4.23/5 rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours an opaque black with a tan head that dissipates into a thin ring of foam.
Dark chocolate, dark fruit, roast malt, and a hint of cherry form the aroma.
There's a strong cherry note underlying the flavor profile, which finishes fairly roasty and bitter. Chocolate is overwhelmed by cherry. There's a vanilla note in the finish.
Body is full, with minimal carbonation and significant alcohol warmth.
The vanilla and cherry and off-balanced bitter roast notes put this as my last fave of the biscotti I've tried. Great beer, but great competition.
Serving type: on-tap

4.3/5 rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Jet black, with a small ring of bubbles that doesn't cover the entire beer.
Aroma is coffee with a hint of vanilla.
Taste is a strong coffee stout, with a cherry aftertaste. A small amount of spiciness or tingling lingers on afterwards. Alcohol is definitely there, but not overwhelming.
Carbonation is just right, this beer 'feels' really good as you drink it.
Overall this is outstanding. The base coffee stout is already delicious, and the added cherry is there just enough to add to the brew. Cherry can be a tricky flavor, but this is nicely done and not overwhelming.

4.11/5 rDev -1%

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a half finger high dark tan head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dark bittersweet chocolate are present in the nose along with some hints of sour cherries.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of bitter chocolates along with notes of roasted malts and hints of sour cherries. Only faint bits of alcohol are perceptible.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer drinks a little more than an American Double/Imperial Stout compared to an American Porter given its fuller body and richness of the flavors but is still extremely easy to drink considering its strength as it hides its alcohol very well.
