TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2009
341 ml bottle. Dark brown with a smooth tan head. Nose is cocoa and coffee with hints of sweet and tart cherry. Creamy body but not overly thick. Thins out rather quickly with fizzy carb. Taste is chocolate and cherry with a dry espresso finish. Simple but works well.

Spab (3564) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2011
341 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a very dark brown with a slight orange tinge and modest-sized mocha coloured head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and a hint of cherry. Taste is dark roasted malt with coffee and dark chocolate notes accompanied by a subtle sweet cherry flavour. Lingering coffee/chocolate bitterness in finish. Nice.

Thanks to decatursteveo for another one! Thin off-white head over a dark black body.Chocolate malt aroma / cocoa powder. The chocolate is well done, the cherry comes in a s sourness in the finish. Thin bodied. O.K.?

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Thanks Jason. The beer pours to a thin looking blackish brown body with no head. The aroma is dark chocolate and light cherries. The flavor is cocoa powder and cheap malt. Generic tartness. Flat powdery dry palate.

GregClow (3294) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2005
Sampled at Cest Whats Spring 2005 Festival of Small Breweries. Colour is dark ruby-brown. Aroma is chocolate & roast malt, slightly medicinal, oddly a little salty. Body is thinner than I generally like from my stouts. Flavour has a nice roastiness, some tartness from the cherry, and a well bittered finish. Some others at my table were turned off by the cherry, and grumblings of "cough syrup" were heard, but I didnt mind it. I just wanted a bit more body to heft things up a bit.

cfrancis (3260) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2011
Pours a inky black with a big almond head that quickly disappears. Aroma of rich roasty malts, sweet chocolate and a hint of cherry. This is what I like about this beer. The cherry isnt overpowering, in fact you have to look for it. Its a great sweet stout with roasted malts and dark chocolate bitterness. Then there is a slight sweetness of the cherry that comes in and balances the beer nicely. Im not a big stout fan but I could drink the hell out of this.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2005
Aroma has chocolate, malt, some coffee and a hint of molasses. Darkest brown, red at the edges, and a small toffee head. Flavour has cherry, subdued roast coffee. Light bodied, with some mild bitter notes. Pretty good. I think Id like to try this without the cherry.

Damico (3145) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours unclear dark coffee in color with a light cocoa head. The aroma is my favorite part, strong notes of cherry juice with some chocolate roastiness in the background. You get a bit of the cherry juice, roasted malts, and chocolate on the tongue too, but lighter in body as is for s single sweet stout.
