Bottle to glass. Probably a year or two old. Pours a deep brown color with a tan head. Aroma is toasted malts, light chocolate covered cherry. Completely different aroma than the base beer! Flavor has a solid porter character to it, with just a touch of cherry. Probably my least favorite of the bunch, but still a solid porter nonetheless.

Again murky dark brown, nice ruby glint and a frothier sandy ringed head and no lacing. Nose is greasy, fleshy fruit and well dug tarry malt. Initial taste is smooth, keen fruit scalping and no notes of ABV or the heavy duty maltiness. Smoke, greasy, light cola and mouthfeel again greasy. Finishes a swirl of lean peppery sweetness and linger is peppery and a wink of the ABV.

umich03jm (2764) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle. Great aroma of chocolate covered cherries and sugary glaze. Tastes like dry cocoa, cherry skins, and caramel. Regular biscotti is better.

SG111 (572) - New York, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Bottled. No clear date. Pours black with almost no head (small tan ring). Aroma is chocolate covered cherries, roasted malts, slight sour tart note. Flavor is roasted malts, slightly sour cherries, very sweet chocolate and fruit. The fruit is not overwhelming. It’s subtle and pleasant. Pretty solid.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate and coffee notes, hints of cherries, some light spices, and some hints of bitterness. Flavor the same with a great blend, but I think the cherries really take away from it. Smooth texture. A good beer.

Pours black with brown head. Medium body. Sour cherries, caramel, dark chocolate, salty flavor. Lots of bitterness from chocolate and cherries. Not as good as the imperial biscotti break bit still good.
