Sampled @ Horsebrass Pub. I love Walking Man’s beers and this one was nice, but a little heavy on the cherries and a little too tart for me.

boFNjackson (4171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Tap @ Horse Brass Pub... Poured black with a thin, light brown head. Maraschino cherries on the nose. There was some chocolate and roasted coffee undertones, but the cherries were prominent. Think black cherry soda mixed with a stout.

anders37 (17520) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2008
Draught @ Horse Brass Pub, Portland. Pours a black color with a small tan head. Has a sweetish malty cherry aroma with hints of chocolate. Sweetish roasted malty chocolate and cherry flavor. Has a sweet roasted malty chocolate finish with lots of cherries in the aftertaste.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Black with browned head. Intense whiff of cherry and roast barley from the glass. Juicy smooth mouthfeel and lack of carbonation are the most prominent weakness to this beer. Medium cherry flavor with some roast character.

riversideAK (5626) - 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.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2009
aroma reminds me of grape/cherry cough syrup, pours like you’d expect, dark black. Taste to match with some syrupy sweetness.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2008
On tap at the Horse Brass in Portland. This is the infamous "Dr. Pepper beer" of which the less said, the better. Both tastes and smells of the dreaded aforementioned soda, and is probably the worst stout I’ve ever had. Way too nauseatingly sweet and cloying.

after4ever (6251) - 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.

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.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2008
7/19/08 On draught at the Brewpub. Aroma is just like cherry coke with an underlying caramel note. Appearance is nearly black with a moderate maintained tan head. Flavor is great cherry sweetness forward with a very even roast balance. Mouthfeel is full bodied with a very low carb texture. Overall, quite cool, and slightly artificial.
