a dark black stout with a tan/brown head. aroma of black cherries and nothing else. the cherries are a little too much, wish i could have tasted a little more beer, but nonetheless, a great brew.

Tasted @ Horse Brass Pub in Portland.
Black colored brew. Aroma of cherries. Bittersweet flavor with fruity, cherry, taste. Some roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate as well. Pretty decent, but a bit too much on the cherries.

IBF ’07 I absolutely love beers mixed with "non-traditional" ingredients. The black cherry was a perfect compliment, and if an extract not saccharine at all.

AmEricanbrew (5801) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Black with a tight tan head. Big cherry soda aroma. Smooth slick mouthfeel. Medium body. Nice balance of artificial cherry soda flavoring with a rich dose of black malts. The fake cherry flavor lingers far too long in the finish, much like a diet soda would, this ruins an otherwise tasty base stout. Draft@ Horse Brass.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2008
Draft. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of cherries as well as light notes of chocolate. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of cherries and almonds, as well as benzaldehyd and chocolate, reminding me of the chocolate Mon Cheri - not my thing in a beer. The finish is dry with the cherry note still lingering.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 [when I did the originally review I sent it before putting int he numbers] On tap at Hose Brass. The aroma is "Cherry! Any Questions?" a good balance of sweet and black, cant find enough light to seee through this beer, to see if theres any reddish hue (dark even at 2pm in here). tannish head thats scant. the aroma is definitely sour cherry, backed (but not balanced) by roasted malt & coffee tones

Aroma is fine if you like black cherry or pepsi. Taste is fine if you like cherry pepsi. Pour is fine if you like cherry pepsi. You get the idea.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2008
On tap at Henry’s Tavern. Pours a darker reddish brown without much of a head. The nose is full of, well, black cherry. Sweet and fruity, with that strong cherry acidity. Theres some roast and some small dry chocolate. The mouthfeel is fuller and creamier with subtle fullness. Flavors are in line with the nose. Really opens up as it warms. The cherry is there, The chocolate is larger, with roast to boot. A nice smokey subtlety emerged. Lingering acidity is perhaps a bit stronger than I enjoy, and leads to acid the whole way through, but really nice to drink anyways.

On tap at Henry’s in Portland--Poured a deep thick black body with a minuscule wispy beige head. Nose of robust chocolate, malts, and bright vibrant cherry sweetness. A super desert beer!

sampled @ brewpub - the only "dark" beer on the menu during my visit; jet black with creamy pink head; aromas mix of roasted malts and cherries; cherry hints in the flavor are smooth and sweet and mixed with chocolate; a little thin, but creamy texture; a very nice stout
