Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light cherry with limited residual sugars notes and some black chocolate is really interesting. Taste is also a very nice mix of light cherry notes with some good black chocolate notes with a lightly sweet finish. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Quite enjoyable overall but I was expecting a bit more cherry notes to this beer.

Had this last night during our "Night of a Thousand Stouts" beer party my wife and I hosted. It smelled good, could detect the chocolate and cherry notes, the look was a little watery and thin, same with the overall mouthfeel. While it did deliver the chocolate covered cherry flavor I was expecting, it wasn't as good as the Ten Fidy we had just sampled right before it.

2011 bottling. Served slightly chilled into a tulip glass.

Cherry Chocolate Stout is very dark brown on the pour and nearly black in the glass. It has thin tan head that settles quickly to a skim layer.

Aroma is sweet and roasty with hints of cherry and chocolate.

Flavor is more bold in the cherry character but still has a rich robust stout base beer. There is more bitterness than sweetness which is unexpected given the name. Chocolate is there as is the vanilla but it never drinks like a dessert beer.

Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with a little more carbonation than a beer of this style really needs.

Overall a decent flavored stout but not outstanding.

Sampled from a 12oz bottle. Thanks surge1311.

A - Big and black with no light coming through. A small tan head. The beer sticks to the glass nicely.

S - As billed, cherries and chocolate. But the chocolate fades and the cherries take over. Vanilla and brown sugar poke through at times.

T - Again, cherry and chocolate. Also a mild sweetness. The flavors are bold and linger a long time. The cherry is a bit too dominant and eventually wears you down.

M - A moderate consistency with a low carbonation.

O - A good beer and well worth a try but one was probably enough.
