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.

I tried this beer after a decent amount of cellar time to it. Overall the beer was an enjoyable experience. The appearance was on par for the style as being dark black with thin tin lacing that remained after the pour. Smell was heavy roasted malts hint of cherry and vanilla . Taste was that of a very smooth stout with roasted tones and slight cherry tang to it but overall nice long finish and taste. Mouthfeel is medium with nice slick feel. Overall not sure how this beer compares to when was fresh as this was only bottle I had but I did enjoy the experience now as good solid stout collaboration not over some with cherry either.

Bottle from Capone's Restaurant, Mike's cellar. Pours black as coffee with about an eighth of an inch of light brown retained head, and lace gracing the glass all the way down. Roasty chocolate aroma. Above average mouthfeel, a rich aged taste and feel, however a little chalky. The cherry hits mid sip and builds over several sips. Very well integrated. Good drinkability for a higher abv drink. Dry and sweet finish.
