3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big dark brown body with a massive brown cap floating on top that is leaving thick rocky bubble creators behind as it slowly decays. Couldn’t wait for cap to go away to get the aroma so I just took a massive sip and all I hit was cherry with a chocolate kicker. Aroma way milder then I thought it would be, its really hard to find. Aroma does have (after a long, long wait) chocolate, hints of cherry, ash, and I think I can imagine I smell coffee. Taste is much better.......stronger. Hints of ash, chocolate, I can’t seem to find the cherry any more but I know its there. flavourless hops show up in the mildly bitter finish. Nail Yakupov tries to do to much with the puck instead of the nice easy pass....... cherry has returned but hidden under a almost burnt malt. Slight watery feel and taste but I’m being picky saying that. Earthy...sweet yet kind of tart....mild bitter finish.....easy to drink .......beer is milder then I thought it would be........ GO OILERS!!!!!!
Aroma and flavor is cherries/fruit, big chocolate/dark chocolate, dark malts, mild/medium dark fruit, Ommegang's stock ale yeast and a slightly sweet/tart finish. Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 24, 2016
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 (5003) - 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 (1962) - 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 (5161) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Pours near black with a lasting tan head.
S: Sweet; Dark chocolate stands out; hint of smoke.
T: seductive mix of chocolate, dark fruits and toasted grains. Excellent sweetness level for flavor profile.
M: full body; creamy smooth; very light bite at finish; well-chosen medium-low carbonation.
O: rich and flavorful, as well as very drinkable. Highly recommended. jw0406 (1299) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2015
