3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
March 30, 2016 - at Bar Hop (BrewCo) - on draught. Black pour, thick and lasting light brown head. Aroma is sour cherry with mid-level roast chocolate malt and alcohol; simple and appealing. Love that taste - follows the aroma, but as it warms I get raspberry seed bitterness and herbal bitterness; oak? Solid body, quite acidic, mild carbonation with a reasonably long dry tingly coating tart finish ... sour cherry is my take-away from this one, it's great.
Bottle, sent by Robbie, shared at game night. Very carbonated, dark mahogany with a tan head. Aroma and flavour both suggest powdery cherry candy, with dark bitter roast and mildly tangy acidity. Perfumey character overall and aggressive carbonation detract from the overall result, but still enjoyable. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2016
Tête folle sur cette robe que j’imagine presque noire. Le nez de cerises et de framboises ne laisse pas aux malts la chance de s’exprimer de façon nette et précise. Les saveurs fruitées montrent un sucre naturel et un caractère suret qui vont de pair. Des notes de chocolat accompagnent le tout. En bouche, le liquide est plutôt mince avec une texture crémeuse. La finale est légèrement surette. mabel (10068) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
[8520-20160625] Tap. Fragrant black juicy cherry bomb and cigarette smoky-but-clean car air freshener aroma. Dark black-brown body with a big long-lasting foamy tan head. Soured juicy fruity cherries flavour. Medium-full body is quite sour and bold. Very tasty as the glass goes on. (7/4/8/4/16) 3.9

(Stone City Tap Takeover @ Volo, Toronto, ON)
2016-06-25. Black body, modest creamy tan head fades. 3++ Aroma is quite fruity, almost syrupy cherry and raspberry character, muted dark malt. Flavour is similarly fruit dominant, syrupy raspberry sits heavily. Lightly tangy sour undertones. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Nice but bombastic. 7/3-4/7/3-4/14+ On tap at Stone City Tap Takeover at Volo, Toronto, ON.

On tap at Volo. Pours a very dark brown with large light tan head with decent lace. Aroma is raspberry, chocolate, roast and other berry. Flavour is also nice combo of tart berry and roast with raspberry and chocolate as well as some strawberry and cherry. Bit of booziness in the finish. Impressive.

A deep dark reddish brown stout with a thick frothy brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with cherry blossoms, light lactic notes, alcohol warmth, very nice. In mouth, a bitter herbal chocolate with grassy hops, light mineral notes, lactic acid notes, tart cherry, cough syrup, alcohol warmth, interesting but reminds me too much of Benylin. Bottle at OttBottShare April 2016. Sammy (13265) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
On tap at bar volo. Sour comes througj at cellar temperature. Cherry raspberry once it warms. TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
On tap at Volo. Really unique aroma. Raspberry liqueur. Amazing complex flavour. Raspberry, chocolate milk, sour cherries, (more sour than cherries), a bit of roast. Really, really complex and good. blankboy (7968) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
[Draught at Bar Hop 2] Pours a dark amber-brown with an average size semi-lasting frothy tan head and some lacing. Really nice aroma of cherries, raspberries and chocolate along with roasted malt and light coffee. Flavour follows and is just as nice. A bit of alcohol but fairly well hidden. Average bitter roasty bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Really nice stuff.
