4.4/5 rDev -2.9%
Pours oily black with a creamy brown head that leaves decent lacing throughout. The aroma is loaded with luscious, lightly tangy cherries and thick chocolate that follow up with figs, molasses, malt and vanilla. Those aromatic qualities are then followed up by a sweet flavor with some more chocolate, cherries, malt sugar, and mild alcohol. Full bodied with good carbonation. This is a very good lightly chewy beer that exhibits modest warmth, rich chocolate, ripe cherries - indulgent and decadent, yet still well balanced!

Bottle from Proof. Poured into a snifter. Pitch black and opaque. Deep brown head with same collar. Decent legs, and head was thick and yummy. Aroma is of sweet/dark cherries, dark chocolate, vanilla, a smooth/woody bourbon. Taste is wonderful. Exact same as smell. Mouthfeel is viscous, fully coats my mouth, and is exactly what I want. Super fantastic beer. Dessert in a glass!

Poured from bottle into small tasting glass. I am sharing with two other buddies. Date of review is 7/12/14.
Appearance- Almost jet black, but not quite. Dark brow head that disappears right away.
Smell- Cherry and vanilla blast off straight away. Just a hint of sweet chocolate is present too. Bourbon is detectable, but taking a backseat to the cherries.
Taste- Literally perfect in every way. Just like in the nose, cherries and vanilla take you away. Chocolate and bourbon are there, but not dominant.
Mouthfeel- Thick and luxurious to say the least. It's really quite hard to put into words how amazing this beer is. It's like I bit into a chocolate covered cherry.
Overall- Top three best beers I have ever had. I had it at DLD for the first time and have looked forward to this moment ever since.
