Alrighty, poured into the Duvel tulip and it produces a decent dark khacki head that doesn't stick around too long. Pretty much your standard opaque black heavy stout as far as color goes. The nose, hmmmm I get a whiff of sourness I'm assuming is from the cherry addition but barely any true fruit aromas. Beyond that is a medium roasty note...that's all I get. I like the mouthfeel, smooth and not super carbonated. The taste is comprised of roasted malt with verrry slight cherry sourness...I get a hint of phenols too...I will say the 9% ABV really isn't a throat burner. It's finishing more like a robust Porter than an Imp Stout. I expected a bit more "bigness" in all areas with this one. This is a one timer for me.

3.65/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 2.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours maogany with a thin layer of mocha head. Nice viscosity, some head retention & lacing

S: Choke cherry, raisin & carob

T: Baker's chocolate, sour cherry, faint coffee notes, figgyness & dark chocolate up front. This takes on sweeter chocolate flavors as this warms, along with more figgyness & some cocoa powder & some cherry tartness. Finishes slightly dry, with dark fruittyness & chocolate sweetness

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, actually thins out a bit as this warms

Drinks easy enough, but was hoping for way more from this one. Lack of body doesn't really help the cause, but the ABV is well hidden, worth a try

Super super dark brown with a thin brown head that fades extremely quickly. Smells faintly of a chocolate shop or one of those dark chocolate covered cherry candies. Nice sweet smell but has roasty burnt malts as the dominate smell with some coffee as well.

Pretty good and pretty standard as far as imperial stouts go, definitely sweeter though and without enough bitterness. I would sooner call this an american double stout rather than a russian imperial one, hops are low on this. Nice roasted coffee flavor through out, sweet chocolate and dark chocolate flavors. Cherry flavor is extremely subtle but it's there. Sourness is there in a weird acidic flash on the back of the tongue with the swallow. There is a nice cherry flavor that lingers on the tip of the tongue. It's a pretty good beer but dont expect a lot of sour or cherry flavor if thats what your looking for but it is there. Actually with each sip, the lingering flavor tastes more and more like a dark chocolate covered candied cherry. Body is a little thin though and the beer gets a little acidic.
