This is the Dark Star Stout aged on Espresso, Jameson Irish Whisky soaked oak chips and with almost 10 lbs of cherries added to the cask. Your mind will leave your body after a few of these. Part of the Serenade Series, the yeast was serenaded with the immense tune Dark Star while the beer was brewed, fermented and conditioned.

ChainGangGuy (4801) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2008
UPDATED: APR 7, 2008 Appearance: Black body with a small, light tan-colored head. Smell: Alright, you start off with a heavily roasted malt character and let’s go down the list. Espresso. Check! Whiskey and Oak. Check, though they are pretty light. Cherries. Check! Light, too, but a slight cherry juice scent awakens a bit more as it warms. Taste: Dry, roasty maltiness with a shot of cold espresso. Dark caramel with just a touch of sweetness. Dash of cherry juice. The oak and whiskey remain considerably light, flavorwise. Hints of chocolate before the dry finish yielding a bit more oak and cherry. Mouthfeel: Soft, medium-bodied. Mild carbonation. Drinkability: Not bad at all. Some of these beers with copious amounts of additional flavorings end up either aspiring for greatness or aspiring for having way too much shit in it. This beer fell right in the middle, with the extra components blending in well without ever being overwhelming out-of-place or leading one to shout "gack!"
