3.25/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: This beer pours a dark black color with just a small amount of light coming through make red hues and it is topped with ¾” of off white head that leaves rather quickly.
Smell: The aroma of this beer is mainly a basic malt base with hints of roasted malt and chocolate.
Taste: The flavor is very tasty it is a nice blend of roasted malt and chocolate. Hints of cherry make for a tasty blend of flavors.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel of the beer is a bit of the thin side but overall it is a very good try at a hard to do flavor.

3.36/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours very dark brown with ruby highlights along the edges. A nice tan head slowly descends to a thin, lasting cap. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of mild cocoa nibs and a hint of cherry juice.

The taste is of sweet, slightly tart, cherry juice with cocoa and some roasted coffee notes. Mild roast and some medicinal (lozenges) notes in the finish.

It is on the thin side, but it is smooth. The carbonation is ample without being fizzy. Alcohol is well-covered.

Overall, it's not bad - just mild/restrained and cherry juice is slightly medicinal and overly sweet. Still, it has a decent stout backing and is easy enough to drink.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, red brown colored like cherry cola with a short tan head that dissipates quickly leaving little lacing, clear

S: slight smell of coffee an toasted malt, a little cherry and chocolate

T: sweet with only little flavors of cherry and bittersweet chocolate

M: thinner with low carbonation

O: not much of a stout, more of a sweety artificially flavored porter

2.91/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Cola black, but ruby shows through the light, barely. A mocha colored head actually holds up for a good while. Thick rings of foamy lacing.

Aroma: Very subdued, but if anything, a powdery chocolate emerges.

Taste: Can't quite pinpoint this, but a very dark fudge-like cocoa body with a bright medicinal cherry tart note, mostly in the finish. The cherry aspect is more citric and bitter than anything.

Mouthfeel: Very carbonated. Not as thin as expected.

Overall: Definitely inconsistent. Not nearly as poor as the BA average in my opinion, but regardless, not worth seeking out again.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 1.5

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

How cordial. (Get it?) Anyway, this stuff pours a clear garnet topped by a finger of glowing khaki foam. The nose comprises rye bread, dark fruit (though somehow not cherry), light nutmeg, and a vague sense of light booze. The taste is an abomination of medicinal "cherry" flavor, with what may or may not be construed as chocolate-flavored vinyl behind it. That's about as close as I can come to the pain inflicted here. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, this is a pretty sad excuse for a stout in general, much less an allegedly chocolate-cherry one. Yikes.
