Aroma is cherry chocolate. Smooth a little acidity but very good. It has a hint of like stale dog poop or something. Looks ideal. Pours black. Amazing dark brown head with a tinge of cherry. Taste is not bad. Large acidic note in the middle takes a lot away. Boozy earthy and bitter. Acidy boozy finish. Maybe a little sweet cherry note in the end. Sits heavy but finish is watery. Overall better than regular imperial biscotti break but not amazing. The hints of cherry are nice and a nice compliment but the base beer is not good enough.

Growler. Black pour with tan head. Sweet chocolate, caramel and biscuit malt aromas. Sweet dark malt and fruit flavors, cherry and sweetness.

Nickls (1847) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle, thanks to my good friend Jared. Jet black with a dark tan head. Vanilla, cake, light chocolate, and some slight roast in the aroma. Flavor is very smooth, with quiet vanilla, chocolate, smoothie sweetness, warming alcohol, and slight bittersweet chocolate in the finish. Medium to heavier velvety body.

ICEatALAMO (938) - Troy, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle. The pour is dark, only a lace of head. The aroma is pure sour cherries. The taste is a little light on taste. A little cough syrup to it. Meh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (1871) - Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle: Jet black with a slowly traversing, fine-bubbled cappuccino foam that lasts for a pleasingly sufficient amount of time on top. Milk chocolate, brown sugar, semisweet dark fruit aroma with a vortex of deep black cherry & toasted nuttiness that lends to a slight amaretto vibe on the nose, pretty nice. Big Belgian chocolate taste up front, dark cocoa, semisweet with sprinkles of brown sugar & musty black cherry skins. Dash of tartness, but mostly sweet. A touch astringent. Roasted, nutty & dry coffee bean finish with a bit of lingering cherry juice on the palate. Sharper, lighter mouth feel than Imperial Biscotti Break. Not as good as the rest of the series, but a tasty "fruited" porter nonetheless.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bomber via PUB’R. Pours thick black with less head than your ex-wife and a nose of huge tart cherry, cacao, lactose. Tastes of bready malt, cacao, lactic acid, with chocolate milk. . Finishes cloying, sweet, and terrible.

jzzbassman (1516) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bomber. Pours dark brown with a lasting tan head. Aroma shows cherry and chocolate, and burnt toast. Flavor surprisingly does not show the cherry, more dark chocolate. Finishes bitter and chocolatey.

22 oz bottle shared by huhzubendah, thanks Matt! Pours a translucent nearly black with light barely passing as focused burgundy hues on the glass. Aroma is chocolate covered cherries with slight cinnamon in the background, with roasted malts and cocoa present as well. Flavor is roasted malt and smoke with black cherries and chocolate. Solid all around, full bodied and moderate carbonation. Alcohol well-masked for a 11.5%.

Huhzubendah (2525) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 13, 2014
The beer is a deep dark brown, nearing black, with an oily beige head that clings to the walls of the snifter. Aromas of roast, chocolate, coffee, cherry, fudge, dark fruit. Less of the biscotti comes through in this version. Cherry character with a robust malt profile. Thick and rich with a healthy amount of chocolate. Cherry sweetness with chocolates, like a gourmet candy bar. Not up to the level of Imperial Biscotti Break. Still, tasty.

Bottle during RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting at Schlafly Tap Room. Black with brown hues and a tan head. Aromas of roast, light cherries, chocolate. Tastes of dark chocolate, tart cherries, dark fruit, roast. Full body with a dry finish.
