Nice beer. Good, not great. Tasty chocolate & roasted flavor but the cherry is kinda flawed. (12oz bottle / Liquor Barrell - St Louis Park, Miracle Mile / 05/2012)

Cherry aroma; inky black appearance with a frothy tan head; toasted dark chocolate and light cherry taste; initial fizz on the palate with a creamy and bitter finish; overall, a very good porter with a unique cherry undertones

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours an opaque black with a fizzy short lived tan head. Aroma is heavy dark chocolate with a hint of cherry, like cherry chocolate cake, slight amount of roast, and a bit of a cherry cola feel. Taste is bitter dark chocolate with some sweet fruit in the mid palate to round out the flavor. Slightly sweet and dessert like finish. Medium bodied with some creaminess and some prickly carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, $4 from the Dilly Deli Cafe. Pours a black color, with a darker brown slightly reddish head. Couple loose bits of lace. Not much aroma in the nose, but good chocolate and light cherry in the flavor. Bigger body, lightly chewy. Crisp, very light carbonation. As it warms up, cherry becomes much more noticeable, especially in the finish, but not to the level it is in Bells’ Cherry Stout. Pretty nice balance of flavors. Light to moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet. Light hint of tart acidic. A good cherry chocolate stout. Glad I got the chance to try this. 2 were left on the shelf when I picked it up earlier today.

Bottle from Itts Dog. I can't believe I paid $8 for this. Aroma of sour cherry and some chocolate. Pours a deep black with a tan head. The taste is slightly sour with a slight balancing sweetness. Super oily texture and good carbonation just not worth the price I paid.

12 oz. from who-knows-where. This has been sitting in my cellar since summer 2011. Not sure how it compares to fresh but this is mellow and balanced. Smells like cherry cough syrup and chocolate. Tastes stouty enough and finishes with a little acidity. Not sure it needed to be cellared all this time, but tasty nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with a medium brown head that slowly fades away. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, cherry, mild oak, mild alcohol, earthy hops and light alcohol. Taste of cherry, chocolate, cocoa, chili powder, mild wood and finishes up mildly bitter and a touch chalky.

Opaque black beer with a tidy dark tan head. Palate starts slightly soft but turns crispy and semi dry. Mildly tart cherry, good dark chocolate - sweetened by the vanilla. The two flavours in good balance. Softish finish. Very nice!

Bottled. Pours black with a short brown head. Short retention and minimal lace. Medium sweet aroma and flavors of dark chocolate covered cherries and a light roast. Medium body, soft carbonation, sticky texture, and a light sweet mid-palate followed by a light bitter, roasty finish. Very nice effort that has held up nicely.
