750ml bottle. Poured a black color with red edges and a small sized off white head. Oily body. By water rinse after I drank this, looked darker than some pale lagers! Chocolate and more chocolate. Sweet. Bourbon, marshmallows, and vanilla. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 26, 2013
750mL shared at Woodshop 8. Pure ink pour like most CCB stouts, thinner reddish foam. Nose at first is pure soy sauce...moves to something pretty nice like thick black cherry pit. Taste is pure sugar, some ash, mild sour cherry as it warms. Takes a lot of warming and oxidation to really bring out the aroma. One2remeber (247) - Bucktown, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Rich bourbon, cherry, not dominate, let's you enjoy the malts.
Slight sweetness cut by a remote bourbon aspect.
As rich as it gets, cherry chocolate. Sleeper beer, ultra smooth. knickskicks (1162) - - OCT 26, 2013
Tap. Pours black, brown head that goes away quickly. Nose is big cherres, sweet and tart, some chocolate, some barrel. Taste is huge sweet and tart cherries, saccharine sweetness, some chocolate, smoothness from the barrel but very little bourbon in the taste, even as it warms. Viscous syrupy mouthfeel. smith4498 (3646) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours black with light brown head. Roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon and cherry flavors with a hint of coffee. Big sweet chocolate and cherry flavors with bourbon and roasted malts. Full body with minimal carbonation.

Old rate, sweet cherries and dark chocolate, a bit much on the sweetness, not bad. portableparty (2350) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours oily black with a hue of red and shows a thin tan head that dissipates fast. Aroma has nice bourbon cherry chocolate faint coffee and marsh mellow. Taste is sweet and warming with nice chocolate bourbon cherry really smooth and awesome. Palate is full oily sticky and warming, but very well hidden. Fucking Awesome!!!

Bottle shared by Portableparty - thanks!! Dark black pour, just a hint of tan head, slight red hue on the edge. Huge chocolate nose. Lovely taste, huge chocolate, big cherry and big booze. Awesome. wisdomsolo (466) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Aroma of chocolate was nice but the flavor was too hot. Couldn’t taste any of the ingredients until the beer warmed up. Then it was hot with a hint chocolate and cherries. Disappointed. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2013
this one definitely needs to warm up before its drunk, as cold you get nowhere near the cherry or cocoa flavors. a great sweet stout worth the hype for the most part.
