Pours chestnut brown with slight red highlights. Small head and little lacing. Smells like a cherry cordial, fake cherry flavor and waxy chocolate with some graininess. Taste is slightly tart at first then cocoa and faint fake cherry with a weird, grainy finish. Thin mouthfeel and over carbonated to the extent that it is prickly on the tongue. Flavors do not mesh well and taste artificial. Would not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle. weird one. clear amber with a small cream colored head. impressive ripe black cherry aroma with chocolate. smells like a chocolate cherry coke. flavor is really like a cherry coke with chocolate and caramel. very soda-like. its light and refreshing and easy to drink. i’m pretty sure there’s no alcohol in here. milk duds with black cherries. so odd, artificial, non-beer-like, but easy to drink, enticing, unique, crazy and just plain old good. awesome.

Pours with 1/2in head when straight into an Ale glass. Good aroma of cherry and chocolate, but not over-powering. Looks like a red ale. Head started to disappear after 5 minutes, almost gone after 10. Seems to taste better as it warms, never seems too hoppy nor too sweet; good balance. Mouth feel is thin, low fizz, maybe a hint of oiliness. Barely taste the cherries. Slight bitter finish as a result of the chocolate flavor.Still, quite refreshing for a winter beer and is almost light enough for year round drinking.

It smells like a chocolate covered cherry, and the chocolate taste prevails over the cherry (which leaves much to be desired). The color is a clear golden amber color with a frothy, white head. It hits the tongue slickly with a fizzy carbonation and finishes suddenly.

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent copperish-brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells and tastes solid too; cherries and chocolate. Good on the palate. I couldn’t have more than one, but it’s nice, and better that it’s score suggests.

Shared from a 12oz brown bottle into a tulip. It poured a clear medium brown color with weak tan foam. Aroma was just like liquor-soaked cherries and chocolate, or rather, as Drew pointed out: Tootsie Rolls to be precise. Flavor was the same. Not very beer-like but it was exactly what it claimed: a cherry and chocolate flavored malt beverage.Thin, light body and carbonation, strange sweet aftertaste. A total candy-beer, fur-fru for sure, but I’m gonna go on a limb here and say it worked.

12 oz bottle from Duke’s bar and restaurant in Homestead, PA. Very pleasant nose and aromas and a true clone of a chocolate covered cherry. Not everyone at my table liked it but I found it tasty and unique enough to probably order again.

Bottled. Poured amber with a short, swirly off-white head. The aroma was chocolate-covered cherries right out of the box.. I loved those things growing up, and this nose nailed it. The flavor found similar stuff, but without the depth and decadence of the candies.. chocolate wheat, vanilla, and a touch of burnt toast the core, with essence of black cherry laced throughout.. dry and grainy on the finish, with some decent chocolate-covered cherries going on. Light-medium bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. a hair too sweet, but otherwise a decent feel to it.. overall I have to say I enjoyed it.
