I definately enjoyed this brew. Although maybe it is better described as a fruit beer or speciatly beer. Black in color with a nice one inch head. Aroma is mostly black cherry, tart and sweet. The flavor is all black cherry with a good bitternesss to it. It is the black cherry dominance that I really enjoyed. The flavor and aroma improve as it warms. I sampled a pint but I will definately get the larger size next time, and make more extensive notes.
Had back when. In vegas. Cherry aroma with some roasted aroma as well. Taste bitter roast and cherry cola. On tap nice carbonation. May be Bette on nitrogen. Travlr (26130) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 31, 2014

Aroma is like black coffee. Poured black in color with a tan head. Cherry flavors meet coffee flavors.

Pours red-tinged black. Sweet cherry aroma with a hint of spice. Palate is bitter and full-bodied, neither fruity nor sweet, with a black cherry flavor. Very well balanced. Really fantastic.

Smells really good, just like black cherries, imagine that. Flavor is sweet cherry, with a bit of stoutness to the body and some dark chocolate notes as well. Really okay as a change of pace Christmas-time beer. BeerandBlues2 (13823) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
GABF 2011. Pours opaque with a medium-small, bubbly tan head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is an amazing cherry nose, dark chocolate, and cherry skin. Flavor is dark chocolate cherry cordial and a dry finish. The roast malt really dries this one out. Medium body and carbonation, low warmth.

I found my notes from visiting this brewery during my honeymoon in 7/2003. Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a black color with a large tan head. The aroma was tart black cherry. The flavor was tart and sweet cherries with a sweetish malty base and a long cherry finish. Our favorite of the bunch! BelgianBeerGal (4159) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Overall nice, but nothing spectacular. Seemed a little disjointed. The aroma and beginning of the flavour were more gentle notes with some black cherry meat, bitter chocolate and roasted malt but the finish was a fairly burnt, bitterness like a dry stout.

On draft at Triple 7 brewpub in Vegas. Dark pour. Light smell of cherries. Creamy mouthfeel, with a taste of cherries and chocolate. Mild finish. Overall well balanced and decent.
