Fruit in the nose, yet not quite cherry, more current fruit? Malt mixes and is quickly overtaken by cherry and a tinge of alcohol. As the cherry fades chocolate and malt sweetness rush in to the void before a slight cherry resurgence. XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
On tap at Henry's. Pours almost black, tan cap. Aroma of cherries, milk, medicine, chocolate. Taste is sweet, and a touch sour. Creamy, oily, and late dry finish. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2014
On nitro at Imperial Bottle Shop & Taproom. Pitch black color with muddy tan head. Aroma is deep dark cherry with a hint of roasted malt. Taste is dark cherry, espresso, dark chocolate, and roasted malt. Only the note of bitterness in the aftertaste keeps the rating from being even higher. mikem409 (2022) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Tap. Pours black tan head. Big tart cherry chocolate aroma. Taste is medium body sweet coco and tart finish. Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
This was a stout to remember with lots of roasted malted character coming through in both the flavour an aroma and sweet cherries complementing quite well. Drinks better than a 7.2% beer!

Tap at Walking Man, Stevenson, 24/05/13.
Mid black with a medium tan head that retains well.
Nose is cherries, dark chocolate, dark malt, light roast.
Taste comprises black forest gateux, light roast, mineral bite, sugars.
Medium bodied with fine carbonation, light roasty finish backed up with sugars.
Ok if a little on the sweet side. ACHops (1566) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2013
On tap @ the brewpub in Stevenson. Pours thick inky black with big mocha head. Aroma is sweet cherries and a bit of chocolate. Taste is rich dark roasty malts followed by big sweet cherry flavors. Notes of chocolate and espresso on the finish. Rich, heavy mouthfeel. Definitely not one of those subtle fruit beers, lots of cherry flavor here. Probably not for everyone, but a nice respite from much milder versions that are common. Worth seeking out if you are in the vicinity. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - FEB 12, 2013
On tap. Black pour with a brown head. Scent is fruity with roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is cherries to the point of being medicinal. jimdeohio (4) - Amherst, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2013 does not count
When I travel to Portland, I try to go to Henry’s to specifically drink this awesome beer. The taste is great and it is strong enough to get your attention baraciisch (3163) - California, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Aroma of black cherries and roasted malts... Deep black in color... Flavor has significant black cherry notes, kind of artificial tasting... Decent
