12 oz bottle- Pours almost black with red highlights and a one finger light tan head. Aroma is all chocolate covered cherries, like taking a whiff of Maraschino cherry dipped in decadent chocolate. The taste is less dramatic than the aroma, more balanced which i think In this case is a good thing, Maraschino cherries, chocolate, less sweet than the aroma led on. Dessert in a glass! cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2014
On tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a fairly clear reddish brown appearance with a brown head. Maraschino cherry x20, chocolate, light vanilla, tart aroma. Flavor is more subdued but still very good. Tart black cherry, caramel, cookie flavor. Very similar to Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat in terms of the cherry. Great. EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JAN 17, 2014
The color is an opaque brown with a large tan head that fades somewhat quickly although a thin layer does stick around, and the indulgent aroma blends chocolate malts, cocoa, and a heavy level of cherries. The taste fuses a high level of umami with a mild sweetness and touch of chocolately bitterness, and the palate is a very pleasant fusion chocolatey finish, medium body, thick texture, and a soft carbonation beaz1591 (238) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Flute. Great cherry and chocolate odor. Pours an almost black color but has little head. Awesome malty mouth feel. Really tasty beer but I think I could only drink one at a time. BobbyAnalog (334) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Pulverized chocolate and tenderized cherry flesh, there is none better. Aromatic utopia and a malty, decadent mouthfeel. The perfect dessert beer after a hearty, uneven cut of turkey breast and a dollop of mashed potatoes christens your stomach. Hang up those hops and hardbarked masculinity at the door and enjoy.

Rich aroma of sweet cherries and milk chocolate. It pours a rich deep black color. It starts of with a nice tart cherry taste, combined with a creamy milk chocolate that is not too sweet. It also has a really nice mouthful. I agree this could be better if it added a nutty flavor, sweet cherry start but sour finish, and a higher alcohol content. However even without this its really really good. Stuedmaster (352) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Oh yeah, this is some good stuff. Excellent aroma of chocolate and cherries, rich but not overbearing. Taste is a good balance between sweet and bitter, with the chocolate coming through nicely while still tasting like a beer. I could drink this on a regular basis, not just the holidays. Even people that don’t normally like beer may like this one. SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2013

quiet down dribble lip!
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Great cherry scent and taste. mixes well with the chocolate tones. Small brown head fades quickly, very dark in color. Not able to see through it in a pint glass even when held up to the light. Absolutely delicious. Was expecting a little thicker mouth feel judging by color...... but does not subtract from how good it is. SilentJo (68) - Chocowinity, North Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Dark pour with a beautiful reddish tint. Smells distinctly of cherries with a very slight chocolate hint. Taste is about the same, with a nice smooth cherry taste at first sip followed up with a mild to moderately tart finish.
