Poured into a Duvel snifter glass.

A - 4.5 - Pours a pitch black color, forms a good finger and a half of very dark tan colored head. Medium/low head potential, medium/low head retnetion. Whispy and spotty lacing.
S - 5 - LET THIS ONE WARM UP! With a decent amount of time to warm, I am getting tart cherry, sweet maraschino cherries, lightly roasty malty, bittersweet baker's chocolate, roasted coffee beans and more rough coffee grounds.
T - 4.5 - Follows the nose closely, but the coffee definitely makes a bigger stand here, reminds me somewhat of Ommegang's Seduction.
F - 4.5 - Nice creamy mouthfeel.
O - 4.5 - A very tasty stout that stay's true to its commercial description.

Served on tap at The Holy Grail Pub in Plano, TX.

A: Pours a midnight black with a finger tall light mocha head. Great head retention (hardly any reduction through the drinking of an entire pint) and massive amounts of lacing.

S: Dark roasted and burnt malts with hints of chocolate, cherry, and coffee. Very intense.

T: Bittersweet chocolate followed by dark roasted malts, cherries, and a light smokiness from burnt malts. There are also some extremely slight hints of nuts.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Nice and creamy.

O: Big smell and big flavor really make this beer great - not a disappointment after hearing a lot of folks in the bar talk it up. Quite enjoyable and could probably even be sessionable if one paced themselves. The cherry does not dominate but is a wonderful companion to the other flavors in the beer. I would definitely get it again if I found it.

OK first of all the ABV is 10.3% and not 8%. Aggressive pour yields a big frothy head. Smell is pretty flat with no scent of cherry at all. First sip yields a bitter dark (not sweet) chocolate/coffee flavor but still pretty flat. But once this thing warms up, the sweetness really and I mean really comes out. But still no cherry flavor at all. All in all a really good beer.
