Split several ways while waiting in line at Darkness Day 2013.

Cigar City Stouts always look great. Black as can be with a silky oily look.

Aroma is baker's chocolate and sweet cherry notes highlighted by a boozy effervescence. Not as bourbon forward as some, but it is very complimentary.

Tastes of bitter dark chocolate and slightly tart cherry interact well together. The beer is very sweet but manages to stay away from cloying, however was glad to share the bottle. Bourbon booze is present but like the nose not particularly dominant. The cherry comes across as very natural, not artificial or medicinal at all.

Full mouthfeel. Medium carb.

Really a treat of a beer.
