Pours mahogany-tinged black into a Sam glass. Mocha head crackles and recedes to nothing. Cherry lolipop aromas. Medium bodied with chocolate and cherry lolipop overload front to back. Leaves an odd, bitter aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2013 new rating this year 2013; much better smell. OLD: On tap at 1 for the road but here it was listed as cherry chocolate stout @ 7% so I’m not sure if this is the right place for this rating. Big black pour. Not much aroma but I do detect a hint of fruit or cherry in the background. Initially, this stuff has lots of cherry in there supported by a choco background. Goodly amount of co2 in there and it makes it more pleasant than i was expecting. Chocolate becomes more apparent as the session continues. Almost evolves to a soda kind of testure on the palate. You would never know this is more than 5%, hides the alky very well. Decent overall beer experience.

Sampled on 12/31/2014. This fruit beer pours a dark brown/black color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent lacing and good retention. The aroma is fruity, bready and sweet, hints of cherry, chocolate, and dark fruit. A medium bodied fruit/bock beer. The malts are dark fruity, bready and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Nice balance of fruit, chocolate and malts. A touch sweet but very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with some cherry.

Draft at abraxas. Happy hour. Dark brown, scant head. Aroma has a tangy tartness and no depth. The flavors are fruit tart, like a pop tart filling, and it almost tastes like a brown ale gone sour and the mistake is covered up for my calling it cherry. As it warms some mild nestle qwik type cocoa powder comes out.But anyway, it’s drinkable...

Love the aroma -- smells like chocolate covered cherries -- sweet, cocoa, cherry pop tart, tangy. Good label, Sam longneck. Very dark brown, clear - but you can’t see very far through it. Tastes like chococherries as well, sweet, lots of bittersweet cocoa. Slightly biscuity and roasty in the finish, aftertaste is like the flavor. Walmart.

bottle. Brown with small head. Both the cherry and chocolate are quite prominent within a malty base. Sweet and pleasant. Seems like a great beer to have around a fireplace or campfire.

Pours a muddy brown color. Aromas of cherries, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is a subdued cherry taste, not a big as I expected. Finishes like a cherry tootsie roll pop. Surreal taste, quite remarkable. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. Nearly opaque chocolate with a lasting topping of creamy foam. Pleasant and straightforward aroma of sweet dark cherries and a touch of dark chocolate. Taste opens with sweet and mildly tart cherry and dark berry. Semi-sweet dark chocolate fades in along with a faint trace of woody hop in the long aftertaste. Medium body is smooth and a bit too sweet, but the acidity of the cherries and chocolate provides some much-needed astringency. Definitely a dessert beer. A little less cherry sweetness would have been better.
