The finest Washington state cherries join Washington state Cascades and Mount Hood hops to make this malty, full-bodies brew a most delightful pint.

On tap at the Smokehouse this evening. Darkest brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, subtle cherry and metal. Chocolate and coffee flavor up front with some very subtle cherry influence before a chocolatey finish.

Growler, via Puddintane. Pours a mostly cloudy dark brown body with a small fizzy beige head that faded to a partial covering quickly. Nice chocolaty and roasty nose with some light chalky yeast. A little nuttiness and cocoa powder. The flavor is very chocolaty with a nice slightly hoppy and slightly fruity dry finish. Maybe a little thin. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a watery texture and nice soft gentle carbonation. Overall, a pretty nice Porter, maybe a touch thin, but still good. What’s odd though is that I really didn’t get any cherry flavor at all out of this. I would have never guessed that this was a fruited Porter.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2007
On tap @ the smokehouse: Dark brown to black pour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate and just a hint of cherries. Flavor, roasty, lots of chocolate malts, a pleasant hint of cherries, and some roasted bitterness on the finish. I really liked how the cherry was just an accent on the porter character, not the star of the show.

On draft at #2. Pours is almost black with deep red hues. The aroma is of dark roasted malt, with just a hint of cherries. Palate is full with good carbonation. The taste is very good roasted malt flavor with a hint of cherry taste--that doesn’t dominate the porter qualities. Slight hop kick at the end finishes off a very nice brew.

Draft at Alehouse #2. Black color with medium light brown head that diminished slowly. Medium aroma of roasted coffee and smoke. Medium to full body. Full porter flavor with very small cherry flavor. Good brew that was weak on cherry.

On draft at Alehouse #2 Pours black with a short tan head. Aroma is smoky coffee and cherry sweetness. Flavor is mostly the same with a touch of vanilla, and some nuts mixed in as well.. Quite creamy and smooth on the palate. It amazed me how easy this brew went down. The cherry definitely doesn’t overwhelm you with this one. A very nice porter!

Pours dark brown, almost black, with a small tan head. Taste is coffee, smokey, and slight sweetness from the cherries I assume. This beer has low cherry flavor, especially compared to Bell’s Cherry Stout. More drinkable than the Bells in my opinion. Dry body, but very enjoyable. One of the better beers at Barleys.

On tap: Medium brown hue with okay off-white head and some lace. Aroma hinted of toasted malt, nutty, fruity (but not too strong), floral hops, buttery, and smoky. The cherry taste is hidden mostly below the porter character of this beer, it adds a slight sour twang to the brew. Additional tastes on the palate were smoke, nut and mocha. Acidic finish. Clean and lively mouthfeel. Okay beer, the fruit is low keyed and makes this beer quite quaffable.
