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!

ChainGangGuy (4362) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Appearance: Pours out a dark brown, near black body with a thin, wispy, off-white head. Smell: Mildly roasted and chocolaty malt notes with some tart-scented wafts of cherry flavoring. So far, itís a tad lacking in terms of it being a purported stout and not overly effusive in its cherry qualities. Though, donít get me wrong, that doesnít mean I necessarily want to get BLOWN AWAY with cherries, I just want enough. Taste: Roasted grains and some unceremoniously discarded hunks of unsweetened chocolate. The cherry concentrate doesnít provide much concentrated cherry taste, but thereís plenty of tartness present. Earthy, roasty bitterness. Lightly roasted, meagerly cherryish on the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: Over the years, Iíve had several faulty Atwater beers, chock full of alarming tartness. Here, though, I guess itís somewhat appropriate. Even still, itís not a particularly great fruit stout.

Pailhead (4761) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, caramel, roastiness, and faint tart cherry. It pours a dark brown that becomes more of an orangish-brown with some transparency when held to the light. It has a small tan head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate. The finish is a strange combination roasted malt, coffee, and light tart cherries. Iím not a real big fan of the tart cherry and coffee combination in cherry stouts. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2010 Bottle purchased in South Carolina. Pours a brown black with a beige head that quickly fades. Cherry fruits some sweetness and chocolate roasted malts in the nose. Tart cherries sweet chocolate malts that go together well enough. A little sweet and a little tart. But decent and goes really well with my bean soup with orange juice and peppers.

strong with cherries, and thick like syrup. one of the better cherry stouts i have had, the thickness was the only downside to it.

allfreej (552) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Bottled. Clear dark brown pour, tan head. Nose is malt and cherry cordial candies. Flavor is roasty malt, and bitter cherry (too heavy on the pits?). Astringent finish. Pass this one by and find some Bellís.

Suttree (5130) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2009
A little heavy on the cherry part of the equation and lighter on the stout part, but I kinda liked it anyway. Black with areddish hue and a loose foamy white head. Aroma and flavor both crisp, tart cherry and only a hint of chocolate and coffee. Surprisingly thin bodied, as well, Kind of unorthodox, but I liked it.

kramer (4903) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a one finger fizzy light brown head. A good bit of visible carbonation. Pretty light nose, just a little roasted malt and a touch of sour cherry. There really isnít much cherry flavor either, if I didnít know that there was a little sour cherry in here, I might have guessed that it as infected even. It does have a certain chocolate covered cherry finish that is a little endearing though. Medium bodied, a little clingy, with moderate fizzy carbonation. OK, but kinda pedestrian, even for a Fruit Beer.

JaBier (4854) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2009
12oz bottle. Dark brown pour with a big beige head. Vegetal aroma with dark cherry tartness and some malt. Malty flavor with hints of coffee and a cherry finish. Not awful, but I didnít care much for the vegetal nose and would have preferred a more robust stout base and real cherries instead of concentrate.
