Glass Used: Becker pint

Appearance: I would have pegged the color as deep dark brown-black if I wasn't sitting near a lamp which allowed the body to glow a deep dark garnet along the bottom of the glass. The head was a thick two finger high mocha colored cloud. Lacing was present when the glass was swirled however there were no lingering remnants during consumption.

Smell: Roasted malts, dark bittersweet chocolate, mineral notes and a yeasty bread. I get a decent amount of ethanol vapor as well. When the beer is a bit chilly, only the faintest hint of cherry is there just as you finish inhaling. However, as the porter warms the sweet-tart cherry aroma becomes a bit more prominent.

Taste: Roasted malts are up front, followed by smooth black coffee and bittersweet chocolate, finishing with a mild dark cherry flavor. As the beer warms, I get more of the sweet-tart cherry profile. I noticed that between tastes, you get a lingering cocoa nib and Bing cherry flavor. I really dig this.

Mouthfeel: Creamy with a bit of pucker from the fresh tart cherries dancing around after the finish. Carbonation is medium-high.

Overall: I've heard mixed things about this beer for so long, I wasn't certain what to expect. I had the flavor profile already put together in my head, thinking it was going to be sweet like a chocolate covered cherry (the ones with the gooey fondant filling around the fruit). Boy was I wrong. The cherry profile is of fresh and dried cherries with rich bittersweet chocolate. This reminds of a Harry & David Dark Chocolate Covered Bing Cherry - the ones with just chewy dried cherry and chocolate..with an added twist of fresh cherry tartness. The cherry flavors does not hit you over the head but it's there and quite enjoyable. Also, let this beer warm up considerably to get those wonderful cherry flavors. If you are looking for a maraschino cherry and milk chocolate flavored beer then this is not for you.
