Blue Point Brewing Company - Sour Cherry Imperial Stout, poured into a Fiddlehead snifter.

Look - Pours thin viscosity brown and settles black with slightly translucent brown around the outsides when held up to the light. Bubbly mocha head that dissipates quickly. OK lacing.

Smell - Roasted malt, touch of chocolate and cherry. Subtle but tasty aroma.

Taste - Cola carbonated but full flavored malt and chocolate with a dash of cherry at the end.

Mouthfeel - Lighter bodied with high carbonation. Not at all boozy with good drinkability.

Overall - This is just OK, not a breathtaking experience at all. Not really a great example of a RIS, or an imperial stout, but oh well!

Three finger tan head from a solid pour. Jet black brew. Decent retention and fluffy lacing that slides down the glass.

Roasted chocolate malt aroma, just a hint of cherry or grape tartness. Wheat, and milk or cream.

There's a definite tartness and it is far more sour than I expected. Coffee does not hit until the midtongue, and the cocoa is on the back end only. Not the flavor profile that I expected, and not one that is great.

Slightly chewy, but a little bit light for the style. Overall medium mouthfeel. No hint of alcohol. No sting, and no bite.

I'm very disappointed. This is simply a mediocre beer. It's not bad, but I feel the tartness does not work. Further, it's not a good stout by itself. Not terrible, but I recommend you skip this one.

1pt bottle
no date

A- Opaque black that you cant see thru, has many small champagne like bubbles under a strong light. 1 finger high head that stuck around for about 5 minutes.

S- from the bottle, quite a bit of chocolate. From the glass it has a very sweet smell, chocolate, vanilla some roastyness. Did I mention quite sweet...

T- Chocolate, bread, a sweet tartness, not much fruit..

M- Full body, very silky and smooth, kind of fizzy

O- Decent flavor, easy to drink, had a slight tartness but nothing I would consider sour. Still think it is kinda sweet, but not a sugary or candy sweet, must be from the cherrys ? I would drink this again.
