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.

Pour is a deep-rich cherry-red-brown with a light, mild head. Aroma is of roasted cherries and earthy notes. Taste is lightly sweet and with a sour kick. Lively carbonation. Overall very good beer.

Another really tasty fruit beer by NG. Robust chocolate covered cherries. Deep rich nutty, roasty flavors and a nice sweet/sour cherry backbone. A little medicinal to me but still great.

Surprisingly doesn’t seem like a stout taste but bold and fruity. Wish I could find it more!

Damico (2554) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Pours unclear dark coffee in color with a smaller beige head. The aroma brings potent sweet and lightly zingy tart cherries very pleasant and prevalent in the nose. The flavor brings the cherry notes as a backbone over the roasted malts, but they blend well nicely. The Wisconsin cherries are sweet with a very smooth tangy tartness that I prefer over the Michigan cherries.

jcnielsen (2044) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with white head. Strong medicinal/cough drop cherry aroma with some hints of dark malts underneath. Tart cherry, malty flavor, some hints of oak. Interesting beer. It isn’t up to par with Belgian Red or Raspberry Tart, but it is a cool fruit beer.

McGrupp612 (139) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Almost transparent dark brown pour with red highlight, small light tan head. Aroma reminds me of cherry coke, with slight cherry tartness. Flavor is very cherry forward with slight bitterness, and light chocolate and dark roasted malt. Lighter body with heavier carbonation. Overall I enjoyed this, but I also love cherry coke. I would probably prefer to drink the cherry coke than trade for this.

wchesser (1144) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Gold medal winning? Not by me. This is straight up cherry cola. Incredibly thin and bubbly. Big cherry nose and almost cloyingly sweet. Very thin, like a dark lager. Tastes like cherry cola with some hoppy bitterness. Yeah, not good. Rare failure for New Glarus, especially from the Thumbprint/Unplugged.

Poured from 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky brown with almost no head while having a fair amount of carbonation. Aroma is lots of cherry juice and just a hint of chocolate. Taste follows...very heavy on the cherry flavor and just the slightest amount of chocolate.
