3.81/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a dimpled mug.

A - Pours a semi-opaque dark brown with ruby highlights around the edges. Perfectly even two-finger creamy head of brown foam of tiny bubbles. Not much lacing.

S - Really strong aroma of maraschino cherries! Also getting some chocolate, making this smell a lot like chocolate covered cherry candy. Definitely not much else going on, but the aroma that is here is exceptionally good.

T - Sadly not quite as good as the smell. Both chocolate and cherries are there, but the taste is slightly artificial. Chocolate is closer to cocoa powder, and the cherries kind of taste like cherry Halls. Base beer contributes just enough bitterness. A nice idea overall, but just a tad off in execution.

M - Thin bodied, with moderate carbonation. Could use either more body or more carbonation. Kind of just sits there on the tongue.

O - Not bad by any means, but slightly disappointing. I found myself wishing this was a chocolate cherry stout. I think if it was a stout instead of a bock, allowing the chocolate flavors to be more natural, this could be a hit.

3.54/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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.
