4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge thanks to hoppymeal for getting this one off my wants list. Pours dark red-brown with an off-white head. Nose is bourbon, booze, cherry, vanilla, tartness, and some roasty malt. Flavor is roasted malts, cherry tartness, vanilla, booze, bourbon, and sweetness. Medium-bodied and very enjoyable.Not as bourbony as Bellís BB Cherry, and not as tart as a regular cherry stout. Very nice, interesting beer.

Pretty nice stout body with a hint of tart cherry in the finish, overall pretty smooth and a little thin bodied.

12 oz bottle from TODD. THANKS!
A: Pure black with a fizzy dying cappuccino head.
N: Ample bourbon, caramel, and vanilla. Touch of the dark cherry and ample malt. Hints of sweet chocolate.
T: Lots of oak and ample sweetness. Touch of tartness from the cherries. A touch light.
M: Medium body thatís slightly watery. Doesnít have much texture.
O: Perfectly average. Has a few flavors, but itís certainly not overflowing with goodness. Getting close to a sour stout.

Pours black with a light tan head
Smell bourbon and deep red fruit.
Taste lots of cherry up front and in the middle, lots of roast in the middle and a bunch of oak, bourbon and vanilla in the tail.
Lighter bodied than I would think. Smooth. Better than the straight bourbon.
Pours lighter, almost cola colored, small fizzy head.
Smell is lighter faded oak and a bit of roast.
Taste is still delicious red fruit, cherry, ashy towards the middle, and red fruit again on the end.
Even thinner than 2013.

Bottle shared by Fonefan at his place. Dark brown color with a reddish glare coming through, small beige head. Smell malts, a bit woody and lightly fruity. Taste malts, lightly woody, some grapepeel sour-bitterness and dry.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is opaque dark brown/nearly black, with a huge, off-white and quickly disappearing head.
Aroma is actually, to me, weird.. Roasted malts, roasted coffee beans, slight chocolate, slight bourbon and vanilla notes, and then a huge bomb of cherry, slight wild berries and slight tart follows. I know it says cherry stout on the label, but nothing could prepare me for these somewhat immense cherry notes..
The flavor is classic stoutish sweet up-front, with a lot of fruity sweetness, with slight roasted bitter notes towards the end..
Actually, this beers has a rather watery body, with a semi-flat carbonation..
Thanks to Matt for giving me this..

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown-black body, thin tan head, minimal lacing. Cherries, bourbon, roasted malts, warmed chocolate. Medium bodied, cola-like carbonation and finish which could use a little bit more weight.

I hate how donít list the alcohol on the label, but this is definitely a big boy. The cherry sourness is nice, but the booze is overwhelming. Nice bourbon.

12 ounce bottle. Has an attached sticker saying Bourbon Cherry Stout. Pours a dark black color with a small brown head. A big bourbon nose with some sweet perfume and butter. The flavor is cherry, big bourbon, vanilla, again a light buttery note, some sweet malty flavor, light cocoa. Pretty nice. Very sweet.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown. Smells a roasty fruity character. Cherry comes through nicely. Somewhat tart, but not sour. Good stuff.
