2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. No apparent code date. Appearance: light brown, clear, with little off white foam head.
Aroma: Intense bing cherry. Hard do discern any other aroma.
Taste: Light toasted, chocolate malt with sweet cherry flavor on the backside. Malt flavor is light and one dimensional.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, quite thin, with low carbonation.
Finish: bing cherry flavor lingers well more than any malt character.
Overall: This beer tastes as advertised. Malt charter is subdued, and body really thin, which lets the cherry flavoring overpower. With more malt character and body this could be a good beer. Would like to also see more of a true tart cherry flavor as opposed to the sweet flavoring in this beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz twist off bottle, part of the World Market winter 9 bottle mix pack, courtesy of my in-laws. The pour is light haze copper brown with a 1/2 inch off white head that falls fast. The aroma is dusty sweet cocoa and cherry fruit sweet. The cherry fruit is almost a cherry candy. The taste is dull caramel malt along with the cocoa powder and cherry sweet. Cherry is a bit unnatural though not unclean tasting. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and the sweet cherry cocoa finish. Overall, this beer is as advertised.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of chocolate cherry. Clear amber brown with a beige rim head, no lace. There is only a little malt to begin this, followed by Bing cherry and dark chocolate, then a bit of bitter as it moves through a short finish. It does everything it advertises, but somehow, for me, it doesn’t work. Fair, nothing more.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Fuck me running. This beer is awful. It uses flavor extracts to supposedly taste like a chocolate covered cherry but instead tastes and smell identically to a blue raspberry Tootsie Pop. It is super artificial, thin and weird. It smells more like chocolate than chocolate does and that’s not really a good thing. This is probably one of the worst non-spoiled, non-Lithuanian novelty beers I have ever had.

Surprisingly nice dark pour and thick whip cream head. Nice note of a chocolate covered cherry right after the first bite.....then it tastes like a tootsie roll. Chemicals and artificial flavors.

This is an odd beer... I’m a big fan of the cordial cherry, and this comes off like a liquid version. If that was the goal, OFallon pulled off a miracle, with the tastes flowing in the correct order and pulling off a really nice copy. It’s an interesting choice just to taste the effort that went into making a beer replicate a candy experience.
