dirt55 (198) - Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2008
bottled, pours deep black/red, aroma of cherry cordials mixed with coffee, surprisingly full flavor that matches the aroma perfectly without being overwhelming, not to heavy mouth feel with hints of citrus on the tongue, pretty clean aftertaste, like much more then expected

boFNjackson (4024) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Bottle... Poured near black with red highlights and a light brown head that also has some red in it. Aroma has strong cherry and grenadine. Really smooth like chocolate milk and grenadine and some toasted malt to remind you that you are drinking a beer. Slightly like a cough drop but pretty ok.

Sleeper (91) - Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Pours redish with little head. The beer is pretty thin in the mouth. The taste is very cherry with lots of grain in the after taste. This isnt too bad but not much my style.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2008
From a 12-ounce bottle purchased at By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA--Poured a deep brown-amber body with a one-finger fluffy white head that quickly dissipates. Bold, sweet cherry nectar nose with some roasty notes. Thin, sweet mouthfeel. Some chocolate and lots of sugary cherries. Not the most exciting beer, but for those who like cherries, this is a cherry bomb!

4oz Taster - Hop Scotch Spring Beer Festival - Seattle, WA
Aroma Had a nice cherry and porter dark malt aroma.
Appearance Reddish Brown in color, thin head and actually was hazy for a porter.
Flavor Wow this beer goes south fast. Has a cherry start then after a few sips this beer goes flat, with a dark chocolate dry sour flavor. Not a good flavor for this beer was chalky, and very off.
Palate Sour Mouthfeel, Chalky texture with a dry bakers chocolate finish.
Overall I was looking so forward in trying this beer that when I got it. I was very disappointed. I was hoping for this awesome beer but I got the exact opposite. This beer needs work. I just hope this was a bade keg and the others where rocking. I will try again at a later date.

carruthm (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2008
purpleish black color with a red tinge to the small head. smells like a cherry cordial. taste is disappointing with flat cherry chocolate.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2008
Bottle. Poured deep red brown with red tinged head. Aroma of cherries and a little roast. Bitter cherry flavour, not much else. Unsweetened cherry finish that lasts longer than you wish. I had hoped this would be like Walking Mans Black Cherry stout. I was disappointed.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 25, 2008
2008 Bottle - Pours a thick brownish red, aroma is attractive but completely artificial. This would not be a bad porter, but the cherry flavour is hard to swallow (no pun intended) and just detracts. The smoke/vanilla/ all other goodness is almost unnoticable. Will not buy again...

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2008
Tap at Duck Island. Dark brown with red hues and a nice tan head. Had an aroma that was like a cherry tootsie roll, or Cherry chocolate Dr. Pepper. It smelt artificial. A little earthy too. This was like a chocolate cherry coke to me with a mildly earthy hop finish. I like Cherry Coke and Dr. Pepper, but this somewhat odd.

bitbucket (2158) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2008
On tap at Duck Island. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Cherry tootsie-roll aroma. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of chocolate, artificial cherries, artificial vanilla, with a somewhat medicinal and rather metallic finish. I couldnt get close to finishing this.
