On nitro at Imperial Bottle Shop & Taproom. Pitch black color with muddy tan head. Aroma is deep dark cherry with a hint of roasted malt. Taste is dark cherry, espresso, dark chocolate, and roasted malt. Only the note of bitterness in the aftertaste keeps the rating from being even higher.

This was a stout to remember with lots of roasted malted character coming through in both the flavour an aroma and sweet cherries complementing quite well. Drinks better than a 7.2% beer!

Tap at Walking Man, Stevenson, 24/05/13. Mid black with a medium tan head that retains well. Nose is cherries, dark chocolate, dark malt, light roast. Taste comprises black forest gateux, light roast, mineral bite, sugars. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, light roasty finish backed up with sugars. Ok if a little on the sweet side.

ACHops (1360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2013
On tap @ the brewpub in Stevenson. Pours thick inky black with big mocha head. Aroma is sweet cherries and a bit of chocolate. Taste is rich dark roasty malts followed by big sweet cherry flavors. Notes of chocolate and espresso on the finish. Rich, heavy mouthfeel. Definitely not one of those subtle fruit beers, lots of cherry flavor here. Probably not for everyone, but a nice respite from much milder versions that are common. Worth seeking out if you are in the vicinity.

When I travel to Portland, I try to go to Henry’s to specifically drink this awesome beer. The taste is great and it is strong enough to get your attention

Aroma of black cherries and roasted malts... Deep black in color... Flavor has significant black cherry notes, kind of artificial tasting... Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

10oz pour @ Horse Brass. Pours black, with small tan head. Spotty lacing. Aroma is fantastic-- dark cherry and toasted malt. Flavor is the same-- not like couch syrup at all-- a nice subtle black cherry that hides behind a wall of smokiness. Espresso and cherry on the finish; moderate to low carbonation, long aftertaste. Reallllly good brew.
