4.11/5 rDev -9.3%
A nice brew, a good depth to it for a sweet stout.
Pours a jet black with a tan head and no lacing. Pretty solid look. The smell starts off with a heavy whisp bourbon and barrel, but then another sniff opens up to the cocoa, a nice unexpected smokiness, roast, vanilla, and malt.
The taste follows suit with notes of sweet espresso, lactose sugar, acrid cherry, cocoa, a bit of oak, and again a slight smokiness. Nice refined balance to it all....feel is decent but sort of thin mouthfeel, less burn than I expected.
A good but not great beer, it's not super notable but very solid.

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.
