Bottle. An odd beast for sure, on one hand it pretty much is what it claims to be. On the other hand, it doesn’t work. Pours a murky brown color with a small white head. A nose of exactly cherries and chocolates. The flavor is odd; medicinal cherries, dry cocoa and chocolates. OK.

Muddy amber color/ fleeting tan head. Big chocolatemilk, cherry syrup aromas. frothy light mouthfeel. Decent milk chocolate, cherry bon bon flavors. dessert brew.

From the bottle: Rusty red-orange with an airy top and a chocolate candy aroma. As advertised, this delivers on the chocolate-covered cherry character. Interesting ... but not necessarily what I want in a beer.

Well the aroma is mostly akin to a chocolate bar - not the organic free trade shit all the hippies love here in Seattle, but the mass produced chocolate with all the additives and sugars and shit in it combined with light cherry cola notes as well as cherry italian soda syrup. I actually enjoyed the aroma. Pours murky muddy brown soda water, no head or lace, visibly fizzy. Flavors of said chocolate and cherry, but a touch toned down with a soft darker wheat beery essence, but at this point I am digging. This shit is like a chocolate cherry pop. My marketing advice for this product: Market this shit towards middle school and high school kids and chicks - that is your main target market, plus me... And while rating to style, it does what it says it was going to do and that works for me...

Bottle shared by Joey Gymnasium. Pours a black body with a fizzy soda 2 finger head. Light cherry and chocolate, thin and session able a hint of paper but not in a destructive way. Decent.

As advertised, it tastes like a chocolate covered cherry... but I’m not sure I like that in a beer. The aroma is bittersweet chocolate with only a hint of the cherry. Looks nice, a golden brown with reddish highlights and a fizzy off-white head, but that doesn’t make up for the artificial flavors added to this wheat ale.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle: Amber color, light white head. The nose is funky and off with a light wheat and sour corn note, vaguely any fruit or chocolate. The flavor is more into the cherry, with some of the dark extracts. Meh, kinda lame.

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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized off white head that disappears quickly. The aroma has an artificial candy quality: some cherry, more Nestlee Quick chocolate/cocoa. The flavor has some cherry and chocolate to it, but the base beer is too thin and watery. The chocolate is not the rich creamy variety, but more of the bargain bin type. I would like to see more cherry, however I won’t be revisiting this again.
