I was not expecting to like this as much as I did. Cheery taste is delightfully subtle as is the abv. Good stuff.

Very delicious easy drinking porter. The sweetness of the cherry juice and chocolate come through subtlety but are obviously more present than other cherry chocolate beers I've had. Great with bacon and sausage!

Nice! A great balance between cherry and chocolate. I love stouts, and this is a nice slightly lighter version of a good stout. Very enjoyable.

Pours a thick viscous mahogany with a slight tan head and aromas of dark chocolate and cherries. Thick liquid chocolate mouthfeel with a pungent bittersweet dark chocolate forward opening up into a tart cherry finish. Very reminiscent of a cherry cordial. Better when it is colder as the flavors are more balanced and muted, as it warms the cherry is starting to get overpowering. For a 9% beer it is hidden well. Overall a decent beer

Okay.. The first few sips were incredible, smooth subtle cherry flavor with a dark chocolate finish.. As you drink more you can clearly taste cherry juice, becomes too sweet and overpowering..I'm giving it a 3 just because it goes down easy for a beer that is 9.8%, but other than that nothing special.. As a homebrewer and avid craft beer drinker I personally feel juice should never be added to beer, I feel actual cherries would have sufficed and reduced that artificial and intense sweetness of cherry juice

Pours black with thin head. Smells like cherry bread. Cherry and dough up front with an excellent chocolate finish that's smooth down yur throat. I'm getting another
