UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 smells a little like cherry, a little like coffee, though the latter is much more prevalent. Palate cimes off a little thin, not a huge body here. Pours black with big head that dies down quick. On tap at volos terrybail (704) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
On tap at Milos Craft Beer emporium London Ontario
Looks watery for a stout
The aroma has slight cherry and chocolate in it
A little subdued for me but still pretty good

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 Iíd like to try this without the cherry.

2007 Version , fresh cask. Pours brown with good top.
Felt much richer than old 06 version . Plenty of chocolate, roasted malts less so cherry.
Old: Sweet brown malts dominate this scene, hint of euro continental hops behind.
Full , matured dark ale. Good , full bodied . For Starbucks lovers think of Raspberry Mocha but with cherry accents. Great improvement vs. batch one. Good brew.
Clean slightly vinous . Pleasant, neat woody bitter touches. Late fruit finish. Brewmasters excellence and detail oriented techniques are well shown. Almost perfect as dunkel goes just a bit boring / mainstream .
Very dark and thick in colour and head. Rich toasty malts and hints of cherry and chocolate. Sweet malty flavour with a very light cherry and chocolate aftertaste. Quite nice, but not the best stout Iíve had. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - SEP 6, 2007
12 oz bottle shared with toncatcher. Nice dark pour with decent tan head. Some Chocolate and cherry on the aromas. Smelled like weak cordial cherries. Flavor fell way off for me though. Flavors were still there, but just didnít hit me the way the aromas did. Funny finish that didnít really seem to belong to this beer. Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2008
On tap at Beer Bistro in Toronto. From memory as I had this a few months ago. I was disappointed with the lack of flavour and body. Faint aroma of chocolate. Black with tan head. Flavour was cherry chocolate but not as intense as I was hoping, not very rich and not much body. GMCC2181 (1608) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle from Matt7215! Pours a black color, small head, smell of coffee and roasted malt. Flavor is the same, roasted malt, coffee but a lingering sweetness (cherry) in the aftertaste. Medium texture for a stout. Not bad but nothing special eithier. Thanks again Matt! godofsky (274) - Montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2010
tasted at the mondiale de la biŤre in Montrťal. pours black with a thin brown head. aroma is dark chocolate and a bit of cherries. taste is choclate, coffee, and cherries with a slight hops finish. the downside of this beer is the mouthfeel. too watery. not bad, but not at all great.
