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.

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.
