I was pleasantly surprised. This was a nice stout. The flavors were a bit subdued but for me that was fine. I actually felt like cherry, chocolate and natural roasted barley flavors blended well and none of them overwhelmed the other. I rated this a 4 because it was more than the sum of it parts and it was very drinkable.

Pours very dark brown with ruby highlights along the edges. A nice tan head slowly descends to a thin, lasting cap. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of mild cocoa nibs and a hint of cherry juice.

The taste is of sweet, slightly tart, cherry juice with cocoa and some roasted coffee notes. Mild roast and some medicinal (lozenges) notes in the finish.

It is on the thin side, but it is smooth. The carbonation is ample without being fizzy. Alcohol is well-covered.

Overall, it's not bad - just mild/restrained and cherry juice is slightly medicinal and overly sweet. Still, it has a decent stout backing and is easy enough to drink.
