Draft. Looks like a stout, tastes like a cherry cordial. Lightly sour, quite sweet. Hard to drink more than a few sips but glad I tried it.

djd07 (2915) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2014
On tap at Epic Taproom in Denver. Pours a dark brown and ruby hue with thick beige head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong dark chocolate, oak, funk, and cherry skin. Thin mouthfeel with nice coffee bean and dark chocolate with nice tart cherry coming through, really balanced between the stout and kriek, really glad I got to try this. Amazing.

Anova167 (267) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Interesting one this. Looks just like a stout. Black pour tan head that sticks around. Huge chocolate nose with the hint of sour fruit. The flavor is like a cherry chocolate bar. Roastier beginning with the fruit and chocolate coming through on the long sweet finish. Lighter body than expected. I like it.

Sikash (230) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Nice funky fruity aroma. I feel like the stout and kriek are flashing for who is the more powerful because oget both those nice roasted chocolate/coffee and the sour fruity kriek. Flavor is nice and smooth with the butter stout on the back end and the kriek up front. Overall a well done beer but don’t think I am a fan if this combo.

Steve_0 (2232) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2014
On tap at the Denver location. Pour is deep, clear, brownish-red with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Big sweet cherries, spice, cocoa, roast, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pie crust in the aroma. Nice! Taste is sweet cherries, chocolate, cinnamon, somewhat tart, coffee, roast, and raspberries. Medium body with medium carbonation. Really cool beer and definitely much more Kriek, than Baptist (which I think was the right move). Fun stuff.

arminjewell (5717) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Pour on tap at Black Bottle, dark reddish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of roast, dark chocolate, coffee, slight berry, cherry notes, hints of dark fruits as well, slight dark caramel. Taste is a mix of cherry, dark berry, dark fruit, hints of cocoa, chocolate, roast, finishing fairly sweet. Interesting, but they didn’t quite blend as I thought they might. Still tasty.

dansac (70) - Loa Angeles, USA - FEB 10, 2014
This is a very tasty, unique beer. Very sweet, lots of coffee, burnt caramel, and black malts. Sweetness from the cherries, a bit of sourness in the back. Lots of chocolate and coffee. It’s really almost a desert beer; very tasty and decadent.

Barreras (849) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Pours a dark brown color with a tan head lacing. Aroma is mild coco and sour grapes. Taste is light for a stout with the sourness as the prevailing taste. Apple juice mixed with beer is my best example. Overall okay, but not my style.

brokensail (9938) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 27, 2014
On tap @ Beachwood BBQ. Dark brown, nearing black, with ruby hues and an off-white head. Sweet cherry pie and jam along with vanilla, bourbon, and fudge. Muted coffee in there as well. Flavor is fairly sweet and sugary. Lots of fudge and cherry pie. There’s quite a bit of vanilla, some bourbon, oak, and a touch of coffee. Maybe a bit of maple syrup. Wasn’t expecting much from this, but not bad.

onceblind (3673) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Heavy dark brown with a clear tone of ruby highlights, under a sticky thin light tan head. Nose has a bit of sticky molasses, roast malt, cherries, and dark bakers cocoa. Flavor starts with a bang with a big cherry kick, some sweet fruity syrup, roast malt, molasses, toast, dark cocoa, more cherries, and a dark malty cherry syrup. Quite delightful.
