look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Nearly black pour with 2 fingers of tannish head. Solid ring of lacing.

S: Roasted grains, dark sugars, and black cherry. Sweet and bitter.

T/F: Just like the nose... rich roasted grains and burned sugars... cocoa, cherry juice... mix of sweet fruit and bitter roast. Also mild tartness from the cherry. Good flavor combinations... medium bodied with nice carbonation. The finish is cherry chocolate.

O: A pretty delicious cherry/chocolate stout from Victory. One of their better 'blackboard' releases. An enjoyable dessert beer.

Hard poured from a bottle. Nice very dark brown, almost black color. Tan head that sticks around a bit and laces nice. Cherry and chocolate smells, with flavour that follows. Nice bitter chocolate and sour cherry is what I’m getting. Good flavour and a very good beer!

Enjoy by 2/19/28. Consumed on 2/21/18. Shoot.

Pours black with a good sized khaki tan head. Beautiful lacing on the glass.

Smell of tart cherries mainly.

A bit of roast bitterness on the back end.

An ok brew. Not amazing by any means. Not terrible.

Pours black with a well retained thin tan head that left spotty lacing. Smells of chocolate covered cherries. Tastes of tart cherries, dark chocolate, a hint of coffee, roasted malts and an unpleasant earthy quality. Thin mouth feel, light bodied, minimal carbonation. Overall a disappointment.

12 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a snifter

This beer pours black and is topped with less than an inch of mocha head that leaves very little head.

The smell is cherry and chocolate. Roasted malt comes through after it warms a bit.

The flavor is dark roasted malt bordering on burnt popcorn. I get a little dark chocolate and even less cherry. The roasted malt leaves somewhat of a bitter coffee aftertaste.

Medium to full mouthfeel

It looked and smelled good. The burnt toast and black coffee taste grew coated my palate and the lack of much chocolate and cherry in the taste was a little disappointing.

12oz bottle poured into glass. The color is black with thin tan head. The smell conists of dark chocolate and cherry with a hint of mocha. The taste is similar to the smell. The chocolate and cherry are mixed together, but the chocolate is stronger than the cherry. This beer feels a little heavy due to the abv. Overall this beer tastes like it's advertised so its a win.
