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 shared at Bruceís pad, soured via an IP in íMerica, 19/09/13. Dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head. Nose is cherry forward, light chocolate notes, fruit cake, cocoa poweder. Taste comprises sweet notes, lgiht cocoa, earthy notes, mineral tones, cherry and chocolate brownies. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish. Decent enough if a little over sweet. Wouldnít have this as a fruit beer !!! Stout all over !

A: The pour is a mildly muddled mahogany color (apologies for the consonance). S: Pure cherries on the nose. A really nice sweetness and fruit note that is almost reminiscent of the Wisconsin Belgian Red. T: The cherries come through strongest off the bat and are nice and sweet, but not artificial tasting at all. As the beer warms and subsequent sips are taken, a nice chocolate flavor comes out. This one has an almost tootsie roll taste to it. M: The body is medium with a nice moderate carbonation to it. D: One of the best of the Unplugged beers to this point. I really loved the great cherry flavor and the stout component underneath.

Bottle at Suneís - Thanks again. Clear red/brown - white edges. High cherry, light balsamic, light wood-glue, woody, sweetness, sweet brown sugar feeling & taste on the lips. Not much stout taste sensation - it reminds a lot of the Enigma !!

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Bottle thanks to Rando7. One of the tastiest beers Iíve ever had and definitely the best of this genre. Pours black with reddish hue and a thin reddish white head. Nose is cherry pie and chocolate bar. Taste is out of this world creamy cherry and blends into a smooth chocolate finish. Some tartness and slight black cherry soda adds to the complexity. The body is a little thin and most would rate down for that, but the taste is so phenomenal and this is so much better than other fruit beers I had to score this high. BM me if you can hook me up with more! - Original Rating 5/17/2010 - 4.8

12 oz. bottle, bonusíd by ekoerper (thanks Ed), pours a dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma screams truckloads of cherries - nothing artificial about them - smells like pure, fresh cherries, along with a touch of the oak barrels, though not very prominent. There isnít really any notice that this is a stout. Flavour brings out potent cherries upfront, atop a more recognizable (than the nose) stout background. There is a thick malt backing that gives the cherries a big body to sit on top of, making it even more complex. Oak barrels round this off beautifully, but intensifying the complexity. This is truly superb. Cherry (or any fruit) stouts have never succeeded to impress me... until now. Most excellent stuff.

Tmoney99 (13587) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured dark brown color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate dark cherry and sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy tart cherry sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

Christian (12921) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2007
Reddish very dark brown with a disappearing white head. Aroma dominated by cherry (acid-y) and oak which has notes of vanilla and coconut. Sweet with fruity acid and a long lasting dryness. Very interesting experiment, but the coconut turned me off.
