3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is chocolate and cherries, a lot of chocolate and cherries. A medium bodied ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Lots of chocolate and cherry flavors as well as a touch of vanilla. It’s very much like drinking a chocolate covered cherry. Yet there is some beer flavor here as well, but in some strange kind of way I like it. I mean if you buy a Cherry chocolate ale, you are going to expect it to taste a certain way and it doesn’t disappoint. It tastes and smells like a chocolate covered cherry candy. I enjoyed the aroma a lot more than the taste. I will give the brewers credit; I think they accomplished what they set out to do. I like this beer, but would not want to drink it more than a couple of time a year. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet and cherry.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Much light in color than I was expecting. A cloudy umber color with a diminished beige head. Certainly smells like a chocolate covered cherry to me. Not that I am a big fan of them, but I can appreciate the scent. There does seem to be a touch of mold that distracts slightly. Light sweet malt flavor has some presence throughout the quaff. Really not that bad. The chocolate and cherry is there, but it does seem somewhat un-natural. Of course, so does a chocolate covered cherry. Have not really wanted to try this,but I did find a single. Not a great big fan of the brew, but if you like chocolate covered cherries, you certainly should enjoy this one.
