pintbypint (2706) - Edmonton, Alberta, - AUG 17, 2012
355ml brown bottle. Black pour, opaque. head is caramel coloured, sticky lace. Nose has some cherry fruit, some tang. Taste has tangy cherry, big roasted malt, sweet chocolate. Finishes drier, roast, woody barrel, faint coffee, some lingering cherry tang. Full body, smooth and light carbonation. Alcohol blends in well. Very nice, would like to have all three of these Monkey beers in a side by side.

JMerritt (1844) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottled, courtesy of Narnad. Pours very dark brown with a tiny light brown head. Rich, sugary and malty aroma: raisin, plum, bourbon, brown sugar and molasses. There is just a hint of fruity cherry in the nose, but not very much. The cherry is a bit more prominent in the initial flavor, but eventually wanes as the heavy, sticky malts overtake the profile. Finish is a touch burnt (coffee, slight wood). Carbonation is low but nice for the style. Cherry seems a little sugary and phony to me - at times cloying. Still, overall, it’s a decent, warming stout.

Theydon_Bois (9948) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2014
930 am 2nd tick’o’the’day on Cascades 501 from Tacoma to Portland Union, thanks to Ferris for the Province tick, 08/11/14. Pitch black with a decent tan covering. Nose carries bourbon notes, earthy roast, dark berry fruits, woody barrel, chocolate, leather, dark malts, tarte cherry tunes. Taste comprises tangy cherries, light coconut shavings, musty red berry licks, touch lactic, bourbon notes, chocolate. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Nice impy, tangy cherry berry and ABV well integrated, another good breakfast beer!

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a medium size dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with some black chocolates notes with a hint of cherry also noticeable is enticing. Taste is dominated by rich black chocolate notes with some dry roasted malt notes with very subtle notes of cherry. Body is pretty full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed but doesn’t taste as close as cherry blossom as I would have expected.

keeganrohovich (6) - saskatoon, Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014 does not count
On tap at the woods ale house. Pours black with a thin layer of head. Cherry on the nose. Tart cherry taste. Not as much of the big chocolate and booziness that I love in imperial stouts. Not bad. Very wet.

Bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose/taste of roast chocolate, blac and dark cherry, dusty cocoa, whiskey, oak and earth. Lighter medium body.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks to the Canadian Contingent. Black pour without much head or carbonation. Tons of roast, coffee, and chocolate. Black cherry, some grenadine, and a nice vanilla note. Sort of some dusty cocoa, too. Flavor has a nice bitterness of roasted malt and some ash. Sweet grenadine and black cherry soda. Vanilla and a bit of molasses. Good dark chocolate flavor and coffee, too.

mcberko (7236) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
355mL bottle, pours jet black with a medium tan / brown head. Nose brings out loads of fresh maraschino cherries, over top subtler roasted malt that is more or less drowned out by the cherries. Flavour brings out dry, subtly tart cherries upfront, along with roasted malt, and some powdery dry cocoa powder. The cherries do dominate, but it’s still clear this is an impie stout through and through, with a soft, velvety, creamy body. Finishes on the subtly tart, dry cherries. Solid stuff, considering I don’t normally like fruited stouts.

rodenbach99 (3264) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
Une petite bouteille (merci Pat) bue avec la version bourbon. Une bière brune foncée avec un mince couche de mousse brune. Un nez de chocolat au lait et à la vanille française avec une touche de cerises. Une touche noyau de cerises à bien y penser. La bouche est soyeuse sans être ronde. Les notes de chocolat au lait s’entremêlent avec le bois. Une finale simple et mince passablement acide avec des notes de cerises en pot.

Une robe comme ses prédécesseurs. Pour ce qui est de la tête, elle se porte cette fois-ci en anneau. Au nez, la cerise vole incontestablement la vedette. Je dirais même plus que cette bière dégage des parfums de Cherry Blossom ®. C’est pas vilain du tout mais c’est aussi un peu artificiel. Au goût, c’est déjà mieux. Ça ressemble à une pâte chocolatée mouillée dans le bourbon avec des cerises surettes. En bouche, un corps légèrement plus dense que la version bourbon. La texture me semble ici presque huileuse. Le pétillement est toujours très bas. En finale - c’est dommage – beaucoup de bourbon brûlant et de fleurs éthyliques amères. Croyez-moi, cette proposition est bien intéressante. Son seul problème, je pense, c’est le suivant: elle ne m’est pas vraiment destinée.
