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.

Pours with a deep red-brown body toped by a medium thick head with some lacing. The arom si bitter and full of oaky notes with a little chocolate. The flavor is sweet and full of cherry notes with a touch of chocolate. Not much of a stout. Medium to full bodied and smooth.

2006 bottle consumed on 6/14/06. Pours a dark blackish color with a small off white head. a red hue singes the top and bottom of the beer. Nose is sweet and cherry like with some cocoa powder. Palate is kinda thin with a stingy feeling to it. Mouth is sour cherries and the chocolate seems to have disapeared or been overtaken by the cherries. def not balanced well.

Again, thanks to Bert! An interesting beer, ruby red, deep with color, definitely not stout-like in appearance. Thin head covering. Aroma was chocolate and cherry. Flavor was chocolate, cherry, and wood (cedar? I liked Bertís term, "sawdust"). Light tartness. No roast or other stout properties. Thin mouthfeel.

Small light brown head, retention is OK, little laceing. Clear, ruby red/ brown color,a not very Stoutish appearence. Nose is woody, sawdust, cedar notes, cherry, berry notes, faint roastiness. Wood dominates. Body is med/light, lightly spritzy. Light spicey cherry flavors, wierd wood. Chocolate? roast? A Stout? What the hell is this? Dry, spicey finish. Props to OhioDad for the trade!

Bottle (thanks to Kevin). Sweet/sour aroma as you open the bottle. Dark brown with a reddish tint. Small head which is quickly reduced. As you pour a hefty artificial candy like aroma hits your nose followed by notes of stale red wine and vanilla. The flavor is dominated by the same candy like sweetness as the nose followed by some caramel, and almonds. Balsamic vinegar shows up as it warms. I do not taste much stout in this one. Rather fizzy with nice mouth feel below the Co2. The beer gets better as you get down the glass, but it it tastes artificial (even though it probably isnít). Too sweet for me. It tastes like a light stout with cherry concentrate and sugar added at bottling and then pasteurized??? Rerate 6 minutes later: Had it with a piece of my mother in laws brownie, which made it better (from 2.7-3.1) - but still not beer I would like to try again.

Pours brownish black with red highlights. Toasted malty hop and cherry aroma with a flavor to match. Definitely not a fan of this pairing - very much a 50/50 stout/cherry split.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2007 I just didnít like this beer as much as most others appear to have liked it. It was just too much cherry-- but maybe Iím not a big fruit beer fan. If you like cherry-- the cherries are definitely promiinent in this flavor profile.

I was disappointed here. A slightly cherry aroma, but the taste was weighed down with a full body lacking in hops or cherry flavor. Not bad, but NG usually does better with their unplugged series.

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.
