3.91/5  rDev +3.2%

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #63 (Apr 2012):

LOOK: Pitch black, amazing coffee-colored cream head with legs

SMELL: Chocolate cake batter, roastiness, faint cherries

TASTE: Silky smooth, rich, slightly tart, mild cherry, dark ripe fruits, soft caramel, light roasty char, sweet and tangy molasses, coin, chocolate, rye, biscuit, nuts, earth, tannic, dry finish

There’s a lot going on here, but what stands out is the use of blackstrap molasses, red tart and dark, sweet cherry purée, a California lager yeast strain and cocoa nibs from Patric Chocolate at the end of conditioning. The lager yeast strain is what makes it a Baltic Porter, but a Stout too? While it’s slightly confusing to have two styles on the label, who cares?! Complex, surprisingly balanced and damn tasty.

On tap at the Holy Grail Pub in Plano.

The beer pours a reddish-brown color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of strong hot chocolate notes with not too much else coming through. While the cherries are absent in the aroma, they are up front in the flavor. There is a little bit of chocolate in the aroma, but overall I think the beer tastes a little bit medicinal. The body a little bit thinner than I like and the carbonation is about medium. Overall, the beer was not bad but was a little disappointing. I think this is a step down from the regular Double Brown Stout.

Served on tap at The Holy Grail Pub in Plano, TX.

A: Pours a midnight black with a finger tall light mocha head. Great head retention (hardly any reduction through the drinking of an entire pint) and massive amounts of lacing.

S: Dark roasted and burnt malts with hints of chocolate, cherry, and coffee. Very intense.

T: Bittersweet chocolate followed by dark roasted malts, cherries, and a light smokiness from burnt malts. There are also some extremely slight hints of nuts.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Nice and creamy.

O: Big smell and big flavor really make this beer great - not a disappointment after hearing a lot of folks in the bar talk it up. Quite enjoyable and could probably even be sessionable if one paced themselves. The cherry does not dominate but is a wonderful companion to the other flavors in the beer. I would definitely get it again if I found it.
