Had reservations on this based on how EBC throws the word ’bomb’ around (their Hop Bomb lacked any sort of hop aroma/flavor). This, however, is perfectly balanced, has a milk chocolaty creamy body, and just enough cherry aroma/flavor. The higher alcohol is not at all noticeab on the palate, but you do feel it after a couple. I wouldn’t change a thing about this outstanding beer!
Bottle at BBF. Black colour with beige head. Cocoa powder aroma. Sweet, cocoa, chocolate taste. Medium body. jflopsu (1594) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Pours a dark black with dark brown head. A sweet chocolate and light cherry aroma - ice cream like. A sweet chocolate and cherry taste - like and ice cream or toosie pop. A sweet lingering chocolate and cherry aftertaste. thedm (6148) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2017
This draft brew from the brewery was served at a cool temperature and poured a head of foamy finely sized brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind no visible carbonation opaque black brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The excellent strong aroma of cherries and chocolate with a brown male backing is excellent! The semi-flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering chocolate aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of cocoa toffee vanilla chocolate brown malt and cherry. Delicious and one I would certainly recommend trying. ffaoe (780) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2016

12 oz bottle. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, toast, chocolate covered cherries and marshmallows. Body is full, creamy and smooth. Taste is of nutty, roasted malt, chocolate, cherries, cacao and some herbal hops. Finish is long and semi-sweet. Dangerously easy drinking, good, dessert beer. coolfunnj (374) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2016

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2016 Sweet chocolate and cherry aroma. Dark brown/black or with a dark team had that fades super quickly. Medium flat body. Taste is solid with sweet chocolate and just enough cherry to know it’s there without dominating. Solid overall. pressboxjoe (454) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle found at Wegman’s in Mount Laurel. Tastes like chocolate cherry ice cream. I’ve got to find more of this. dmac (6211) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2016
12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a super dark Tootsie Roll brown with a small foamy dark beige head. Aroma is brownie batter, chocolate icing, light cherry fruitiness, muffin mix, cake. Flavor has some dark cherry juice on the front that quickly is taken over by brownie batter, burnt chocolate cake, vanilla extract. Medium body, strong bubbly carbonation, average duration on the aftertaste which is bitter and slightly sweet. Meh....
