Boutip (5464) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of cough syrup and cherry syrup with light roasted notes is mildly enjoyable. Taste is a mix of cough syrup with cherry flavored syrup, quite a bit of residual sugar notes with some lactose. Body is full with creamy texture and good carbonation. Not a big fan of the cherry flavour in this beer.

napdynmite (90) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2015
This is a cherry truffle beast. Smells of charred wood, cherries, dough, leather. Taste is slightly syrupy cherries, chocolate, licorice. Finish is slightly tart, astringent. Alcohol is strong from the get-go. This is a sipper.

Nickls (2165) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle. Jet black pour, dark khaki head. Lots of roast and slightly sour cherries as well as cocoa in the aroma. Deep dark chocolate, toasty malts, roasted coffee, very slight tart cherry as well in the flavor. Medium to heavier velvety body. I think this is solid, though I prefer the raspberry version much more.

jkwood04 (5058) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 15, 2015
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate and dark malts, cherry, light notes of vanilla, some hints of roast, lactose, and some light bitterness. Flavors not really the best blend of everything. Average texture. A decent beer but not the best.
