Poured into tulips and shared. A jet black beer with very little detectable head. Aroma is of dark chocolate, roast malt and cherries. Taste is a slightly tart cherry-chocolate followed by roasted malt and a little bit of coffee. Mouthfeel is dense, viscous, and almost flat carbonation. A huge sipper of a beer - much larger than its ABV would indicate. Overall, an enjoyable dessert stout, but not one you'd drink the whole bomber by yourself.

Poured from the 11 oz bottle into a snifter glass.
Pours jet black with minimal caramel head.
Smells a lot like bourbon and roasted cherries.
Tastes huge. Intense flavor of a cherry cordial and roasted malts. Tons of cherry, tons of chocolate.
Mouthfeel is is very thick and very heavy.
A sipping beer that will fill you up very fast. Intense flavor.
