Theydon_Bois (7935) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle at home, 11/06/14, acquired from the bottle shop at the rear of Capones, Norristown PA. Pours black with a good sized tan head that retains well. Nose is roast malt, cherry well evident, chocolate, light metallic notes. Taste comprises milk chocolate, chocolate dipped cherries, light roast, Medium bodied, fine massageing carbonation, sweet vs lactic ring in the close. Solid sweet stout, gets the cherry and chocolate message across to the viewer without being sweet or messy.

kramer (4860) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a ark brown body, almost completely opaque, under a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is rich and chocolaty with just a light hint of cherry. Lots of roast and sweet burnt caramel. The flavor is rather sweet with lots of milk chocolate and cocoa powder. The cherry is pretty well hidden, but emerges a bit late on the finish. The roast works really well and balanced the sweetness a bit and keeps it from becoming too cloying. Medium bodied and a bit clingy with some sticky caramel and residual sugars. Soft gentle fizzy carbonation. Pretty tasty beer, among the better beers Iíve had from these guys thus far.

jrodooo5 (925) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Very nice black pour w/ a lovely tan head that doesnít leave much lacing. The aroma is very stout like w/ roasted notes shining through w/ maybe a hint of cherry. The taste has much more cherry flavor than the aroma. Itís like a fruit stout but it works pretty well! It has very good texture & mouthfeel. Well done!

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle:   Black, cola hued edges, thin frothy beige head, little lacing.   Soft roasted malts, a touch of pasture, not so much in the cherry and chocolate.   Perhaps just a smidge of Dark Chocolate.   Smooth, but not all that rich.   Does pick up some sweetness towards the back.   Middle of the road, but faitly solid.   Thanks Brad!

ben4321 (3765) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/16/14

Aroma: The aroma is dark chocolate and cherry, with some roasted notes as well
Appearance: Pours an almost black color with a small, light brown head
Flavor: The taste is medium-plus sweet, with some roasted notes for balance
Palate: The body is light-medium, it feels slightly thin, with a clean, mildly sticky finish
Overall Impression: This is definitely a sweet beer, but it isnít cloying or undrinkable, so thatís nice. The flavor combination works pretty well. Iíd call this a perfectly nice dessert beer.

Beerathon (1077) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2014
A fun brew. Iíd have liked it to be a bit thicker, but the chocolate and the cherries mesh well with the lactose.

nearbeer (3590) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2014
12 oz. Opaque ebony with a creamy disc of foam. Smells of dark-roasted husky grain, soy, soured milk, dark chocolate and light booze. Tastes of chocolate covered cherry and sour cream. Touches of espresso and graham cracker on the finish help to dry this sweet brew a bit. Medium-heavy body has a smooth low carbonation and is to the sweet side.

Dark beer with a khaki colored foam ring for a head. Sweet nose of chocolate covered cherries with some roast grains. This is a very sweet beer with lots of lactose, hints of cherry pie filling and dark chocolate. Almost too rich for me.
