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.

Bottled. Poured dark with a small head but lots of bubbles. Aroma is the star of this show, with promised chocolate and cherries in spades. A bit thin, and the cherries show a lot more than the chocolate, but it is interesting and worth a pour.

On tap.. Jet black pour. Not much aroma. Thin taste not much flavor. Light enough for the beach

Delirium (645) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Draught. Pours black with thin tan head. Aroma of boozy chocolate cherries and roast malt. Flavor is a nice dark-sweet-malt baltic porter, with the chocolate-covered cherries again. The cherry flavor is done very well, prominent but not overwhelming, and more of a cherry-fruit taste than the kind of cloying candied-cherry flavor you sometimes find. Very nice.

pretty heavily cherry infused, needs a little more chocolate for balance. but not bad for a brown stout.

BelgianBeerGal (3722) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Star of the show for me during SB50 in WF. Dark brown pour with a brown head of tiny bubbles. Aroma is dusty chocolate and coffee. Great flavor with coffee, chocolate and meaty cherries. Well balanced and no fake flavorings. So nice I had it twice!

Strong cherry and chocolate aromas. Pours pitch black with no lacing but good carbonation. Strong cherry and chocolate taste. With dark chocolate aftertaste

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

onceblind (6929) - 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 (496) - 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.

Pours a dark brown color with a foamy canvas colored head. Overwhelming notes of cherry tootsie roll suckers. Nice smooth mouthfeel and long finish.
