12oz bottle. 12/1/15 bottle date. Appearance: Jet black with a moderate brown head that dissipated quickly. Aroma: Roasted malt and black cherry notes. Taste: Light roasted malt that quickly turns to a sharp, tart black cherry. Light to moderate perceived bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation. Finish: Dry, tart cherry lingers with a touch of roast. Overall: Surprised at the intensity of the tart cherry, but it balances the roasted malt well. Could use a bit more carbonation, but overall a nice beer.

A dark brown color with a one finger tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, slight coffee and a hint of cherry. Taste is the same. A good one, but I got tired of the sweet taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In the glass it has an extreme darkness with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa and some cherries. The taste has some tartness with cherries along with some chocolate and more roasted malts. Medium finish.

From a bottle. Pours a thick, dark brown and makes a thin brown head. Very syrupy. Lots of microbubbles are visible when swirling the glass. Not much lacing, though. Aroma is of cocoa and Bing cherry and vanilla. Tastes of malt, cherries, and chocolate. Not too much alcohol and not too viscous mouthfeel. I like this stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Beers of the World, Henrietta. Musty cherry and roasty aroma. Sour cherry and molasses taste. Mildly bitter finish. Not bad.

klaing (282) - Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Pours dark with foamy head which quickly dissolves cherry evident from the start underpinned by chocolaty malts. Not too sweet. Thin mouthfeel for a stout, but liked it more than I thought I would. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown color with tan head. Cherries, just like the name says, with some roast and cocoa on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a chocolate covered cherry flavor.

Cherries are present throughout, jousting in a slightly medicinal way with chocolate in the aroma and taking over the sour, smoky finish. Beautiful to look at, with mounds of burgundy-red foam that calmly subsides. This was a fresh bottle, consumed about two months after the bottling date in November 2015.

MarcoDL (5100) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of PotjeBier. Aroma of roasted malt, mild cherry and sweet chocolate. Taste has mild smooth cherry, choco, mild roast and some subtle tart that could be from the cherry core. Nice one.
