3.31/5 rDev -15.6%
On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter.
Appearance - Arrives with a huge head. Lasts for a long time. Beautiful lacing and chunky islands of foam on the surface.
Smell - Roasty malt. Faint cherry fruit aroma. A bit of chocolate.
Taste - Cherry is more pronounced but blends into the roasted malt character. Caramel malt. A little nutty. Lactose sweetness.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated. The cherry lends a touch of acidity.
Overall - Not one of the Buddha's better porter treatments. The bar is set pretty high though.

This beer at first disappointed me as I was expecting the typical over the top treatment. This beer is fairly subtle but really grew on me over time.
Pours a nice dark brown with a nice but smallish head.
Has dry chocolate with a hint of cherry on the nose
The taste is bakers chocolate with hints of cherries, I was expecting a HUGE beer with a wet boozy finish with more of a chocolate covered cherry flavor. What this this is way more subtle and a beer you can absolutely have more than one of.
Mouthfeel is somewhat thinner than expected but still nice and creamy with a smooth feel in the moth. Very ways drinking
Overall this one really grew on me over time, I'd still like an imperial version of this that smacks you over the head but this is a really nice very enjoyable treatment.
