mcberko (8520) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
330mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Nose is pretty robust, with loads of cherries and roasted malt. Flavour brings out a great mix of roasted malt and cherries. I usually don’t like cherries (or fruits) in stouts, but this is done expertly. Rich and robust without any abrasiveness. Excellent.

olsvammel (3885) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of sour cherries together with some hard roasted aromas, dark bitter chocolate and burned toast. Sweet and sour taste with a notable cherry aroma, some dark malts and dark chocolate. I’m a fan of cherries so this works for me. But I think it could be a bit harsh on the throat.

jesperhammer (3355) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2015
27-MAR-2014, bottle @Papsř clear all tasting, @Amager Bryghus with Ulklřbben. Black with lasting creamy Brown head. Aroma is sour! A big bodied roasted sour. Not a big fan of sour imperial stouts but it Works here. Is it on purpose? I guess infected but I do not care. Nice:-)

CloakedDagger (1080) - - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a pitch black with a light brown head. Roasty nose with a tart edge. Rich body, some initial roast but then a massive sourness comes riding in spoiling most of the fun. Really appears massively infected - strangely for such a strong beer. 270315

Cunningham (5261) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2014
Dark as the deepest dungeon, with a big frothy beige head that last. Nice complex aroma. Chocolate, oak, espresso and a bit fruity. Full body, but a bit to rich carbonation. Really fizzy. Tad sweet and a fine bitterness. Rich flavor with chocolate, espresso, fruit oak and a bit tart. At last a really nice blend. Absolutely recommendable.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order, Sweden]

Smakprov från tappen kolsvart med tjock brunt skum, mycket choklad och kaffe med ett stänk av körsbär, vanligtvis gillar jag inte den här typen av öl men körsbären är ganska dov i smaken
