UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 18.5.2013, 0,35l bottle @ home:
Nice foamy cocoa-cherry colored head, but falls a little to fast. Aroma is rich, roasted coffee, soy sauce, dark berries, grass, salty caramel, hay. Taste is very harsh, lots of metal, coffee, dark berries, grass, hay. Medium bitterness. Not good at all.

Bottle. Near black with a beige head. Cherry, chocolate and malt aromas. Similar flavors but with a lot of coffee and a more sour cherry note. Kind of astringent.

Bottle, 355ml - Black bornw beer with a disappearing large beige head. Aroma is fruity with notes of caramel, black cherries, chocolate, vanilla and cream. Flavor is fruity with notes of sour cherries, black cherries, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Great porter that reminds me a lot of Cherry Garcia ice cream.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black color, deep brown head, shortlasting. Aromas to cherries, black fruits, black coffee and some spices like cinnamon in the back. The mouthfeel is very nice , surprisingly refreshing, where the coffee notes are well balanced with the slight acidity from the black fruits. Very original brew, refreshing, watery and with a acid aftertaste which makes this beer a summer one. I liked it.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Kullsvart med ravfarget skum og moderat skum. Lukter av god malt og kaffe. Smak av sjokolade, men smaken av bær er framtredende. Middels bitter og moderat karbonering gjør dette til en vinner.

12oz bottle, thanks to Umich03jm. Black color. Good brown head. Awesome lace. Pretty great-looking. Nice chocolate flavor, and good big black cherry. Very well blended. Moderate bitter, little sweet (tart) taste. Some roasty malts. Pretty sure I prefer this over Bells’ cherry porter. More my style. I feel like the cherry is bigger and tastier, here. Very special stuff

Draft to pint. Nice variation on the classic porter taste; the black cherry makes it different, but not so much that it is a turn-off. Yes, flavor does come around as it warms up. It was served to me chllled, but it should be served only slightly chilled.
