Growler thanks to Bruce. Pours a dark brown with large creamy tan head that lasts awhile leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is dark chocolate, roast, cherry. Thick mouthfeel with rich chocolate, jammy cherry, sweet finish. Good.

Great aroma of chocolate and sweet cherries. Pours dark brown with a light tan head and low retention. Taste is very mild and blended with the sweetness from the cherries balancing the chocolate bitterness.

Growler thanks to my buddy Eric, Thanks!
Nearly black body, creamy tan head leaves soapy bubbles all over my glass. Aroma of silky milk chocolate erupts from the glass, reminiscent of a top tier stout. Cherries in the back while remaining lactic and roasty; in a word: decadent. FB's aromas do not disappoint.
Taste brings the above flavors together seamlessly with a creamy, semi-sweet complexion. Black cherries yo. Delicious, yet clearly not on the same level of awesomeness as the aroma.
In summary, the Buddha delivers once again.

On tap at the brewery, pours a dark brown black opaque color with a small head. Nose is fruity and sweet with flavorful chocolate and cherries. Taste is rich chocolate, fruity and sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. Finishes quite smoothly on the same sweet chocolate but less fruity notes. Quaff score 7 / 10
