I had this one at the West Point Market in Akron. Pours a nice light colored head but it fades away quickly. It has a nice red hue to it as well. You can smell the chocolate right off the bat. The first taste highlights the cherry flavor but falls into one of the best chocolate flavors i've seen in a beer. The alcohol is not subtle at all but works with the cherries to really bring out a great flavor. It's not overly sweet either. I'm not always that big of a fan of Sam Adams stuff but this one is great. I'm gonna have to pick this one up again on my next trip out to the market.

12oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
(A)- Pours a pitch black color. Produced some tan froth and bubbles.
(S)- A wonderful aroma of chocolate covered cherries with just a hint of raisins. Dessert in a glass.
(T)- A slight chalkiness meets a ton of chocolate covered cherries. Ever so slight medicinal(cough syrup) quality to the fruit, but subtle.
(M)- A good carbonation level. I like the balance aside from the chalky medicinal parts. It gets to be rather sweet as it warms.
(O)- The smell is glorious. Too bad the rest of the beer is not up to par.
