3.8/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Typical dark stout with some clearness around the edges. No head, no matter what I do, I see bubbles but no head forms.

S: 100% cherries and maybe...plastic? No nevermind its burnt milk chocolate. Alcohol hangs in the background.

T: Chocolate covered cherries, through and through. Same syrupy sweet tartness along with chocolate. Either that or cherry soda with chocolate syrup in it. I like it, but definitely on the sweet side.

M: Carbonation works here, but for most stouts I would say its lacking. Mouthfeel is thin at first but then turns syrupy.

D: This is very interesting along side the Short's Black Cherry Porter. This was way more straight forward with the cherry flavor, but at the same time still managed to work. It was a little too sour and tart for me to want to keep drinking these, but my girlfriend really enjoyed it.

Notes from 7/16/14 at Hopleaf in Chicago, IL

Bottle into pint glass.

A: Opaque dark brown with a light brown head that disappears. Minimal lacing

S: Tart cherries, dark chocolate. Yeasty and musty.

T: Tart cherries. Roasted malts.

M: Thin a mildly carbonated. Too thin for what I was looking for in a stout.

D: Not very drinkable. Thin and tart. Does not hold up well to room temperature. This is cherry juice with a little stout, not the other way around, unfortunately.
