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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
