3.28/5 rDev -10.6%
A: deep brownish red, opaque, just a hint of light scatter; no head, a thin galaxy of surface film; no lacing
S: malt and cherry, quite mild
T: distinctly malty, slightly roasted, dark cherry, almost but not too sweet, a bit of must
M: medium bordering on full-bodied, smooth, creamy
O: Not a favorite. God enough for an experimental glass. Borders on being too sweet and creamy for a stout, but those are characteristics of the style, so that isn't necessarily a negative for fans.

This seems like it would be a good milk stout without the cherries. With it, there is an added level of sweetness that kicks it up just a wee bit too much. Regardless, it's still pretty smooth. Quite easy to drink. Very pleasant. I like it. Glad I was able to find this one.

Grabbed a 4pk and reviewing based on the first two tries. Pours jet black with a nice tan head that fads quick and leaves little if any lacing.
The smell is sweet chocolate with a hint of cherry. Instantly I expected this to be a sweet dessert beer. I really enjoy smelling this one.
The taste is very sweet and chocolatly. Kind of reminds me of hot chocolate but in a beer. The cherry is very subtle but adds to a very nice finish.
This is pretty smooth, maybe a little thin but I actually think this works for this beer. It's a nice drinking beer that goes down easy.
Overall, I really enjoy this beer. I'm reviewing it as a dessert beer, and if you think of it this way it is a top notch beer.
