A: Pours black with a medium brown head. The head was only about an inch and I poured vigorously. It disappears very slowly.
S: Dark malts, smoke, coffee, but also tart cherry. The combination kind of smells like garbage that needs to be taken out.
T: At first you get the dark roasted malts, milk chocolate, smoke, but then you're hit hard with the tart cherries. This could be great if the cherries were more subtle. I've never heard anyone say this needs more cherry.
M: Nice medium mouthfeel until you get the tart of the cherry at the end.
O: This is a decent beer, but not one I'd really want to drink again. It reminds me how I wish the the BB version was better as well. More malts, less cherries, and this could be great.

Bottled: 9/18/14. Poured into a snifter.

Bottled 10/8/13

The cherries are still tart and delicious while the base stout is roasty malt with a slight bitterness. If memory serves correct, this beer tastes a lot like it did fresh.
