Cherries? Great fruit. Stout? Great beer. Cherry Stout? Unfortunate combination. I don’t understand it, but whenever two of my favorite things are combined, I always seem to be disappointed. The only time two Rights made a Right was Willie and Waylon (and Bob and the Band, I suppose).

Had this one bottled thanks to Wyl!! Cloudy, dark brown pour with a rapidly dissipating, fizzy tan head, strong cherry cola nose, profoundly artificial cherry sweetness completely dominates and overpowers whatever else was meant to be going on here. Sickly sweet finish. May not finish this one.

One sip then fed the drain. This did not work at all. However, i would not hesitate to recommend any other New Glarus brew. This beer reminded me of the cough syrup I got from the doctor as a kid.
