3/5 rDev -15%
12 oz. bottle dated 10/08/13
The smell is fantastic! Rich and roasty malts with just a hint of cherry. The taste on the other hand is very tart and briney. I'm trying really hard to enjoy this one, but if can't get past the initial taste of olive juice type flavor. I personally think that the cherry juice needs to toned down a lot in order to make this one palatable. Glad I can say I've tried this one, but I personally didn't care for it and wouldn't drink it again.

4.05/5 rDev +14.7%
A: Dark, dense brown with a small tan head.
S: Lots of cocoa and toffee, though no cherriness I can detect.
T: Cherries do come through in the flavor, and thankfully with no added sweetness. The tartness blends quite well to balance the malt sweetness, which offers lots of chocolate malt notes. Bitterness is low, appropriately. This is a marriage of malt and cherries, and it's very well done.
M: Soft, creamy, not too carbonated.
Good beer! Nice to have at the end of cherry season, too.

Got excited when I saw this bottle at the store. Then I realized it wasn't the barrel aged version. Oh well, still gave it a shot.
The appearance and smell bring forth the stout. Don't get any cherries on the nose. Those came later on the finish; slightly sour, which I like. This beers starts out all stout then finishes almost all cherry syrup. Occasionally you'll get the stout mixed with cherry tartness - which is excellent. Good, but not great. Would like to try the barrel aged version sometime.
