a hint of cherry. Sweet roasted malt flavors mingle with mildly sweet cherry juice. Somewhat like eating a dark black forest cake. Seems quite simple, but no real flaws. Thanks jerc.

A dark brown pour with hints of red around the rim. Off white head and lace. Cherries chocolate and sour dominate the nose. Coffee, lite cherries and a medium bitter dominate the flavor. A tad foamy and thin. Drinkable with a decent bitter. pretty good beer.

Thanks to decatursteveo for another one! Thin off-white head over a dark black body.Chocolate malt aroma / cocoa powder. The chocolate is well done, the cherry comes in a s sourness in the finish. Thin bodied. O.K.?

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.
