Bottle thanks to Longshot. Dark brown with an off-brown topper. Aroma is big an yeasty with dark fruit, candi sugar, mild coffee and lightly roasted malt. Taste is sweet and yeasty with dark fruit, chocolate and candi sugar.
Poured from a 750ml bottle. Chocolaty, ester filled aroma. This is a tasty, malty chocolate beer, the Belgian yeast character is subtle, yet it is prominent enough to be noticeable. Nice beer. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Medium amber colored, with aromas of roasted malts and slightly fruity. Chocolate/coffee flavor but there is a lingering cherry after taste. A very good porter. zgaier (1951) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2016

Bottle (750ml): dark with thin tan head. Some chocolate aroma. Medium plus carbonation. Light bodied. Taste was some Belgium yeast with some fruitiness and slight chocolate. A little too thin though. emusche (209) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2016 Pours deep brown. Aromas is basically just cocoa and cherry, but not in a simple or overloaded way; still very complex and perfectly balanced. Taste is awesome: an incredible combo of dark chocolate, cocoa, and cherry that manages to be both sweet but tart and walks that line very well. Very, very good; wish it wasn’t retired. Edit: I asked Ommegang about it in March and was informed there are no plans to bring it back. :( ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone chinchill (4937) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Pours near black with a lasting tan head.

Lovely dark black pour with a foamy khaki head. Beautiful nose of sweet milk chocolate and light roasted black malts with a dose of sweet cherries. Smooth and rich and deep flavor that feautures dark roastiness and semisweet chocolate flavors, sweet cherries underneath, no bitterness and a wee bit of smokey black malt. Sweet and complex and just enough cherries to be playful, neither tart or cloying.
