Aroma of hot fudge and cherry cordial. Flavors a bit simple, lacking roasted character, but well done. Mouthfeel was a bit light. Over all this is a good starter beer for the style, and easier to consume than ones that better conform to the style guidelines.

Very well balanced overall. Not too sweet, with a great finish.

On tap at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark, dark black, with a half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells pretty nice, tons and tons of chocolate, really a chocolate bomb here. There's a bit of sweet cherry in the background too.

This luckily refrains from being too sweet, as I feared it might. There's ton of chocolate, both sweet and bitter, I get both sweet Hershey's syrup and rich, dark bitter chocolate, along with some sweet cherry juice. This came pretty cold off the tap- at first, the cherry flavor seemed pretty natural, sweet, and juicy, but as the beer warmed, the cherry flavor started to feel a little artificial, unfortunately. Still good, but not as good as it was earlier.

This is pretty thick bodied, and really full and creamy, mouthfeel-wise. There's a lower level of carbonation.

This was a lot better than I expected. The cherry got slightly fake as I went along, but it was still a well crafted stout in and of itself to begin with.

Had on nitro tap at John Harvard's at Holiday Valley.Came in a standard pint glass a deep cola color with a cascading creamy light beige head atop.Aromas of chocolate and tart cherries with a little coffee roast.A great mix of chocolate and sweet and mildly tart cherries on the palate,the nitro creamy feel just bumps it up another notch.Easily the best beer I have had from EVL.
