look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Bottled 10-4-11.
Appearance: Dark black with a light tint of ruby red on the edges. Lots of rising bubbles and a solid three finger deep tan head with good retention. Lacing is moderate.
Smell: Upfront aroma of sweet and mildly tart cherries which blend into dark roasted malts with caramel and toffee. Big presence of chocolate. Also some hints of milk, nuts, oats, and coffee. Smells pretty sweet.
Taste: Like the smell, a big upfront taste of sweet and tart cherries. Midway comes a big presence of dark roasty malts with plenty of caramel and toffee. Lots of chocolate with some notes of milk, coffee, oats, and nuts. The cherries are borderline too sweet but the good dark malt presence balances them out and makes this enjoyable.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy with a juicy feel. Very smooth.
Overall: An interesting mix of bright and sweet cherries and dark malts. Would go well with a piece of cherry cake or pie.

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.
