This is, hands down, the best cherry stout I’ve ever tasted. Poured at a good temperature with a decent sized, tan, foamy, frothy, sudsy, head with brown highlights that lasts a while and lots of lace. Color is an almost opaque ruby red. Aroma is lots of roast, natural cherry, malt, cocoa, coffee, toffee, vanilla, caramel. Flavor’s like nose, abosutley perfectly balanced and aesthetically pleasing blend of sweet, bitter, carbonic and sour cherry tang. Usually, for me, cherry clashes with the bitterness and tang at some point; not this one. Body is not soft, but not coarse, has some high point that are expected from sour cherry - to me perfect and ditto carbonaton. Finish is very long and boozy. Incredible beer.

Smooth and creamy with an overwelhming taste of chocolate and cherry. Very dark and warm... It smells, looks and taste like XMas

Botella de 500ml. Vaso Tumbler. Saboreada en dic´11. Color ruby oscuro. Espuma beige rojiza de espuma pequeña que crea una corona cremosa y de capa amplia. Copos y collares abundantes. Aromas de maltas tostadas dulces, malta caramelo, frutos rojos y notas de chocolate en nariz. La entrada es increíble: como un caramelo de chocolate y cereza que explota en la boca, seguido por maltas tostadas dulces en el paladar. Un ligero amargor subyacente, en el intermedio, nos recuerda que se trata de una cerveza. Permanece hasta el final como una infusión de chocolate afrutado. Agradable azucarado y bien equilibrado ABV. Matices de cerezas. Cuerpo pleno y carbonatación suave. Malteado dulce y moderado lúpulo en el retrogusto. ¡ Feliz Navidad !, ¿no os parece?. 500ml bottle. Tumbler glass. Enjoyed on dec´11. Deep ruby color. Reddish beige, small bubbled froth creates a thick layer creamy crown. Copious spots & collars. Sweet toasted malts, caramel malt, red fruits & chocolate notes to the nose. Unbelievable upfront: like a chocolate&cherry candy explodes in mouth followed by sweet toasted malts on to the palate. An slightly underlying bitterness shows it´s a beer in the middle. It lingers through into the finish like a fruity chocolate infusion. Nice sugary & well balanced ABV. Hints of cherries. Full body, soft carbonation. Sweet malty & mildy hoppy aftertaste. Merry Xmas !, ain´t it?

[email protected] - pours a black beer with a modest foam retention; deep aroma of black cherries, chewy malts, licorice and black chocolate; a fair sweetness and a robust malt backbone, moderate carbonation; pretty thick and gently sticky; long aftertaste of licorice and black cherries again; lingering roasted chocolatey notes - an unusual profile for a great beer

PhillyCraft (8202) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2012
Bottle with friends, compliments of James. Pours a dark purple. Beige cream head. Aromas of squashed cherries, chocolate, beemster, cinnamon, and sour cherry. Taste was a perfectly balanced chocolate covered cherry profile with tons of delicious malt and vanilla in the back end. This beer was rad.
