COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classic Baltic-style porter was brewed with black hulless barley, dark caramel malt, honey malt and a touch of smoked malt, and then aged on 90lbs of hand-pressed Willamette Valley cherries per 10-barrel batch. Flavored with natural chocolate, expect big chocolate and cocoa aroma and flavor, balanced by a sweet cherry flavor and finish. It’s dark as night, full-bodied and hopped enough to balance the rich malt and chocolate-cherry profile.

On tap at the Lincoln City BP Very dark brown with nonheqd or lacing. Chocolate malts and some dark cherry coming through. Thin and fairly dry not very Baltic more of a dark brown ale. Clean dry finish.

Wonderfully dark pour with a medium, though persistent, head trailing down the glass. Smells of chocolate malt with sweet cherry. Not surprisingly the chocolate flavor persists and you get the cherries on top. Nice and solid.

Incredible cherry base, very good notes without being saccharine, the chocolate notes are a little muted and dry, hops are quite nice in balance in the finish.

On tap at Rusty Truck Brewing, pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out rich cherries and chocolate - like a decadent dessert. Flavour is similar, bringing out a decadent mix of cherries and chocolate - very fruity and chocolatey. Sweet, but not even close to cloying. Really great stuff I must say.

Holiday Ale Festival 2012 - Dark brown in color, thin tan head. Nice dark malt porter flavor and aroma. Chocolate and cherry flavors throughout the beer. Very good beer.

With the aroma of sweet chocolate and cherries, this beer couldn’t be any better. It’s thick, frothy head and red - chocolaty dark color easily makes it my favorite. Chocolate is the dominate flavor but cherries are defiantly present. I paired it with brownies and served it at 55 degrees. WOW!!!

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Taster at Holiday Ale Fest. Is almost identical to a spiked hot chocolate, with a hint of cherry. Really delicious. Also had on draught at Roadhouse 101. Even better the second time.
