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.

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.

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.

Was expecting a stout, didnít realize it was a fruit beer. It comes across as a milder Wisconsin Belgian red, if I had to choose between the two to drink Iíd go with this. Sweet, tart, cherry, thin, bubbly. I know a lot of people who like it but Iím not a fan of the style.

hopscotch (9214) - 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.

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.
