We never shy away from flavor at Funky Buddha, and this beer is an example of that. Our smooth, luxurious milk porter is infused here with real cocoa nibs and cherries for that taste that’s straight out of a box of chocolate truffles. Waves of coffee, chocolate, and cream descend into a lingering tartness and ripe, red fruit flavor from the cherries.

Pours cola-black with a medium light tan head. Aroma is rich malts, chocolate and a sweet syrup. Tastes like a chocolate covered cherry with chocolate as the star. Pretty straightforward. Not bad.

Poured a deep brown almost black color with light amber highlights; aromas of light cherries, chocolate, roast and earth. Flat or match the aromas owth nice cherry, vanilla and chocolate very nice and quite enjoyable.

Fflight pour on tap at the brewery (Oakland. Park, FL). Pours a deep dark brownish ruby hue, some blackish glow and dark reddish edges. Frothy reddish brown a frothy ring, mellow lacing atop. Aromas are nice and chocolatey, dark and creamy with a touch of vanilla, caramel and biscuit. Carmelized, earthy with milk chocolate, cherries and a touch of dark fruit. More cocoa nibs, dry and toasty, bitter chocolate. Initial is medium bodied, a bit of creamy and dark chocolate melange, mousse and toasty malts. Tootsie rolls and touches of black cherry, faint vanilla. Really strikes a potent flavor combo here, complex and deep. A light enough body to do some sessioning without being thin or baudy. Toasty, biscuity, some brown malts. Dry, a touch bitter with that lingering bitter chocolate. This is really good. A rich complex chocolatey appeal that rolls over the palate liberally. Delicious stuff, pretty hue and pour, and a nice nose that doesn’t quite give you the goods. A winner.

Draft. A huge chocolate and fruity nose. Pitch black. Minimal light brown head. Excellent lacing. Taste is exactly as described. A decadent but not cloying chocolate with a sugary cherry finish. Always just the right amount of balance between sugar and roast. Very nice.

wow.............. Very sharp, strong, and shitty, semi-rotten flat cherry syrup flavored garbage. This is offensive.

Growler: Huge rocky tan head over a purple-ish brown body. The ashy, lightly roasted, sour cherry and dark chocolate aroma also has some band-aid esters as well. Smoked burnt malts with an odd sweetness countering the lactic twang and fruit. Seem at odds with itself. The mouth feel after the initial carbonation wears off is sort of blah, again ashy and medicinal. This should be nutty, sweet and lush but alas is none of that. Yet another disappointing beer from this brewery.

Uhhhhh reallly? Black color with tan head. Aroma is oddly fermented trash, berrys, coffee grounds, earthy and chemical sweet. Taste is misplaced sweetness, tartness and earthy cocoa. I dont dig this. Sorry.

On tap at Orchid Island Brewing. Pours black with a creamy light head, which dissapates rather quickly. Aroma is chocolate forward with a hint of cherries. Taste is pretty amazing! Funky Buddha can do things with beer that are just amazing. As you drink this beer, you have the experience of biting into a piece of candy, with the rich chocolate flavors followed by the tangy bite of bing cherries. I liked this beer!
