Way better than any chocolate cherry stout I have had before. No fake cherry taste. Good bitterness from the chocolate and not overly rich. Get a growler while you can.

Sample @ Beers of the Burgh Fest. Pours a dark brown with a huge amount of tan foam. Roasty aroma. Taste is a little too much on the coffee side with some chocolate and roasted malts and very little cherry flavor. Not as good as I had hoped for.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft during my bday lunch at Capones. Poured a dark brown light black medium body under an average sized foamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate cake batter, pudding, bread, dry chocolates and lits of roastiness. The body was a touch watery while the carbonation was made up of large aggresive bubbles which made it a bit foamy overall. Flavor of chocolate milk foam, bread, light touch of dark cherry and some pudding. Okay overall.

Growler @ RG 20. Brown. Smells a little of coffee, chocolate, and something like sticky mud. Tastes astringent plus roasty. Thin.

Richmond 20th, growler courtesy of Drake. Pours black with brown at edges, good initial head. Chocolate aroma, deep. Flavor is similar, a bit of dark fruit in the background. Lighter body than I expected, but nice.

Growler pour. Pours a black with thick mocha head and spotted lacing. Nose of roasted and chocolate malts and oats. Creamy mouthfeel but not an overly robust flavor. Taste similar to the aroma with banana, faint cherries, and lactose.

I had this at the bocktown monaca and let me tell you, it was much better than expected. I was thinking with the time since I really had a good EE and the present, perhaps commerciallity got the best of them but this is GOOD. Really nice black pour, what a beauty! Has mild sour cherry smelling choco moose looking head. Yummy roasted slight choco cherry olfactory. Initial taste bud impressions is milder roasted stout with a cherry ghost. Quite enjoyable. Mild and friendly, feels like an old friend! Mild sizzling co2 makes this interesting. Lacing like a thin bikini. Easy to like and easy to finsh. Goes down way too easy; heh! Its gone! Balderdash, lets get a real big pitcher of this. Lovely. My accolades to the brewers of EE!.
