COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is Dan’s Gold Medal winning "Unplugged Cherry Stout." This ale is aged in Oak barrels to promote the spontaneous fermentation. Eight Wisconsin malted barleys combined with Wisconsin Montmorency Cherries make for a complex and sublime taste experience that you may never find again.

Brownish Red color with some cherry, roast and minor chocolate notes. Good, but its lost some flavor due to age.

Bottle from Homer321, thanks! Pour is dark brown with reddish hints. Aroma is tons of cherry upfront with some tartness. Flavor is incredible cherry stout. I can’t even describe it another way. Just fantastic.

queenholly (2861) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Weihenweizen. Slightly sweet tart cherry and cola aroma - reminds a bit of a cherry coke or Dr. Pepper. Deep chestnut red with a moderate beige head. Sweet tart fresh cherry flavor, nondescript malt and light oak flavor. Medium creamy body, soft carbonation. Absolutely un-stout-like, but absolutely delicious!

Gift from RamyG4. Awesome aroma of chocolate covered cherries. The appearance is deep brown, slight translucence, red hue, off-white head. The flavor is big time cherry, chocolate, caramel, vanilla. The finish is cherries, light resin. Medium to medium/thick in body. Nicely done.

Clear cola coloured body with a brownish tint and a thin, one centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of pure cherries, fresh, sour, pungent - cherries, from the top of the bottle cap to the whole of the glass - that is an amazing and almost fake smelling beer! Medium to Full-bodied; Strong cherry flavour with a lot of sugars, a good malt backbone and a hint of oak and yeast in the back of the flavour. Aftertaste is long lasting, hitting some sour notes from the cherries, a bit of a effervsence hiding some malt, a lot of oak, bunches of sweetness and more cherries than I’ve tasted in most beers! Overall, simply a great beer, but coming from the brewery, you’d pretty much expect that, but this is above that, and quite simply one of the best beers I’ve had recently. Not as great as Belgian Red, but this was a different beer altogether; Cannot be missed - if you see this, buy it, now. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Discount Liqour in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 05-September-2012 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-April-2013.
