Oily opaque dark brown. Firm cherry and burnt sugar, muscovado times. Soft smokey malt. Initial taste is silky cherry, soft roast and black pepper. Finishes a fair bit sweet. Linger is terse bitter roast. Hangs in there.

[keg at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Black pour with a small, tight, beige coloured head. Huskily smoky on the nose, with plenty of roasted chocolate – very toasty, really, on the nose. Some slightly tart fruit from the cherry. On the taste, the roasted malts take over, some of the cherry comes out eventually, before the smokiness arrives on the finish. This was the beer they wanted to put cigar tobacco in, before discovering it was toxic. Tastes pretty good to me [19112012]

Keg at Bat. Black pour, thick fluffy beige head. Very light fruity cherry, roast, deep dark chocolate, not really getting the smoke nose. Big deep roast, soft dark chocolate, slightest soft smoke, touch of booze, light fruity tartness, long pine bitterness. Very good stout! But possibly needs more cherry and smoke.

Tap at bat. Black with short lived tan head. Aroma is mostly smoke, peat, slightly meaty. Similar taste, hint of chocolate and through faintest cherry on the finish. I wouldn’t have picked out the cherry if I wasn’t told it was in there. Decent body, slightly sweet with a clean finish. A good beer and well balanced
