2012 vintage in bottle at Church Key. Pours a still pitch black with more lacing than legs when swirled. Aroma is a cherry punch to the face, with hint of rye. Flavor is incredible: cherry and char, bourbon and bite, vanilla and dark fruit tang. Truly unique, huhzubendah.

Bottle. Dark Brown-black pour with thin mocha head and nice hue. Aroma is huge dark chocolate and cherry pie. Also flavors of dark chocolate and cherry pie, though I find it artificial similar to cherry syrup and slightly medicinal. Thick oily and sticky mouthfeel. A big boy’s beer, highly flavored. Too bad it feels artificial because the aroma is spot on.

Bottle at Hay Merchant. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is booze, faint cherry, oak. Medium mouthfeel with light cherry, oak, and boozey finish. Very good.

Bottle courtesy of madbeerbaron. Not much cherry in the nose. Pours pitch black. No head. Not much booze in the nose. Taste has some cherry but honestly it is quite weird. Very, well, cherry, but not what I was expecting. Kind of tart and kind of astringent like chewing on fruit skin. Definitely some alcohol boost. Good but definitely interesting. Something interesting there. Hmmmm.

Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Pours a deep dark blackish color with no head. Subtle cherry aroma, light bourbon notes, big malty chocolate character. Lots of real cherry flavor, not an artificial cherry like typical beers...Like eating a cherry. Finishes with all the bourbon character you’d expect from regular bourbon county stout followed by more cherries. Tons of yumm.

Bottle share thanks to Homer! Pours black, no head. Aroma is bourbon, of course, cherry is lite, if at all. Taste is smooth again, get a bit if the cherry, a bit sweet. Some chocolate mixed in there, boost burn a bit in the background. Tasty. Think I like prop a tad more.

Bottled on 11/12/12 according to the bottle. Bourbon in the aroma, some chocolate and just a bit of cherries and molasses. Pitch black body with a thin tan head. Chocolate, coffee, dark cherries, and a lot of alcohol. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Delicious.

Dumpfer Kirschantrunk mit deutlichem Alkohol. Wenig schokoladig, vollmundiger werdend, weiterhin alkoholisch. Noch OK aber zu viel von allem. 9/11/8/12/9/8
