12oz 10/8/13 bottle poured into snifter.

A: Pours black with a very faint mocha head that fades quickly.

S: Roasted malts and some chocolate coming off. Very, very faint cherry smell burried deep in there.

T: Completly opposite of the smell. Big tart cherry overpowers all else. At the end you do get some of the malts and chocolate that are in the aroma.

M: Medium body with decent carbonation.

O: A decent stout. Was a bit of a let down. This one falls short of the excellent stouts (Expedition, Black Note, double Cream....ect...) that Bell's usually does. As much as I love cherries, here they are too overly dominant. Wish more of the classic stout flavors where there. If the cherries were toned down just a notch this one could be damn near perfect.

A - Pours a pitch black with a back tone of some red tints. The head is almost purple / red when held up against some light. Nice lacing and spotting after each drink.

S - Chocolate malts, coffee beans, vanilla, and cherries of course.

T - Tart cherries, dark chocolate, coffee, malts. Finishes sour and dry and leaves a bit of a sticky acidic aftertaste on the tongue. Full bodied, but lacks some finesse.

O - Very interesting brew - I would recommend this, but not sure I would get it again any time soon. Nice to try once, but probably will not come back.
