On tap at The Beer Store Wilson. Black hue, zero visibility with mostly lasting caramel head. Heavy malt, chocolate & alcohol on the nose. Chocolate and some dark fruit up front with some smoke & coffee on the finish. I was looking for the sour cherry but didn’t find it. Oily on the palate. Was an okay stout.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Dark brown pour with a frothy khaki head. Aroma of smoke, dark chocolate, and faint dark fruit. Flavor is good with espresso and chocolate, smoky malts, and just a touch of cherry on the finish. Honestly, I barely tasted the cherry until about the 3rd sip but it is indeed there. This one grows on me after a while and is quite enjoyable. I have tried a few mediocre offerings from Blue Point but this is not one of them. Nice beer.

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.

Black pour. Small tan head. Plenty of lacing. Fruity bread aroma. Stone fruit. Taste is a toasted grain and slight sour cherry. Pretty good.
