A: Dark, no transparency, finger of light khaki foam with consistent lacing

S: A hint of tart fruit, cola, hint of dark chocolate

T: Solid stout taste up front with a very fresh sour cherry finish. Not too sour, just write. This beer is not a sweet beer, it's a little tart but taste compliments the stoutness very well.

M: Smooth, a little carbonation with a fresh sour cherry aftertaste. Leaves a lingering taste that reminds me of eating fresh cherries during the summer.

O: This is a great beer and is very refreshing for a stout. Highly recommend and don't understand why it only has a score of 80 except that people may expect it to be a sweet cherry taste.

Bottled 10/4/11, enjoyed 10/14/14. Appearance is dark black with a reddish tinge around the edges. Not much of a head to speak of. Smell is roasty & a bit sour. Taste is quite tart. I'm pleasantly surprised at how much tartness it has. There is a subtle sweetness from the cherries too. It's nowhere near being a cherry bomb, but the cherry notes really do add something special to this beer. As a stout it's got good roast also. I'd buy it again, age it again, and consider it pretty underrated at a mere 80 points BA score.
