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.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2006 Thanks to Brigadier for the bottles. Pours a very rich dark color with hints of red. A great head that dissipates quickly. The smell of cherries are of abundance. The palate is very smooth and fuirty. Overall a very nice beer.

Pours a rich brown froth that dissipates leaving a gloppy lace. Color is a superb rich chesnut brown, very dark but not opaque. A wonder of flavors. Fruitier than most cherry stouts, but expertly done. Afew early mettalic notes, but they disappeared once it got a chance to breathe. The cherries here are so distinctive to New Glarus, very rich-flavored and very tart. Not really stout-like, or porter-like, so a point subtracted there. Iíd call it a íCherry Brown". Really nice.

hopscotch (9060) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2011 Bottle... DLD06... Dark, clear, caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, well-tanned head. The nose is of chocolate and black cherries. When I take a sip, Iím confused... is this a stout brewed with cherries or is it a chocolately, dark, fruit beer? Light cocoa and big cherries in the flavor. Tart, but way too sweet at the same time. Medium to full-bodied and ultra silky with fizzy carbonation. Finishes sweet and tart. Odd bird, this one. But not bad at all... just dissonant and not really my thing.

purple brown pour with an off white head. lambic like nose with a discernable cherry scent. slightly sour cherry flavor with a dryness. sweet finish. oak is evident here. this is a weirdhybrid that grows on me. really not much stout like about this, but it ainít bad. not one i could drink more than one of in a sitting. the sour really creeps on me after a bit.

Pours dark brown, with a light tan head. Aromas are cherries and malt. Flavors are cherries, chocolate, and malt. This seems like a little darker, little more sour belgain red. Really good. Thanks to footbalm for this bottle.

Pours very dark brown, almost black, with reddish tints. The head is small and disappears quickly, but does leave some lacing. Aroma is cherries, chocolate, and malt. First taste is like to bottom of the cherry soda you overloaded with cherry syrup. The chocolate and coffee come thru as you drink, This is a very good fruit beer because itís still beer! Itís not all fluffy and wimpy. Good stuff!

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2006 Not as good or as strong a fruit beer as the Belgian Red but still a pretty good. I little more tart than the Belgian Red also. Has a nice dry finish.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2006
Pours a very dark brown, with a thin effervescent tan head. Aroma is earthy malts and lots of cherries. Tastes of lots of tarts cherries with a slight coffee note and some woody oak up front. Cherry tartness lingers long after you swallow and thereís just a bit of roasted maltiness, and a fair amount of alcohol on the finish. The body is really too thin and carbonated to be a stout.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2006
A great disappointment. Iím a big fan of chocolate covered cherries. No, not the overly sweet ones with thick sugar goo inside but the more upscale ones. The idea of a nice, rich stout that combines chocolate and cherry flavor is enticing. This wasnít. A deep chestnut liquid poured out, topped by a small tan head. The nose contained elements of cherries (dark and tart), chocolate, oak, and vanilla. Yet is wasnít seductive. Just there. Too light in the body for a stout and too much carbonation. The flavor was a big disappointment. Some cherry notes and lots of alcohol. All in all, a less than satisfying drink.

At first, this comes across as nothing like a stout - itís medium dark brown/amber in color, and the aroma is more like a kriek (which isnít entirely surprising), with lots of oak, cherry, cinnimon, nutmeg, a hint of ginger, some background cocoa - the flavor, at first, is quite "kriekish" also, medium tart, with loads of cherry and moderate spice - however, the more your palate adjusts, the more you notice the stout-like qualities coming to the fore - vanilla and oak lead the way, followed by chocolate and caramel malts, a hint of coffee and roasted characteristics - the overall progression of flavors is like nothing Iíve ever experienced in a beer - this is the most unique beer Iíve had in a long time.
