Fairly thick brown ale with a thin fizzy head. Taste of fudge, brownies, chocolate cake, with a spritz of cherry cola taste that hits sharp and leaves, candy cherry taste for sure. Kind of an oily texture. Overall I thought the taste with pretty good, but found the beer too rich and tiresome after the first glass. Worth a try but go halves on the bottle with someone!

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.

Appearance: Pours dark, but not quite pitch black; the khaki head foams up and then slips down to a film; impressive lacing pattern

Smell: The aromatics are vaguely reminiscent of German chocolate cake, vaguely I should emphasize

Taste: Chocolate and cream, with hints of caramel and molasses; a vague cherry tone develops and gets slightly stronger as the beer warms; the sweeter flavors dominate the finish, but the overall impact is of artificial flavorings

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly thin for the style and an 8% beer; moderate carbonation

Overall: I have been wanting to try this for some time but find myself somewhat disappointed by the experience; the concept is a lot better than the execution here as a bigger, bolder beer with more chocolate and cherry flavors would be much better, particularly at the price point

Thanks, Domvan, for the opportunity

An outstanding smokey porter with a fresh cherry finish.
