COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle at Camp Beer. Pours a cloudy amber with a small white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a strong cherry and oak. Thin mouthfeel with a light malt and strong cherry flavor with nice sweet finish. Easy to drink, a very impressive fruit beer from New Glarus.

Bottle. Pours brown no head. Funky cherry aroma. Taste is like Belgian red with a stout profile

Bottle at home. 2011 Vintage. Pour is black with a deep crimson tint and a frothy off-give head and great lacing. Sweet sour cherries, cough syrup, cranberry juice, light toffee, and raspberries in the aroma. Awesome, fresh, fruity smell. Taste is pretty tart, sour cherries, light cocoa, a touch of roast, sweet raspberries and cherries, bread, and wood with a lightly smoky/tart finish. Sticky mouthfeel with high carbonation. I would not call this a stout at all. More like a tart fruit beer, with a touch of roast, balancing it out nicely. It doesnít bother me though, this is some pretty tasty stuff; much like all of New Glarusí fruit beers.

Shared by some dude at darkness day. Aroma and taste of a cherry sore throat drop. Little too sweet for me.

Dark brown with red edges, aroma like a lumens cough drop. Taste is cherry with a bit of chocolate and only a hint of roast.

I really want to know the story behind why this is called a Cherry Stout. 12 oz. bottle served in a FW mini snifter. A: Pours a clear dark cherry color with a light tan head. Some light bubbles and and small specs of lace are left on the glass. S: Smells exactly like cherry coke. I mean exactly like it. The only difference is when I put my nose into the glass the bubbles arenít hitting my nose. T: Dark cherry with a slight sour tang to it. Mild black licorice as well. Almost candied in nature with a high sweetness to it. M: Pretty drinkable with a light body and smooth finish. O: This was an odd beer. While I didnít hate I didnít particular enjoy it. It was a nice beer to try and I would recommend it for cherry candy fanatics. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-27-2012

Bottle. Cherry and chocolate smells. Taste of a lot of tart cherry with a dark chocolate covered cherry after taste. Very different. Very good.

Pours a rusty deep ruby umber color with a finger of eggshell... aromas are pure fresh juicy black cherry, candy, touches of sour cranberry and oak. Wow... thought from the nose I was in for another messy fruit heavy beer but wait a minute... this is full of smooth silky fruit notes of juicy sour cherries that meld beautifully with a rich slightly creamy dark chocolate that lingers and gets woody and earthy as the sweetness moves away and the stoutish flavors linger. Damn this is soooo good !

Serving: 12 oz. bottle via trade. It pours a dark brown with a scant tan head. The nose has a potent dose of cherry candy. The flavor starts off with that sweet cherry candy note and segues into an odd bitter note. There is some paper, slight wood, and a vegetal malt note. Not sure where the stout is in this one. Light to medium body. I canít figure out what all the hype is about. Overly sweet and a terrible mix of flavors.

Bottle from trade. Aroma and flavors of straight cherries. I have no idea why this is called a stout, but hey, it's awesome. This one has the smoothest palate of any beer I've ever had, and it's not really sweet. The cherry flavor is very similar to the Belgian Red, but it's more subtle and sessionable. Excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
