on tap, pours dark, but reddish and semi transparent in the light, nice color.
smell is not overwhelming, but the cherries are noticeable
the head also has a reddish tint and the taste of the head is very cherry.
the bourbon comes through, but not intense or even as pronounced as with the other BBA Hellfighters (001 & 003).if you compare to those, it's similar, but not nearly as bold or thick. Although it may just be from the cherries cutting through. Whereas 001 & 003 were heavy porters that were more like stouts, this porter feels much lighter, like maybe a strong brown ale and is highly drinkable. Just the perfect amount of cherries, not overdone like 99% of other fruit beers. I could pretty much guzzle this porter anytime, they better make more of this stuff. outstanding!

Pours out a dark almost black with ruby highlights. Head is tan with a touch of pink. Booze is way too strong in the nose, but I like what's underneath it. Definitely get bourbon barrel and cherries with the porter backbone. I'd like a little less vanilla in the smell, but I guess that's barrel aging for you. What a pleasant surprise this beer is. I was expecting a sweet mess of flavors. I wasn't too big on 003, so that's where that is coming from. The cherries and bourbon character work so well together, and I get more of the base beer than what I did with 003. Nice chocolate notes throughout. Surprisingly not that boozy tasting, considering the nose. The mouthfeel could be smoother in terms of carbonation, and thicker for what the flavors bring. Almost thin considering what this beer brings to the plate, talking about taste. Overall, this is a tasty beer. I'm glad I got another one to squirrel away until Christmas. Let's see if it develops more.
