Had this on-tap at the Roadhouse in Brookline, MA, at a short's Beer night, this past weekend. If this is not the black cherry porter I drank, please someone let me know.
Dark as crud color, with slightly maroon lacing on the sides of the glass.
Aroma is sweet, with some dark fruit, what I assume would be the cherries. slight spicy hops, and some alcohol.
The taste is sweet, and somewhat refreshing, which shocked me for a beer with such ABV. Alcohol warms as you drink though. The sweetness comes from the cherries. Faint note of floral hops. A bit sticky from the fruit.
Very drinkable and well made.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours pitch black with a small brown head that recedes quickly. Big chocolate aroma with a background of fruit, anise, and surprising spice. Flavor is bitter chocolate with only hints of the cherry. Big and bold, with tobacco and fruit mixed together. Hop bitter holds the sweetness in check. Pretty flavorful porter here, bordering on a stout. Not bad.
