The beer pours a beautiful dark brown color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a sweet chocolate and crystal malt scent along with a faint cherry aroma. The taste is good as well. It has a quaffable chocolate and cherry flavor; delicious, yet not overly done. It's incredibly easy drinking even at 7%. It goes down quick with a sweet, almost milk stout character. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a damn good dessert style beer. It doesn't wimp out on chocolate flavor. The cherry taste is mild at best, but goes a long way in rounding out the taste.
Serving type: growler

Beautiful in a glass. deep rich color, the cherry taste seems powerful at first and then the chocolate takes over. This may be a bit too much as a dinner beer, but better as a dessert beer. Or just as dessert. Rich and full bodied. Good with red meats, particularly grilled.

Poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Very dark brown with a thick tan head.
Smell: A lot of cherry, faint chocolate like a tootsie roll, some malt.
Taste: Very very sweet, strong cherry taste at first, then comes in with a dark chocolate.
Mouthfeel: Almost a syrup like consistence, almost no carbonation.
Overall: Not a fan of this beer and had a hard time drinking it. It tasted like a flat cherry coke with cough syrup. Cherry flavor was too strong.
