Bottled: 11/13/15.
Black, no light coming through up to the light. A finger of dark tan head that quickly settles to a ring. Good looking carbonation when rocking the glass. The aroma is of brown sugar or thick molasses, milk and dark chocolates, some dark dried fruits like raisins or prunes, and the tartness from the cherry juice is in the background.
Flavor is a nice tart cherry almost immediately that lingers followed by that molasses and chocolate. The beer is really quite tart but not in an off putting way. The feel is average carbonation, a little sticky, medium body. Overall, pretty nice stout. If you like tart chocolate covered cherries with a sticky molasses touch, you might like this.

Pours nice and dark with light red tinge. Aroma. Coffe and berries. Taste is a tad weird to me coffee and roast quickly crushed and replaced by crushed cherries,cherry juice and a light tang at the end. Not my type of stout at all. Nice attempt though.

Smooth, TART cherry taste. Too tart for my liking but if tart cherries were then this would be a great beer
