Dark roasted malt, sweet and dark chocolate dominate. Very smooth. The cherries are present in the aftertaste, but are not as strong a flavor as I would have liked. An above average beer.

09/19/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Never was big on sour anything so it's no surprise this was not to my liking.

Appearance was pitch black with a coffee colored head. The smell was a lot of coffee and sweet scents with hints of cherry through out. The taste was great with a lot of classic imperial stout flavors like dark chocolate and nuts that was softened and enhanced by the subtle sour/sweetness of the cherries through out the taste. The mouthfeel wasn't as thick as I was expecting but overall a very nice beer that I would definitely recommend to fans of dark beers.
