Unusual beer I didnt think I would like. However its pretty tastey, not too heavy. Dark almost black color, great aroma and just overall good flavor beer.

Oh so good. This could easily become one of my new favorite Winter Seasonal beers.

12oz bottle. Medium bodied. Chocolate forward, some chocolate syrup tones. Deep brown black body. Thin, fading beige head. Overly sweet and doubling down on artificiality, this is a pretty unacceptable Bock. Maraschino cherry aroma. Easy drinking, smooth enough. The thing I dislike the most about this beer is that it calls itself a Bock.

Bottled. Poured clear, deep reddish-brown with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter cherries and cocoa over darker chocolates and a little molasses.. really smelled like chocolate-covered cherries. The flavor found sweeter cocoa and cherries at the core with dry, toasted chocolates and lightly-tart cherry skins around.. finished with more chocolate-covered cherries. Medium-bodied with creamy-ish carbonation on the palate.. sweeter than I wanted, but it felt good.

This is a cherry cordial candy in liquid form. Chocolate, cherry, a touch of bitter at the end. If you think their cherry wheat tastes like cough syrup you probably won't like this. I kind of like it. It tastes like fake cherries, but I dont even care.

Bottle that a friend was happy to offload on to me. Near black with no head and plenty of fizz. Sweet and quite heavy with plenty of black cherry and milk chocolate, before a relatively gentle finish. Not a session beer by any means, but ok as a one-off.

Came in Holiday mix pack. Pours black with tan head. Aroma of cherry cordial. Dark chocolate flavor then cherry flavor. I didn’t expect to like this but I was surprised and really liked. This is a unique brew.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle. Great aroma of cocoa and cherry. Stout black with slight head. To quote the Kinks - ’tastes just like cherry cola’. But also has chocolate malt notes. Feels too much like soda too. It is tasty, and that saves this from being a mess.

12oz bottle thanks to jcwatts, thanks John. Poured a medium density dark black body under a small to average creamy beige head. Aroma starts off as cherry soda and then dusty chocolate picks up, toast, cherry juice. Medium body that is creamy with stronger carbonation. Flavor of chocolate, cherry juice, well done toast, grains, cereal, dry chocolate cake. Interesting beer.
