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.

The aroma explodes with maraschino cherries and some chocolate on the back end. Itís a beautiful looking beer with a thick head and really dark red hue. The taste starts with sweet, sugary, maraschino cherry and ends with a darker chocolate/caramel finish. I like this beer a lot, but itís very sweet.

Poured in to my bruery tulip, dark brown with a thin head. Aroma of alcohol and cherries combine to make a cough syrup like aroma. Taste is way better than the nose, lots of cherry juice thins out this stout, the oak is there but the malts arenít very present. Not a bad change of pace but not a real stout.

Bottle drank at bu11zeyeís 10,000th rating tasting. The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of very sweet cherries. The flavor is very similar. There is a ton of cherry syrup, as well a some lightly roasted malt. Overall, the beer is very sweet. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle. It pours a very deep red color with a big khaki head that settles to a nice thin layer. The aroma has huge notes of cherry syrup and dense maltiness. Not a hint of stout here. The flavor is the same. Huge, dense cherry syrup, and beautiful malt character. I donít pick up much oak if any or roasted malts for that matter. It does have a rather hot, spicy finish that is accentuated by a higher than normal carbonation level. The body is full. Mild hints of oak in the very end. Great beer.

Itís got a nice pleasant chocolate cherry flavor backed up by a burnt malty backbone, but the palate comes off as unappealing with a syrupy and watery texture. Still worth checking out if youíre in the mood for something new.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Plenty of cherry red i the dark beer. The nose is cherry Ludens. It tastes like that, too. Some roasted notes but that cherry reigns supreme. Tasty stuff.

Originally reviewed: 7/8/10. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. This pours a dark cola-color - similar to uncreamed-coffee. Thereís a thin tan head on top, but lacks depth. Light lace sticks. I smell cherry Jolly Ranchers, cherry juice, etc. The fruit comes full-force in the scent. Some light funkiness to it. Slightly musty. The mouth is creamy. Carbonation level is moderate (high for a stout, but decent for a fruit beer). Body is full, but not filling. Wonderful tart cherries all over the flavor. They start out a bit sweet, but have that faint-puckering tartness on the finish. Superb. No roasted aspects noted. I could drink this all day. Wonderful beer. Danís done it again. Whether itís Raspberry Tart, Belgian Red, Cran-bic, or the Cherry Stout, Dan has perfected the art of the fruit beer. Iím blown away.

Bottle, pour is a light black, with a bit of a reddish tint in there, aroma is of cherries and the flavour is a bit roasty up front then finishes with the cherry flavour of the belgian red, overall this one is a enjoyable, fairly sweet but good

Bottle. Pours a dark, clear reddish-brown with a medium off-white head. Aroma of cherries, caramel, roast. Taste is very sweet, lightly tart. Dry roasted, woody finish. Medium bodied, oily texture, moderate carbonation.

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.
