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.

12 oz bottle @Tampa Wkly Gathering @BT-pours a dissipating tan head and deep red/mahogany color. Aroma is spicy cherry, some medium malt. Taste is spicy cherry pie, secondary medium malt, wood. Doesn’t seem to get the stout over the cherry.

Christian (10778) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2007
Reddish very dark brown with a disappearing white head. Aroma dominated by cherry (acid-y) and oak which has notes of vanilla and coconut. Sweet with fruity acid and a long lasting dryness. Very interesting experiment, but the coconut turned me off.

Tmoney99 (10074) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured dark brown color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate dark cherry and sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy tart cherry sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle courtesy of CaptainCougar, thanks! Very dark brown, small tan head. Aroma of chocolate covered brandied cherries. Taste has cherries, vanilla, smooth and silky. The fruit overwhelms the stout.

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
A: The pour is a mildly muddled mahogany color (apologies for the consonance). S: Pure cherries on the nose. A really nice sweetness and fruit note that is almost reminiscent of the Wisconsin Belgian Red. T: The cherries come through strongest off the bat and are nice and sweet, but not artificial tasting at all. As the beer warms and subsequent sips are taken, a nice chocolate flavor comes out. This one has an almost tootsie roll taste to it. M: The body is medium with a nice moderate carbonation to it. D: One of the best of the Unplugged beers to this point. I really loved the great cherry flavor and the stout component underneath.

Bottle shared at Bruce’s - thanks to Colin. Pours cloudy amber with a light cream head. Lots of tangy cherry in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor, further tangy cherry, mellow pit bitterness, slight funk. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, ripe and tangy cherry, fruity sugars. Quite tasty and very drinkable.
