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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 11/18/2013. Pours slightly hazy ruby brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, cherry, cherry skin, fudge, caramel, wheat, brown bread, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance of chocolate fudge and cherry notes with moderate malt presence; and good strength. Smells like a tootsie roll. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, fudge, cherry, cherry skin, caramel, brown bread, wheat, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, cherry, brown bread, wheat, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Okay flavor balance with moderate chocolate and cherry flavors and prominent wheat/bread malt; with decent robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is okay. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an okay flavored wheat beer. Aromas were quite nice, but flavors did not have much robustness of the chocolate/cherry notes. Kind of an odd beer at first, but I had no problem finishing it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells like a chocolate covered cherry. Tastes like Cherry Coke, some real cherry flavor, then a chocolate covered cherry. Taste lingers a bit afterward as well. I see some are really slamming this, but I didn’t think this was so bad, and I’m generally not much of a fan of O’Fallon at all. The beer does what it sets out to do. Pretty refreshing, different, and easy to drink. Definitely liked this more than I expected.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Flavor of beer is almost entirely absent. Tastes like a liquid inexpensive chocolate covered cherry. Would make a good soda but a bit sweet for beer.

Very cherry, and a very fake cherry. Everything about this is fake. Chocolate covered cherry flavor.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is just like a candy chocolate cherry candy. mouthfeel is a bit thin and carbonated. Appearance is a thin fading head. For the abv I actually enjoy this beer. light chocolate cherry taste, overall enjoyable for a fruit beer, but i’m sure this has to be artificial flavors... if not its amazing.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Faux chocolate aroma with a little bit of cherry, resembles the smell of a tootsie roll. Pours a brownish amber with a medium, tan head and decent lacing. Tastes very much like a tootsie roll with a bit of cherry flavoring, but without much depth of flavor. Finishes smoothly but leaves the unappealing tootsie roll flavor on the palate. A rare misfire from ofallon.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. single from 20 West Liquors in Lombard, IL.. Poured to a smaller, festival Czech-pils type glass showing a clear, brownish amber color, with fair persistence to the soft white, foamy head, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The aroma was a dessert-like nose of sweetness, chocolate & candied cherry. The treat faded in the flavor, which also included low hop bitterness, decent carbonation that was a little seltzery, all in a light body. Expressive, Brachs-like nose, followed by okay sessionability.

If only the flavor wasn’t quite so artificial. I enjoyed it overall and is definitely superior to Horny Goat Cherry Chocolate Stout.
