An imperial sweet stout brewed with cherries and cacao nibs, which is then aged in bourbon barrels. This beer is brewed in collaboration with Mikkeller our generous friend from Copenhagen, Denmark. What you have here is a modest attempt to emulate the experience of biting into a chocolate-covered cherry candy. We hope you enjoy it but you never know what you’re gonna get.

Tap. Pours black, brown head that goes away quickly. Nose is big cherres, sweet and tart, some chocolate, some barrel. Taste is huge sweet and tart cherries, saccharine sweetness, some chocolate, smoothness from the barrel but very little bourbon in the taste, even as it warms. Viscous syrupy mouthfeel.

Pours black with light brown head. Roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon and cherry flavors with a hint of coffee. Big sweet chocolate and cherry flavors with bourbon and roasted malts. Full body with minimal carbonation.

Old rate, sweet cherries and dark chocolate, a bit much on the sweetness, not bad.

Bottle. Pours oily black with a hue of red and shows a thin tan head that dissipates fast. Aroma has nice bourbon cherry chocolate faint coffee and marsh mellow. Taste is sweet and warming with nice chocolate bourbon cherry really smooth and awesome. Palate is full oily sticky and warming, but very well hidden. Fucking Awesome!!!

Aroma of chocolate was nice but the flavor was too hot. Couldn’t taste any of the ingredients until the beer warmed up. Then it was hot with a hint chocolate and cherries. Disappointed.

this one definitely needs to warm up before its drunk, as cold you get nowhere near the cherry or cocoa flavors. a great sweet stout worth the hype for the most part.

Pours a rich burnt umber color with a finger of mocha foam. The nose is full of chocolate roast, sweet chocolate, some bourbon barrel notes and a trace of cherry. The palate follows with a big sweet front end that is very chocolate truffle like and fades seamlessly into a cherry pie filling in the late palate. Nice little bourbon and roast notes to add to the complexity, but really just taste like a boozy chocolate covered cherry... so I say very well done !

Wow, this stuff is awesome. Black pour, almost no head. Perfect blend of chocolate cherry and bourbon. By that i mean there is a lot of all 3. Almost chocolate rain levels of chocolate, plus a lot of sweet sugary cherry. Very thick and oily, not quite bcbs levels but close. This stuff is awesome, get some.

Pours jet black, no head. Arab of big roast, chocolate, cherries. Taste is chocolate and roast up front, cherries in the finish, bourbon and vanilla. So complex, so delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
