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.

Tap @ TacoMac, John’s Creek. 11oz pour. Black, thin tan head, legs. Tastes like black cherry cola with a hint of burnt malt. Wild cherry lifesaver smell. An ok session.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. The smell is one of the worst things I have ever put near my nose, and I used to work with some nasty shit in a chemistry lab. The smell is sickeningly sweet and SUPER cherry, like cough syrup. And not good cough syrup. The chocolate comes through underneath in the taste, but the cherries are the first thing you get. Not really a fan of this one. Oy.

Bottle. Pours a dark reddish color with rosy highlights. Beige head. Aroma is lots of cherry notes, and some roasted malts. Flavor is also lots of cherry mixed with some sweeter chocolatey notes. Wow this is actually pretty good. Well balanced.

12oz bottle in Seattle. Dark black-brown, foam. As you’d expect, cherry and chocolate, some coffee roast malts. Big sweet cherry pit, red fruit over dark malt. Sweet cherry candy, tootsie roll. Creamy, good body. Tasty for what it is, which is an over sweet fruity novelty.

Draft at mellow mushroom. Pours black with a thin khaki head though this might not be accurate since the beer was served in a refrigerated glass. Definite cherry notes on the nose but they’re more of the sticky sweet variety. Not getting much chocolate on the tongue but definitely more sweet cherry. Finishes clean. Not bad but hoping this was going to be better.

Tap at rrbf. Pours muddy brown with small cream colored head. Nose is sweet cocoa, light cherry flesh and stem, a bit of rum. This tastes very similar to those chocolate cherry cordial candies and I was kinda surprised how much I liked it. Maybe it’s because I had the Chocolate squirrel immediately before.
