COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who says brewers can’t pluck your heartstrings? We’ll play right to your heart (and palatte and belly) by taking our already smooth and rich Double Brown Stout and taking it out to a night on the town. By adding real Red Tart and Dark Sweet Cherries at the beginning of fermentation and (Organic/Fair Trade) cocoa nibs at the end of conditioning, once a year we treat out Double Brown Stout lavishly. Don’t be a selfish lover, share this with someone special.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Growler from Brewed in Fort Worth. Pours dark brown with a small, beige head. Aroma of earth, dark rye bread, slight cherry, dark chocolate, coffee, and toasted nuts. The aroma implies dessert, but this beer is NOT sweet. Flavors of coffee, toast, earth, and slight bittersweet chocolate make appearance. Finishes with a slight cherry hint and an aftertaste that is bitter and earthy, yet slight astringent from the cherries. Begs for a sip of water after a while. Medium-heavy bodied, moderate carbonation, no real alcohol presence. Interesting beer, but I wish the aftertaste was better.

Dark brown, nearly black. Aroma of cooked cherries and chocolate. Full body, almost syrupy. Heavy roasted malt and cherry flavors.

onceblind (5726) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Deep inky black pour with a nice little khaki head. Lovely, lovely aroma of sweet fleshy cherry and chocolate cake mix. Lovely flavor that’s full but doesn’t come across as boozy. Lovely chocolatiness and nice cherry fruity tones that’s not candy-like, for a change. Lots of fleshy cherry flavor with a nice chocolate cake finish.

Brandon1989 (437) - Euless, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Pours a near black with some ruby shining through it when held up to the sunlight. There is a one-finger tan head that had great retention and left good lacing around the glass. The aroma is cherry chocolate candy bar, cocoa powder, extremely sweet, sugary, but mostly just a mixture of chocolate and cherry. The taste is bitter chocolate/cherry. You do pick up on the alcohol as well even while it was still really cold. The mouthfeel seems light to medium and the drinkability is low in my opinion.

ilovedarkbeer (2479) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2015
Pours a dark brown color with a foamy canvas colored head. Overwhelming notes of cherry tootsie roll suckers. Nice smooth mouthfeel and long finish.

lownote (327) - USA - APR 15, 2015
Pours black with a ring of off white head. Nice cherry aroma with a tiny bit of some roasted stuff as well. Taste is sweet first with some background cherry fruit and a hint of roasted flavor. Thick with a bit of carbonation. The flavor is a bit muted.

darb85 (168) - Canton, Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2015
Very heavy cherry nose. Sweet cherry start with a little chocolate finish. Tastes like cherry jubilee in a glass. Good in a small pour

TizzleJizzle (736) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2015
On draft. Poured a dark brown with a thin tan head and some nice lacing. Taste of chocolate, roasted malts, and a faint dark fruit finish. High carbonation, medium body. This is one of my favorite Baltic porters.
