2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 donít think I am a fan if this combo.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 didnít quite blend as I thought they might. Still tasty.

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. Itís really almost a desert beer; very tasty and decadent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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. Thereís quite a bit of vanilla, some bourbon, oak, and a touch of coffee. Maybe a bit of maple syrup. Wasnít expecting much from this, but not bad.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer has a Jekyll and Hyde temperament. Pours a dark black. Bit of a coffee aroma. And then you taste and you get a strong amount of sweet pie cherry taste. The coffee and roast is all aroma and only a tiny bit of flavor. File this under interesting experiment.
