Aroma is rich malts, sweet cherry, light funkiness and sulphur. Taste is sweet malts, cherry, plum and raisin. Finishes with slight bitterness. Body is a clear dark amber. Head is a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Flip top 1L bottle, 2010 dated. Pours a dark, opaque brown with a thin tan head. Light but steady carbonation. Aroma is earthy, tinny. Taste is slightly bitter, strong malt tones with roasty cereal like flavours, warms to a slightly cherry (sour) taste. Finish is of cherries. Overall pretty good; It’s a porter with cherry tones in it.

On tap at national beer hall Calgary. Didn't get a lot of cherry from this. Tasted like a nice sweet stout. Lactose. Not too roasty. Enjoyable.

Dark and roasty with chocolate and subtle cherry notes. Really might have just thought "vaguely fruity" if they hadn’t put cherry in the name.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark pour, very dark... Topped by a thin lacy brown head. Aroma is toasty malty and backed by light fruit. Tastes like a Porter, toasted malt, roasty, smooth with a hint of Okanogan cherry, just the way it should; please sir, I’d like another!

Dark black pour, limited head, low carbonation. True porter attributes. Hint of sweet with extra smokey. Hints of cherry; not overwhelming, which I enjoy. Nothing worse than hiding proper beer flavours, with sweet fruits. Well done by Wild Rose.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rating #909 - January 13, 2014 -1oz sample because apparently I look like I love dark beer. I guess. Craft Beer Market. Clear, dark brown pour with a foamy, tan head. Aroma is dark roast malts, chocolate, and almonds, black forest cake. Taste is full-bodied, smooth, and loaded with toasted malt character, but almost too choke-cherry. Too much fruit and sweet cocoa, not enough bitterness. Very light bodied for the style.

Black velvety dark pour, armoma of coffee, roast, a hint of cherries but not overwhelming. Taste is much the same, well rounded and delicious. Very nice.

Pours from 1 L bottle into a pint glass. Dark brown with tan head that lasts. Nose is malt and chocolate. I didn't notice cherry. Taste is similar. Tart finish. Good beer but I was expecting better.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is far and away the best beer brewed by the Wild Rose Brewery. A very dark brown pour with reddish hints around the edges. Sweet roasted malt, chocolate, and cherries come through the nose and gives way to a plasant tasting beer that combines a chocolately bitterness with some cherry tartness.
