This is Danís 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.

Wow I really enjoyed this. Very dark redish brown, little head. Smells like a cherry coke with hint of dark chocolate. Smooth milk chocolatey in first sip, but finishes like fresh dark chocolate covered cherries.

Perhaps the fruit flavored stout Iíve had. Not as strong a fruit beer as the Belgian Red, or as a kriek, but you can definitely taste the cherries. This would be a great beer to introduce someone to stouts. Not too much alchohol or bitterness, but still reasonably complex.

From bottle. Pours deep black burgundy with thin khaki head. Very up front cherry with something dark smells. Starts with malty sweet stout flavors and changes to cherry flavors. Very crisp ending. Enjoyed this a lot, will buy more.

From WeeheavySD. Phenomenal beer. lightly tart, chocolate and coconut nose and the same in the flavor with maybe a little wood and smoke. It was hard to wrap my head around this beer other then to say it was one of the more uniqrue and delicious beers Ive had.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 Dan has done it again. This is one amazing fruit beer. A strong taste of cherries and a great aroma and appearance. It goes down smooth and has a wonderful aftertaste. The oak taste only adds to this wonderful beer. I will be sad to see this beer become retired. (I only wish dan could keep this one as one of the year rounders!)

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2007 Man, this beer is HUGE. Its one step shy of being syrup. A huge cherry taste with a huge boquet. Slightly smokey aftertaste. One of the best Unplugged beers in my opinion.

A great tasting Cherry Stout. Smooth Cherry taste hard to tell its a beer. New Glarus does an amazing job with their fruit beers

Poured a short, fizzy head which dissipated rapidly. Was deep brown in color with expected red hue. For my taste, cherry taste overwhelmed. Not a fan.

Just when you thought New Glarus had done it all with fruit here comes the Unpugged Cherry Stout. In my opinion there is no other brewery that uses fruit as well in any style of beer. Nice dark red color with a light aroma of bing cherries as well as vanilla. The body is a little thin but the flavors of oak and chocolate take over making it a nice change of pace for a stout. The more I drink the more complex the beer gets. Get this while you can as it will be gone soon and may never be back.

This is a delicious beer. Black redish body with a tan redish head. Aroma is cherries, chocolate, coffee, maple syrup. Taste is something like Godiva truffle, chocolate with a omnipresent fresh cherries. The sweetness is well balanced and not overwhelming.. Dan Carey, your are right.. this is art.
