aroma reminds me of grape/cherry cough syrup, pours like you’d expect, dark black. Taste to match with some syrupy sweetness.

boFNjackson (4200) - 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.

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.

anders37 (23333) - 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.

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.

Unbelievable cherry chocolate aromas from this pint of pitch black madness. When served cold, the fizzy mouthfeel and nicely roasted malted flavour guaranteed smooth drinking ahead. But once this brew warms up, it just becomes a mess. The flavour turns slightly sour and acidic and the cherry aspect that was so appealing in the aroma turns into flat Cherry Coke or even worse, fruity antacid tablets! Too bad, this started off interesting. My advice: drink it fast or order a 1/2 pint.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2008
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 (6737) - 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.
