2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Initial taste isn't bad, but after a few sips it's kinda horrible. Not much cherry taste. A little sticky.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep umber color with a finger or two of mocha foam. Aromas are black cherry, roasted chocolate and some earthy compost notes... On the palate its a bit muddy. Slight black cherry cola notes get tangled in dark dirt burnt malt and a bit of off bitterness that I know is from the cherries but its a bit rich in the earthy notes and a little to muddled in the finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pitch black with a pretty sizable mocha head that leaves behind some soapy lace. Nose of chocolate and cherries with plenty of roasted notes. Taste is pretty sweet with some roasted bitterness and a fair amount of tartness from the cherries. Pretty full bodied, creamy, somewhat active carb, with a tangy rich finish. Really good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Pours black, moderate to large frothy beige head, hints of cherry colors in the lacing thats left behind, and might I add it has very nice lacing.   Heavy roast and dark chocolate up front, a little coffee like
as well.   Cherry comes out a bit on the backside, but its a little subdued.   I expected it to be a bit more.   However, it has a fruity tartness that seems to me like unripened cherries.   Don’t know that I would call
this a Fruit Beer as its a pretty hefty Porter as is.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Its smooth, but also a little bubbley.   Backside has this bakers chocolate that is pretty strong, along with some deep rich chocolate
covered cherries.   Not as sweet as I expected, but still enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Sweet milk chocolate, coffee, and cherry aroma. Black with a small brown head. Coffee, cherry, charcoal, light acidic, and a little chocolate flavor. Medium body, lively carbonation. This is so well done that I liked it, despite the fact that I hate cherry flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a black coloured beer with a small tanned head. Aroma is full of sour cherries, as well as some porter notes like coffee and dark chocolate. Very interesting smell, taste is even more interesting. The sour cherries return in the flavour, as wel as the chocolate notes. Making this basicly a chocolate cherry beer, very enjoyable and easy drinkable. Quite sweet overall taste and thick, cloying mouthfeeel. This is a great example of an awesome fruit beer in my opinion.

Sample at Haand Festival 2012. Black colored, brown head. Aroma of licorice, cherries (surprise surprise) and roasted malt. Taste is more complex, as above plus chocolate, wood and a bit of smoke. Enjoyable beer, with a roasted bitter finish.
