Sour cherry Imperial Stout on draft at the brewery on 1/27/23. Served cold. Good flavor with minimal cherry taste. Not a huge fan of imperial stouts, but this one hides the alcohol well, and delivers a nice roasty flavor.

Poured from the bottle.
Don't be confused by the name: It's a stout with "sour cherries", not a "sour stout".
The cherries are a nice addition, bright and tart without getting to be too sweet. It goes well with the roasted malt, chocolate and dark aged fruits.

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.

Comes out of the tap a warm sable just a scratch above black with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled tan head. Malty aroma has chocolate, caramel, cherry and nutty hints. Satisfying flavor has a core of roast malt plus notes of cherry, more sweet than sour, Texture has good body and plenty of fizz. If you like cherries and stouts, this is a must!

No sour and no cherry. Not undrinkable but not good either.
