3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler from Brewed in Fort Worth. Pours dark brown with a small, beige head. Aroma of earth, dark rye bread, slight cherry, dark chocolate, coffee, and toasted nuts. The aroma implies dessert, but this beer is NOT sweet. Flavors of coffee, toast, earth, and slight bittersweet chocolate make appearance. Finishes with a slight cherry hint and an aftertaste that is bitter and earthy, yet slight astringent from the cherries. Begs for a sip of water after a while. Medium-heavy bodied, moderate carbonation, no real alcohol presence. Interesting beer, but I wish the aftertaste was better.

I lived in Japan for a couple years. In the first month I was there I heard a truck go by playing what could only be ice cream jingle music. I hastily put on some shoes, bolted out the door and sprinted down the block while people looked at me like I was crazy. I finally caught up to the truck, all out of breath and sweaty and there were no pictures of ice cream anywhere on it and I could barely speak Japanese and couldnít order. Finally someone who was standing by laughing at me explained that the truck sold kerosene. What kind of sick monsters have a truck that goes around playing music and selling kerosene? DO they want their children to explode. It was the saddest walk home ever.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 41į. Color is black with good carbonation and a thick rocky brown head. Aroma is a deep roasted malt scent with just a faint note of fruit on the back end. It has a medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor of deep roasted coffee that gives a hint of dark chocolate then some dried fruit. As the after taste rolls in the roasted flavors give a mellow bitterness and just a touch of cheery. As it warms a bit the cheery seems to show a little more bring out some sweetness. Overall its a very tasty brew and is well balanced, I just thought the cherry would standout a little more.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
The nose is filled with chocolate with hints of coffee and roasted malts. A deep, dark, brown pour with a tan ring and minimal lacing. The palate is slightly sweet with flavors of chocolate, cherries, hints of medicine and coffee bitterness. Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Overall, I really wanted like this beer, but found it to be wanting in body and the mediciine notes got in the way of my full enjoyment. A double perhaps, but definately not a home run.

Picked up in dallas. Pours dark brown with thin to no tan head. Aroma is chocolate. Not really any cherries. Flavor is rich sweet dark chocolate. Slight cherries but not much. Not quite roasty enough for a Baltic porter. Full bodied and sweet. Decent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Common Table, Dallas - I thought this one was decent - certainly a smooth body and creamy texture - the tart cherries balance the sweetness of the malt and add some depth - the cocoa is not very present, but I donít think it needs to be - the balance of malt sweetness and lightly earthy and tart cherry skins/tannic character is enough to carry this - sure, itís not terribly complex outside of this, but itís still quite enjoyable.

On tap at World of Beer. I hardly get any cherry in the nose or the flavor. Hint of roasted chocolate and malt. Not really much there, but it's a great stout.
