COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available from February to May, Cherry Porter is the perfect beer to take you from winter into spring. The rich chocolate flavor from our dark malts warm the soul while it’s still cold outside and the light hint of cherry reminds you of the approaching spring blossoms.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2010
Pours a muddy brown color. Aromas of cherries, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is a subdued cherry taste, not a big as I expected. Finishes like a cherry tootsie roll pop. Surreal taste, quite remarkable. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. This is a great beer.

5000 (6265) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2009
Bottle:   Black, edges of deep brown, thin beige head, few rings of lacing.   Chocolate covered cherry nose, yet not as sweet.   Similar tongue, chocolate, cherries, with a little bit of that sugary syrupy sweetness, albiet not as sweet.   Could stand to be a bit bigger in body.   Despite not being as heavy as I think this beer deserves, its certainly better than I was hoping.   Surprising beer that I had tucked away in the back of the fridge for too long.

Bottle, thanks Eric. Pours brown, with a red hue. Aroma is chocolate and cherries. Flavor is chocolate, roasted malt, and cherries. Body is rather light. A nice one.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 16, 2008
Bottle courtesy of kyzr. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of cherries and caramel. Tastes of chocolate, cherrie pie, some tarte hints and a touch of roastiness. Mouthfeel is velvety. Very enjoyable.

bhensonb (10983) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle from John’s Market in Portland, OR. Dark reddish amber, very dark, with a pink tinged light head. Aromas of dark roasted malt, chocolate and dark fruit. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is cherry over coffee and chocolate. Goes down well. Reminds of chocolate covered cherries sans sugar creme. Finish is dry roast with cherry and a little coffee. Surprisingly good. Might make an aperitif. Woke me up.

BuckeyeBoy (2695) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 2, 2008
12oz Bottle Pours out a dark brown with a little red. Topped with a brownish red head. Aroma of milk chocolate and roast malt. Tast of malts and a little fruit. A bitter end.

DuffMan (6683) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 14, 2008
Bottle. Pours a nice deep brown with ruby red highlights. Aroma immediately brings Dr. Pepper to mind, so not a great first impression. But let the head settle a little and chocolate becomes much more apparent. The palate is nicely balanced with sweet chocolate malt and black cherries in a decent balance, although this is certainly leaning toward being a tad too sweet. Overall I enjoyed this, but I do have a soft spot for this kind of "porter hybrid" type of beer.

AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - JUL 3, 2008
smells like a cherry pop, looks like a cherry pop mixed with root beer (uh oh!) - taste is actually better than I expected but tastes mostly like a sour cherry pop with unsweetened chocolate. Not much in the way of an actual beer in my opinion. Reminds of those old Diet Chocolate Raspberry pops flavored with Sacharin, so, in a word, yuck!

Dark red/brown pour. Hints of chocolate with a very subdued cherry taste toward the end. Great Flavor

jake65 (2613) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Bottle: Brown pour with a nice sized beige head. Aroma is rich with chocolate cover cherries. Bits of roast. Flavor is more porter oriented than fruit beer, some nice roast and chocolate with a subtle cherry accent. Much better than I had expected. Still, the cherry flavoring leaves a bit to be desired.
