This unique ale begins its life as a powerful and richly sweet stout to which Michigan tart cherries are added. The resulting black brew is complex, sweet and tart with a distinct cherry finish. It will improve with cellaring. Available September - May

Amazing. This is the perfect blend of cherry, coffee, and dark chocolate flavor The aroma is also simply amazing. I never really liked Stouts, but this one takes the prize

A very good fruit beer, pours dark with slight amber tones. Somewhat acidic, smooth cherry presence, maybe chocoalte and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel and finishes the same.

Too sweet and too acidic, cherry flavor comes through way to much, typical of most fruit beers I have tried.

On tap at Bells. Small tan head that quickly dissipated, sparse lacing, fine sized bubbles, no visible carbonation, opaque, and a dark brown hue. The aroma was malty, coffee and cherries. The flavor was sweet, acidic, tart, tangy, cherries, mild coffee, and a little chocolate. Palate was smooth. Light-medium body.

Pours black with a thin tan head that stays. Aroma is of roast malt, coffee, and a mix of tart and sweet cherries. Flavor is a mix of tart and sweet cherries up front, roast malt, mild coffee, and a slight chocolate. Nice rich beer.

Thanks to Beerhandy for this!! poured black with a redish brown head. Aroma is a sweet roasted malt with a hint of cherry. Sweet chocolate and coffee flavor with a cherry finish. The cherries don’t overpower this. I usually don’t care for fruit beers too much but this one is well done.

This brew is as dark as night.I wouldn’t normally drink a fruit beer but since this is Stout also...Nose is,gee, guess cherry but not like some sweet Maraschino cherries but dark cherry and heavy dark chocolate and expresso.Very nice thick and delish. Thanks to csbosox for finally getting me to taste this brew.

Strange brew from the zoo this one was. Nothing like i was expecting at all. Fruity and light bodied with the sour cherries standing out above all other. Not bad, but not really good either.
