Received from @bstyle. Can dated 11/3/2017. Poured into pint glass. It pours nearly black with dark walnut hues. The mocha-colored head dissipated quickly leaving a thin sheen of like-colored lacing. It smells like chocolate covered cherries with roasted malt, light coffee, and nuts. I was concerned that the cherries might be cloying but no worries! The taste opens with roasted malt, burnt coffee, and tasty, tart cherry. It The bourbon is noticeable but delicate. It closes with a slight acidity, along with notes of spice and pepper. For a RIS it's medium-bodied with light to moderate carbonation, and the hefty 13.1% ABV is noticeable but not overwhelming. Overall, Deth by Cherries is delightful: all of the tastes blend terrifically. It's a great variant of Deth's Tar.

12oz can, snifter glass. Dark black body, one finger offwhite head, short retention and no lacing. Smell is pretty much the base Deth's Tar- big milk chocolate, oatmeal, whiskey heat, a bit of vanillin, cocoa. Touch of cherry that doesn't get bigger as it warms- pretty static, slightly tart but mostly sweet cherry flesh. Flavour follows; Deth's Tar is easily recognizable with a nice whiskey heat, oatmeal, milk chocolate, a bit of vanillin, cocoa, touch of bitter dark chocolate that is quickly covered up by a mild cherry flesh sweetness. It's not tart or sour in any way; the cherry just adds a bit of fruity sweetness to the already robust base beer. Fuller bodied, slightly thinner than what I remember of the base but that is to be expected with the fruit addition. Slight cherry sweetness on the finish, a touch of whiskey heat. A nice example of fruit added to a big whiskey barrel aged stout; it complements but doesn't distract/detract from the base beer itself which is already excellent caliber.

Beautiful Stout. Delicious harmony of cherry and chocolate, I don't know who wouldn't think this is great. It's a very robust dark stout with the perfect amount of cherry on the nose and palate. All flavors compliment each other incredibly well, this is right up there with Blue Gene which is one of my personal favorites.

On tap at Stacks in Valpo. Served in a 10oz. snifter.

Look- Dark as night with a minuscule foam cap. No lacing is present, but there is an oily residue clinging to the glass.

Smell- Tart cherry, bakers chocolate, bourbon and molasses.

Taste- Mildly tart cherries, bourbon, dark chocolate, vanilla and oak.

Feel- Slightly thin and oily with well disguised alcohol heat.

Overall- A very good beer in It's own right, but not one of their best barrel aged offerings in my opinion. The slightly sour cherry taste dominates and overrides the barrel characteristics. The oak comes through in the finish, but unfortunately not enough to bump up my score.

The best cherry stout I've ever had, hands down, and a great showcase of the cherries, period, even when compared to classic krieks. Pours black and moderately viscous, with thin head that dissipates quickly. Beautiful cherry cordial on the nose, with thick fruit and chocolate, accented by oak and heat. The barrel really shines in every sip, making sure you know this is still Deth's Tar at heart. Nom. I still have some cans at home from the release, but I'm reviewing this on draft at a local bar, because it's worth bar prices to let me continue hoarding my precious cans!
