COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Margarete, the object of wanton desire, is a seductive stout transformed by sour cherries and 11 months internment in bourbon barrels into a devilish union of decadent fragrances and flavors. 89 Cases

HonkeyBra (3280) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Rating from notes. Crushed with my man, TheDude. Pours a dark brown with a small beige tan head. Aroma is bourbon, cherries, barrel notes and sweet dark malts. Notes of molasses, brown sugar, and dark fruits. Traces of booze in the aroma. Flavor is tart, sour, with medium sweetness peaking through the sour notes. Lots of cherry and raisin notes, chocolate, roast. Mouthfeel is coating, chewy, and exhausting. Finishes a touch boozy.

going through my cellar in an attempt to drink it it down. could have sworn i had rated this sucker before. black body with a brown head that does not last. strong grape(which is probably cherry, but seems like grape to me) scent with a fuck ton of roast and raisin. not much sour which makes me happy. cherry is definitely still there though. a lot of cherry. sweet flavor rolls into the deep chocolate. damn this is good. i just had a year old expediton and this is treating me better, and that was a damn fine beer. body is just a bit thin but i can’t think of much more to knock on this.

hopdog (8821) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2013
12oz bottle. This was one Big Boy! Poured a black color with brown edges and an off white head. Cherries, wood, vanilla, chocolate, roast, and some bourbon. Medium alcohol burn in the finish - but for a big boy like this, expected.

Westmeister (1699) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2013
All of the first 10 from the series were shared by craftbeerdesign. Probably second best out of the 10. Pour thick motor oil. Booze, leather, old bourbon, some cigar wrapper in the nose. Taste is very interesting. The cherries came off more in the spicy, peppery than tart. Great bourbon, vanilla, leather components as well. Superb big beer.

mcberko (6035) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2013
12 oz. bottle, sent generously by aplusbreaks (thanks a lot, Austin), pours a deep dark mahogany with a tiny head. Pretty hot on the nose, full of rich bourbon barrels, a subtle presence from the cherries, and alcohol - smells rich and intense. Flavour is extremely decadent bringing out equal parts complex bourbon barrels and potent sour cherries - the sourness not being overwhelming at all, but instead perfectly situated amongst the bourbonized complexity. The 15+% is almost completely masked with only a light tickle on the back of the throat. Extremely thick body, with the sour cherries used expertly. Sour stouts never usually impress me, but this is easily the best take on the style I’ve had. Awesome stuff and my favourite of the Barrel-Aged Series so far.

VsXsV (2182) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with low to medium carbonation. Aroma of licorice, soy, chocolate, light coffee, light ash, biscuit, bread, wood and cherries. Taste is medium to high sweet and low to medium bitter with notes of soy, licorice, chocolate and wood. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Awesome.

PhillyCraft (3146) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle last year. This was a heavy guy. Dark black pour with beige thick head. A little bit of lacing hung around. Aromas and taste of heavy bourbon, milk cocoa, molasses, oak, dark fruits mostly cherry. Medium to full bodied Russian Imperial. Thanks for sharing Brian.

Soy sauce and overroasted astringent coffee with sour fruit and raw sugar. Some mushroom as well. Very sweet and tough to finish. Bleh.
