Pours very dark with minimal kakhi head. Big chocolate and cherry aroma, coconut, light barrel presence. Very tart at first, full bodied and sweet. As the tartness fades the chocolate comes through; bourbon barrel seems to bring it all together. Rich and creamy, yet very tart. Overall I am glad it but wouldn't buy again. Couldn't finish it and had to dump.

Pours a dark brown with an average tan head with lots of lacing. Smell is cherry and molasses. Taste is the same with a bourbon taste at the end. Mouthfeel is light for a stout. Overall, one of the better beers from Bell's.

Really nice how the sweet cherries blend with the stout qualities in this beer. Bourbon isn't really noticed much. Overall it takes a little adjusting of the pallet but about 1/2 way through it really shines.
