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.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is very sweet, brown sugar, chocolate. Taste is insanely sweet, lots going on but can’t get past how sweet it is. Too much for me.

wedgie9 (2528) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours completely oily black with an average tan head that leaves thin, spotty lace. The nose is dark chocolate syrup, herbal black tea, a touch fruity, and some freshly roasted coffee. The flavor is more molasses and dusty with the herbal black tea, coffee, and very light cherry. The body is full with very little (if any) carbonation and a long dark chocolate and molasses finish.

jackl (6100) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Sample @ RBWG Grand Tasting. Deep brown pour with a small head. Very sweet nose. Loads of chocolate sauce, Hershey’s Syrup. Little else. The taste, as you’d imagine, is pretty sweet. Chocolate, somewhat boozy. Just a hint of roasted malt. Mellow raspberry tartness on the finish. Full body, thick and oily.

Bottle. The pour is a very dark brown. The aroma is nice and sweet, the chocolate and bourbon mix nicely. The taste is really good. Very sweet, but good. I don't get much cherry and certainly nit compared to bourbon county cherry rye which I had right after this. One of the best beers I have had in some time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
