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

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

Bottle at home. Pours brown with two fingers of off white head. Aroma is cherries and some chocolate. Flavor follows with lots of cherries. Very sweet. Not pleasant at all. Gross. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. No apparent code date. Appearance: light brown, clear, with little off white foam head. Aroma: Intense bing cherry. Hard do discern any other aroma. Taste: Light toasted, chocolate malt with sweet cherry flavor on the backside. Malt flavor is light and one dimensional. Mouthfeel: Light bodied, quite thin, with low carbonation. Finish: bing cherry flavor lingers well more than any malt character. Overall: This beer tastes as advertised. Malt charter is subdued, and body really thin, which lets the cherry flavoring overpower. With more malt character and body this could be a good beer. Would like to also see more of a true tart cherry flavor as opposed to the sweet flavoring in this beer.

Bottle sample at Top of the Hops Biloxi. Hazy amber color, tan head. Aroma of chocolate covered cherry candy. Taste of artificial cherry and chocolate candy.

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.
