look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with an eighth of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic. Strong notes of cherries up front, followed by some dark chocolate, roasted malt and some slight notes of freshly baked dark bread.

Taste: Very much like the aroma. Strong flavors of macerated cherries up front, followed by some bitter dark chocolate, roasted malt and freshly baked dark bread. I also get some caramel-like sweetness to round everything out. Very Nice flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and pretty smooth as there is practically no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 5.8%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a very nice beer, though with the strong flavors of cherry, dark chocolate and caramel, it is much more suited to be a desert beer and/or paired with desert as opposed to a sit down and have a beer/session beer. I do like the strong flavors of cherry and chocolate.

A - Pours a dark proud with a large 2 finger head which dissipates down to a film, minimal lacing.
S - Roasted, toasty malts and a light, pleasant cherry aroma.
T - Nice, slightly smokey bock flavor with a lightly sweet chocolate flavor and a nice lite cherry taste. Not overbearingly sweet, just right, very pleasant and highly sessionable. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side.
O - A damned good brew, very delicious.
V - Low, as far as I know, is only available in the winter seasonal sampler pack.
