Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light cherry with limited residual sugars notes and some black chocolate is really interesting. Taste is also a very nice mix of light cherry notes with some good black chocolate notes with a lightly sweet finish. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Quite enjoyable overall but I was expecting a bit more cherry notes to this beer.

Had this last night during our "Night of a Thousand Stouts" beer party my wife and I hosted. It smelled good, could detect the chocolate and cherry notes, the look was a little watery and thin, same with the overall mouthfeel. While it did deliver the chocolate covered cherry flavor I was expecting, it wasn't as good as the Ten Fidy we had just sampled right before it.

2011 bottling. Served slightly chilled into a tulip glass.
Cherry Chocolate Stout is very dark brown on the pour and nearly black in the glass. It has thin tan head that settles quickly to a skim layer.
Aroma is sweet and roasty with hints of cherry and chocolate.
Flavor is more bold in the cherry character but still has a rich robust stout base beer. There is more bitterness than sweetness which is unexpected given the name. Chocolate is there as is the vanilla but it never drinks like a dessert beer.
Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with a little more carbonation than a beer of this style really needs.
Overall a decent flavored stout but not outstanding.
