It's always a treat to try some new-to-me beers from Revolution's Deep Woods series, and Tavour seems to get most of the releases thankfully. This one sounds really fun, Deth's Tar is great as is, and I can only imagine that the addition of cherries elevates it. Let's crack it open and find out

Pours completely pitch black with a finger of creamy tan head that slowly fades to a thin ring and leaves minimal lacing

The cherries are surprisingly gentle in the nose, but they add a wonderful touch of tartness. I'm picking up on aromas of chocolate fudge, toasted oak, black cherry, sweet bourbon, burnt caramel, molasses, cherry pit, and light vanilla

It's even smoother and less tart in taste, but still damn good for what it is. On the front end of the sip I'm tasting milk chocolate, toast oak, vanilla bean, molasses, black cherry, brown sugar, burnt caramel, raisin, and dark toast. The swallow brings notes of toasted oak, sweet bourbon, cherry juice, molasses, chocolate fudge, vanilla bean, sweet caramel, burnt sugar, dark toast, and light roast coffee

A medium body pairs with gentle carbonation, resulting in a smooth beer. Finishes mostly dry and balanced

This is just slightly better than the already awesome base beer, though it would be better if the cherries were amped up a bit more

The cherries are a nice addition that change the flavor profile from being mostly about the barrel to a bit sweeter and easier to drink.

12oz can. Can bottom is stamped 'FILLED: 11-11-2020'. Label is marked for ABV% as 12.5%. Found as a single at Devines in River Falls WI.
Black colored body, with red mahogany back lit edge. Two fingers of mocha brown head, which reduces back to an interrupted cap and ring. Revitalized head comes back with each sip. For lacing only a few small spots are left behind.
Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon, oak, and a definite addition of cherry. Smells more tart than sweet.
Taste is tart cherry over sweeter bourbon barrel and oak, with roasted malts. Vanilla and a hint of chocolate. Aftertaste is a more direct cherry and bourbon combo, along with the on point oat malt.
More than medium mouth feel, with a very smooth texture. Higher ABV% is manifested but stays put as part of the overall balance. Very good carbonation for its ABV%.
Sublime blend of the cherry with the base bourbon aged stout. Oatmeal is noticeable as the beer warms. Where can I find more?

Canned Nov, 2020. Great balance of malt, cherries and bourbon. The can says aged on sour cherries but I'm thinking more toward sweet cherries. However, the beer is not sweet. The Notes above say the beer was "blended" with cherry puree which may explain why the flavor is noticeable. Very well done!
