3.33/5 rDev -3.5%
Cola-black beer, far from opaque with no head at all. Mild nose reveals little - just wispy notes of coffee and chocolate and a bit of tobacco. I'm not getting any cherry. There is also a sort of stale tone to it. Pleasantly sweet, and the cherries make this a bit different, like an understated cherry cordial. Lush and malty with chocolate and brown sugar flavors, but well balanced with burnt bitterness and citric hops with a dry finish. Mild and not quite as stout as I like my stouts.

Stout with smoked malt and cherries.
Brownish head, abundant and dense. And very persistent.
The color is quite dark, almost black, with brownish reflexes. Carboanted appearance, for a stout.
In the smell a strange mix beetween smoked, cherries and a quite strong hopping for a stout. Chocolate notes. Velvety.
The taste is cocoa, chocolate, cherries, smoked. Absolutely original. Maybe more porter than stout (beside the cherries and the smoked...).
Strange, original, but intriguing. Herbal and musky hop. Interesting.
In the aftertaste cherrie, smoked, cinder. Hop bitter notes, quite long.
