From the bottle, it pours a very dark brown with a hint of light brown showing at the edges. Head is briefly there and islands thereafter. Cherry and roasted malt in the nose. The mouth gets a touch of cherry along with the roast malt. enjoyable!

Note: mine stated 8.6% alcohol/vol

On tap at Top Hops NYC. Very subtle notes of cherry, minimal carbonation. Nice in small doses.

Dark enough where no light shines through. Moderate head which leaves single ring of lace. Spots thereafter.

The smell is fruity sweet, cherries as expected. I get some nearly burnt malts on the second smell.

More chocolatey than coffee. I would describe this beer as good porter, not a stout and certainly not an imperial stout. The alcohol is very deceptive, meaning I don't notice it. There's a bit of sourness in the swallow and aftertaste, but it is far more chocolate than anything else.

Overall a pretty good stout, but definitely not enough cherry. I may or may not have had beers with more cherry that wasn't even advertised. Worth a try if you see it, but no need to seek it out--especially at the price point.
