I did not drink this one recently, but this one was memorably bad so I came to spite rate it. I was hoping it would be a chocolate stout with a hint of cherry. Instead, it tastes like someone dissolved a couple cherry Tootsie Pops in an inferior stout. I am a man who likes his beer, but I drank half of one, opened another the next day to try again and show someone else how nasty it was, and then poured 4 down the drain.

bottle. Deep brown with small head. Rich chocolate malt with some artificial seeming cherry flavor. Sweet and slightly cloying, but not bad.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
