2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Great expectations would be a better name for this beer. It looks great dark chocolate colour with a thick creamy head. Aroma of malt and chocolate with a complex taste that disappoints. The palate is extremely phenolic and chemically acidic with a hint of burnt band aids.

The head makes up more than 50% of the glass. Like washing machine sis. Great color. Dark Chocolate malted milk balls aroma. The taste is complex, real acidic palate to it. Interesting beer. Mellows as you go.

Had this at a recent tasting. Nothing really at all memorable about this. Don’t recall any sourness at all.

didnt get much sour, or cherry, and as a stout itself, it was pretty forgettable.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Dark, but thin visual appeal. Head is firm and holding. Chalky, baking chocolate aroma. Bountiful drink ... rich with full chocolate in the background, a nice cherry pie swirl in the front. Good, good stuff. (#5428, 2/7/2014)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
