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.

Theydon_Bois (17228) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
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.

Oakes (15805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2007 First tasted at the Rose & Raindrop in spring ’05 and I hated it. So I gave it a re-sample at the brewpub in Stevenson. Basically black. Black cherry soda smell. I sure could go for a Montreal smoked meat sandwich right now. Taste....gak...gong show of very bitter patent malt and sugar sweet robitussin cherry. Fucking awful.

On tap at Bottleworks, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of cherries and roasted malt. Flavour of potent cherries upfront, with the latter half revealing flavours of roasted malt, a considerable smokiness and wood. Interesting creation here.

(RBSG04) Black body with creamy tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, roasty cherry. Taste is medium sweet, burnt cherry, some coffee, chocolate. Watery medium body. Nice idea, but doesn’t work for me.

slowrunner77 (10238) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 13, 2014
solid, unique beer that combines the sweetness of chocolate with roasted malt and slightly tart cherries very well. Medium bodied, but with an aftertaste that lingers.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2005
Black beer with a thin-dark brown head. Sweet black cherry aroma exlodes out of the glass and completely obliterates everything else. Flavour is quite sweet up front, strong and artificial tasting. Fruit fades a bit toward the finish leaving a milk-chocolate flavour and some light roasty finish. Low bitterness. This might have worked better with about 1/4 of the cherry character. As it stands, it’s too sweet and candyish to really enjoy.

3fourths (9146) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Sampled @ Horse Brass, July 2004. Deep black with a brown head. Nose of pure black cherries, not many stout qualities in the aroma. Thin initially, cherries with some harsh chocolate that’s entirely too sweet. By the end of a pint I was sick of it.
