Not a bad beer. Ok stout. Where is the sour cherry flavor. If I was given this blind folded, no way would have thought sour cherry. It was a good stout , but you could get better .

Ale Alpharetta December Meeting. Not sure that I have liked any cherry imperial stouts that I have had. This one is not an exception. Nose of molasses, roasted malts, touch of cherry juice, dark chocolate. Taste does not show that much sour cherry. More of a sherry/cherry note but not sour per se. Same roast, chocolate, molasses. Just not a big fan of cherry stouts I am starting to learn.

Pours a dark brown with a voluminous off white head. Aroma is complex with roasted malt, dark stone fruit, and cherry. Moderately sweet flavor with a tart short lasting finish. Overall great stout for the winter.

Black with tan head. Aroma is malty with coffee and cocoa notes with a bit of tartness. Taste is extremely smooth and well rounded. There is a slight sourness to it that compliments the the darker flavors.

The aroma has some chocolate and coffee and a hint of cherry. The flavor has the same with the cherry more noticeable. I like the cherry but the base of the beer is a bit weak for an Imperial.

Had a glass on tap as part of a sampler at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor. Definitely not much sour or cherry, but this is delicious and decadant.
