A: Pours a clear but opaque jet black in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some light amounts of dark amber highlights. The beer has a half finger tall dark tan head that slowly reduces to a large patch of very thin film with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted chocolate malts, cocoa, and lactose along with a very light hint of cherry (which intensifies as the beer warms up).
T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of roasted malts with milk chocolate, lactose sweetness, cocoa, and just a hint of vanilla. Cherry flavors intensify as the beer warms up and become more pronounced in the finish.
M: Medium bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.
O: This beer is pretty easy to drink and the alcohol is pretty well hidden by the sweetness from the lactose. Several people mentioned a taste of robitussin but I do not get any of that medicinal cherry, maybe it has faded with the age - cherry flavors in general are pretty reserved.
