Black, light beige bubbles. Has a nice rich cherry cordial aroma. The flavor is much the same with a charred stout character, though not in excessive quantity. The cherry is rich and aromatic and not medicinal at all. I very much enjoy the combination of berry fruit character with the chocolaty roasty stout notes.

dark, dark brown beer with a beige head, which has good retention. smells like black cherries! A yummy beer with a smooth palate. Some might be put off by the amount of cherry flavor, but I enjoyed it. Dark chocolate flavor as well. A good beer to serve with ice cream. The higher abv is undetectable. Delicious.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 3, 2010
On tap at Henry’s. Pours very black with a dark beige head. Incredible cherry aroma, perhaps some raspberry there also. I’ve had cough syrups that taste weaker than this beer. It is syrupy sweet but it still has a big, big berry flavor. This is a really fun beer.

HighWine (950) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Tap at Taphouse Grill in Bellevue, WA. Dark brown pour with beige head. Nose is chocolate cherry candies. Taste is a good balance of dark cherry and roasted malt. Would have loved some chocolate in here.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Pours a deep brown black with minimal tan head. Aroma is wonderful, a fresh cherry with a hint of chocolate. Unfortunately, taste doesn’t measure up, as it is rather medicinal, with a cough syrup like ending.

acblue (91) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Deep black pour, big tan head. Wonderful aroma of black cherries and malt. Very natural aroma betrayed by very artificial flavor; almost medicinal. Decent, but not as good as promised by the first impression.

FarFromHome (85) - Philadelphia, Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Draft in Portland, Oregon. What can you say? Dark and syrupy, no head, thick chocolate and coffee flavors. A little bit of cherry in the aftertaste.

after4ever (6089) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2009
draft at collins. pours nearly jet black with a modest and short lived tan disc on top. nice sweet candyish cherry nose. some roasty chocolate there as well. nice creamy medium body with lowish carb. big cherry flavor with a lot of roast. should be chocolate instead of roast imo. ends really really dry ashy and bitter. too dark and acetic.

riversideAK (5591) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Tap at Naked City. Aroma of tart black cherry over a bed of roasted malt and coffee. Pours dark brown with red hues and a thin head. Up front cherry juiciness followed by some dry roast and bitter chocolate notes. Lingering tart/dry finish.
