Cherry Stout is a blend of 6 malts combined with Montmorency Cherry concentrate from our home state of Michigan. A stout to be cherished. Open It!

Pours a dense dark cherry wood brown. Large, frothy, light brown head. Moderate to well-formed Belgian lace. Persistent head. The initial nose is light and suggests tart cherries. Moderate carbonation. Much lighter body than expected. If tasting blind, I would not have identified it as a stout but perhaps placed as a porter. Very modest fruit/cherry notes on the palate. If I had no visual queues, but had to categorize, I would lean toward a Flemish brown ale. Short, dry finish. Lingering notes of cherry pits. Moderate alcohol. Did the cherry concentrate replace or camouflage th hops? Quite pleasant, but not what I’d expect in a stout. One is enough.

From the 355 ml bottle. It pours nearly black with a foamy beige head. The aroma does have a hint of cherries in it along with a weak scent of malts. The mouthfeel runs about medium and weaker than most stouts. Yup, there is a cherry flavor in the taste and that is the main taste that I get. Kind of sour in the end. This is not a stout that I would buy frequently.

Pours a dark brown with a one to two finger light tan head. The nose is cherry tart, metallic, off. Similar to the Vanilla Java Porter, something not right about it. Flavor is tart and metallic, mild cherry sweetness, no roast, weak coffee. Palate is tart and metallic.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. The aroma was inviting enough with some roast, dark chocolate, and sweet tart cherries. The flavor had mild roasted malts, light coffee, milk chocolate, and well blended cherry flavor. I found this to be drinkable which was a bit of a surprise.

5/07/2009: Atwater Cherry Stout pours a dark chocolate brown color with a reverse-cascading foamy beige to light tan head. The aroma presents dark chocolate and coffee (more like a mocha blend) with a hint of something sweeter in the background. The flavor is like dark chocolate and cherries. This is actually a fairly well-done cherry-flavored beer. It definitely beats my expectations as I had actually more or less written this off before I tried it (wrong thing to do, I know). The cherry is there but doesn’t immediately jump out and it actually tastes real and not the usual nasty fake cough syrup-like flavor. This beer has an average body and is quite drinkable.

12 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. 6.5% by Vol.) shared by alexsdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #28 for this beer.
