Poured from bomber into tulip during #bottlecherwednesdays at Beachwood BBQ. Nearly black in color with brown highlights at the edges and a tan head. Smell is cocoa, roast coffee, medicinal cherry, and hints of booze. Taste is sweet chocolate and toffee, followed by hop, coffee, and tart cherry bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, semi-dry finish.

First review here from a longtime rater! Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a snifter.

A: looks like a stout. Dark, dark brown; maybe even black. Small 1/4 inch light brown head even after a vigorous twirl and pour. Lacing really grips to the glass.

S: Again, a lot like a stout. Bitter, dark chocolate, with a liiiitle cherry in there.

T: Nice sour cherry aftertaste, as advertised. Lots of flavor you would expect in an imperial stout. Bitterness, a tiny bit of coffee, a lot of chocolate all mixed together.

F: Very smooth. Definitely a tad thinner than a stout, because it's a porter after all.

O: A very, very good beer. Personally not a big fan of the cherry, but would drink again if it were a tad cheaper—I paid $16.99 for this bomber.

Lots of bitter chocolate, some cocoa, dark fruits and almonds. Super dry. Not sure if there is supposed to be sour cherries in this but I don't taste any sourness. Very smooth, low carb, short finish. More dark fruit flavor started to come out as it warmed considerably.

A: poured into a snifter to a solid black beer with a half finger of dense tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing
S: smells of coffee, chocolate, a little almond, a slight cherry aroma and some roasted malts
T: taste is coffee, sour cherry, roasted malts, chocolate, almond, slight burnt sugar and charred wood. swallow is roasted malt, charred wood, coffee, bitter dark chocolate and more cherry
M: this beer is full bodied in the mouth, velvety smooth with soft carbonation and a slightly dry finish
O: A nice twist on an already great beer. faantastic flavors and the cherry is subtle instead of being over the top. If you like imperial biscotti break there's no reason you shouldn't enjoy this beer.
