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.

Aroma is a bit off-putting. It reminds me, uncannily, of Ludenís Cherry cough drops. Flavor is a quite pronounced sweet-tart cherry that dominates.

Bottle from a trade with Beerlando. Thx. The pour is dark rubi red with a thin edgy pink head. The aroma bares strongly the notes of artificial or preserved and sweetend cherries - just like the ones we use in our rice pudding at christmas. Besides the cherry there are some faint caramelnotes in the aroma too. The taste is odd and still it strikes me that the cherrys seems artificial and not fresh, sour and tempting. They are all sweet. Besides the markedly cherry there are strong notes of sugar candy and caramels. I dont really think that it has the body to back up the taste. Its quite thin but with a creamy palate that also has a pickin attitude from the alcohol.

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.

Reddish brown colour with a nice head. Sweet aroma of notes of spices. Sweet flavour with notes of berries, malt alcohol and ends up little sour and acid.

pours a ruby-tinted brown, with a light tan head that retains ok and leaves not-so-much lace. nose is quite caramelly - lots of brown-sugar sweetness, unperpinned by some cherry cough syrup notes. flavor is frankly weird, with a good amount of cherry sweetness up front that is perhaps a bit merged with some brown-ale sweetness, and finished with some oaky astringency. nothing at all stout-like about this beer, which is just kind of a weird mess. I didnít find it completely unpleasant, but I didnít have any use for it either.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 Bottle shared by Paul thanks man. Pours a mahogany body (the only good thing about this beer). Thin bubbly head. Its SA tipplebock with a lower ABV, just a mess of oxidation paper, soy, maple, grain, degregation of malt and hop character, no cherries nothing good here. Apparantly this bottle was 4 years old upon having it. I was going to score this 0.8 but ill give this the benefit of the doubt that this was at least a 3.0 or better. Iíd love to re-rate the new release.

not at all what I was expecting. Pours reddish brown with small head. Aroma of sweet cherry and indistinct malt. Flavor profile of a cherry fruit beer. Nothing like a stout. No toasted malts. No roasted qualities. Instead a weak cherry beverage. Thin. Watery. Boo

12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with hints of transparency, not as dark as your typical stout. Aroma is of dark fruits, sweet cherries and light caramel malt. Mouthfeel is thin with moderate carbonation. Taste of a chocolate covered cherry extract, much like other New Glarus beers that use fruit this beer is WAY too sweet for my liking.

ABUSEDGOAT (2350) - California, USA - AUG 30, 2006
I decided to taste the Bells and New Glarus Cherry Stouts side by side. Iíve never had a cherry stout before. Bells poured a dark black body with a tan head and decent lacing. New Glarus poured a very ílightí black body with a white head and had little lacing. Aroma in Bells was like any other stout, all the dark malts and notes, not much for hops. Had a small cherry aroma and a little in the flavor. New Glarus was overpowering with Cherries. It was hard to identify it as a stout. NG was very light bodied and very sweet. Sipping Bells after NG made it hard to taste anything cherry. Itís basically impossible to compare these. One is sweet and fruity with some stouty notes, the other is a stout with some light cherry notes. In the end itís personal preference.

Dark red pour with short, off-white head. The aroma is dominated by oak which seems magnified by the smell of cherry juice. Surprisingly, there is little hint of roasted malts that you expect in a stout. The flavor is more cherry than stout. In fact, thereís little stout in the flavor. Instead, you get very tart cherry on top of vanilla and sugar and a strong hint of wood. Thin to medium body with some stickiness, but more watery than most stouts. Moderate carbonation. Acidic finish. A lot of flavors going on here, but they donít work together for me ó especially the oak aging ó compared to Bells Cherry Stout, for example.
