Bottle. Pours a reddish brown color with white head. Chocolate covered cherry aroma and flavor. Not enjoyable to me.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Aroma of cherries and chocolate. Pours a nice deep, clear brown color, with a tiny bit of head. Tastes like a chocolate cherry.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a hazy amber with a medium sized white head. The aroma is as advertised, chocolate and cherries. The taste is a nice blend of chocolate and cherries. A real tasty beer

One of the worst "beers" I’ve ever had. If someone made a chocolate soda, this is probably what it would taste like. Very fizzy. Neither the chocolate or the cherry flavors were appealing at all.

Amber beer with a very short beige head. Big aroma of cherries and chocolate. This does taste like a cherry cordial, and it avoids the worst of the artificial chemical fruit tastes that can really turn me off on a fruit beer. The body is a bit thin, but the flavors are spot on if you are looking for a cherry cordial beer.

Aroma was delicious cherry and chocolate. Body was a bit thin, as was the brown color. No hop bitterness.

Pours a reddish amber. Half finger beige head. Some lacing

Aroma is chocolate, cherry... but not chocolate covered cherry. Yes, it smells good. Yes, it smells inviting.

Taste is more chocolate and less cherry. I’m guessing the cherry is more on the nose. No hops, no grains, nothing else. I can’t tell if it’s artificial, or not artificial. Not much to say about this.

Mouthfeel is smooth and rich. It’s not bitter at all. It’s sweet.

Overall, it’s okay. I’m disappointed. If they pulled this off properly, it could be the end of beer reviews. We would never need to drink another beer ever again, because you would have perfect perfection. But sadly, they failed. It’s okay. It may be a little chemical artificial, but it’s hard to say. Perhaps if you had a Queen Anne’s chocolate covered cherry and you dropped one in, or popped some whilst drinking, it might be okay. Otherwise, it’s worth a try, just to say you did. But you may wish you hadn’t.

Dark orange white head at the taproom. Heavy cherry and cocoa aroma, taste is the same. Not much more to say

Austin_Ripper (66) - Iowa, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Pours a dark brown with a tiny white head. Smells chocolatey with tons of fake cherry smell. Taste is chocolate followed up with a slightly fake cherry flavor, which is surprising, considering the smell. The beer doesn’t lie about what it is, but to me it’s just a novelty beer, like most fruit beers. Worth the buy out of curiosity.

Bottle. Pours a deep copper with a bubbly tan head that dissipates quickly. Smells like bad-quality chocolate -- like something used in a chocolate fountain at a high school birthday party. Also, cherry syrup and light floral hops with a hint of something metallic. Bleh. A sweet beginning tastes of grocery store maraschino cherries, with notes of stale cocoa on the finish, leaving a somewhat unpleasant sourness on the tongue. Heavy peppery carbonation assaults the mouth and continues down the throat. Everything about this beer tastes artificial and manufactured, and I could find few redeeming qualities. I’ll be sticking with Queen Anne Cordials for my chocolate-covered cherry needs.

Bottle; poured a reddish tinted dark brown. Aroma was very strong. Sweet cherries, like the kind in drinks. Maybe some caramel and chocolate. Flavor was more mild, with brief chocolate giving way to cherries. Maybe a touch too much like medicine, but not bad
