A deep dark stout with a thick creamy moka head. A very pleasant aroma of coffee, chocolate and cherry blossom. In mouth, a nice light roasted coffee with bitter chocolate, light to medium bodied, well balanced. On tap at C’est What, March 21, 2009. robinvboyer (4814) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2009
On Tap At C’est What? A deep black pour, nice aroma of roasted malt, and dark chocolate, with a very subtle, but still there, sweet cherry. Flavor is more of a stout, but a well made one. The cherry is there in the aroma, but i can’t really detect it much more anywhere else. All in all though, a nice drinking stout. MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2009
Bottle sample thanks to Milos- A deep brown pour with a frothy mocha cap. Nose of fresh cherries and dark chocolate, coffee, some roasted malts. Tastes sweet, of dark chocolate with some anise and pit fruits. FInishes with bitter coffee/chocolate and a pleasing cherry aftertaste. Very good. Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2009
Draught: Pours jet black, nice browner-than-average foamy head on top. Aroma is quite roasty, dark chocolate and just a hint of those promised cherries. Great sweet malty chocolate flavour, mild cherries, perhaps a little cinnamon? Very well done, I’d been looking forward to this for a while and loved the opportunity to finally try it. strowlands8 (278) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2010
Pours black, small brown head with lots of lacing. Aroma is lots of roasted malt with some coffee and just a small hint of cherry. Taste is similar with some tart sweetness as from the cherries. A little over carbonated, and little un-intense flavourwise, but still quite good.

341ml bottle from the brewery. Black pour with a tan head. Some far off roastyness in the aroma, and some up front fruityness. Tastes like an average stout, until you hit the tart finish which must be from the cherries. Very nice beer. BTofthe4Bros (20) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2010
Appearance - body is a very dark brown/near black, off-white head fades quickly. Aroma - nose is nice and roasty, notable chocolate, creamy candy, ground coffee, bitter fruits. Palate/Flavour - body is full, medium-light, slick to start and tangy towards the end, again quite roasty, prominent coffee, bitter chocolate, tart cherry, cloying finish with bitter cherry and coffee.

Thanks to Josh for sharing this bottle. Pours a deep black with a medium creamy tan head that laced. Aroma of you guessed it, cherries and chocolate. Actually a nice tart cherry nose. Also getting some caramel and lightly roasted malt character. Flavor of again the cherry meets chocolate mix. The cherry is kind of a tart pit cherry and the chocolate is kind of dark chocolate. Nicely done. Spab (4236) - 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.

Cask at C’est What. Deep black pour topped by a tight creamy head. The aroma is lovely. Rich cocoa, dark chocolate and light roast. Similar palate with just a touch of tartness that I can only assume is from the cherry. Not a whole lot of fruitiness or real cherry flavour. It’s nice, but I don’t think I’d peg it as a fruit- flavoured beer.
