This poured a dark brown almost black with a tan head. Aroma was chocolate, light smoke and fairly faint cherries. Flavor was also very subtle cherries, chocolate, but dark burn chocolate and roast. Pretty decent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a black color with a small tan head that faded and left some lacing. The aroma was roasty malts with a hint of coffee. The flavor was tart cherries, roasty malts, smoke and charcoal. The finish was long, roasty and woody. Medium body. The cherries were very subdued. Disappointing.
