COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Single 12oz. bottle purchased from Top Shelf Brews Thursday evening. Paid, I believe, $1.79, if not less. I may need to recheck the receipt to confirm this. To pint, it pours black with a creamy, sudsy tanned vanilla cream head two to three fingers, which gradually sank to barely a fingernail in length. Aromas of Fruit Roll-Ups®, maraschino cherries, pomegranate seeds, clementine peel, walnuts, and pine bark. Based on how it smelled, I thought it was going to have agreeable flavors. But its primary tastes consisted mainly of cherry ChapStick, charcoal, and skunked stout. Please no more.

stouty but there’s a certain lightness to the mouthfeel. Cherry definately there but luckily not as overpowering as some like it. Weak Malt.

tectactoe (1725) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Black body with a somewhat thick, tan film that shows good retention and leaves mild lacing nearly all the way down the glass. That’s pretty much the highlight of the beer. Aroma barely has cherry in it. Some roasted malts, grains... what else? Almost no aroma on this "cherry stout". Taste is tart and sour, tastes infected almost. More just brash "tartness" and not so much real cherry flavor. Roasted malt background. Plain, boring, semi-infected tasting, and uninteresting. Sticky & coating the palate in the finish, thin mouth feel for a stout. Not a great beer.

bottle. black with lots of head. seems overcarbonated. thin stout with a rather fake cherry element. could be so much better.

They got the aroma down pretty good. The body was thin...too thin for my taste, some notes of caramel and roasted malts. The problem I had was that the cherry flavoring was noticeably synthetic and chemical.

A bit thin on the palate, but the sweet cherry taste makes up for it. Reasonably priced, reasonably good

12 oz bottle from The Beerhive in Pittsburgh. For a stout, many elements are missing that one would expect from a heavier beverage. A thin body and almost no taste or aroma of cherry leaves this drinker disappointed. Was hoping for more but was left unsatisfied.

Bottle. Mediocre. Not as thick bodied as I'd like from a stout. The appearance was decent, a typical black pour. The scent was lacking, very faint cherry. The taste was a strong cherry up front, tart not sweet, followed by a roasty malt stout flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by stoneagerad

Has a black color. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is also mild, a touch of cherry, roasted malts. Overall a mediocre beer.

Pours black with ruby highlights. Creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate,and cherry. Chocolate and cherry flavor with roasted malt background. Decent beer.
