coffee and sweet cherry and dark fruit aroma pleasant enough..dark brown/black liquid no light comes thru..let me catch up with this taste..creamy café mocha with chocolate cherries really unusual and being a cherry fan I like it..leaves a lingering pleasant cherry/malt aftertaste smooth creamy mouthfeel overall very pleasantly surprised a drinkable sweet cherry flavored stout that tastes good

Pretty interesting. Has an odd almost perfumy aroma. Pours cloudy dark brown with OK head and lacing. Some light cherry and decent roast. Light bitter finish. Thick consistency with an almost resiny feel. Tap at glens garden market.

Dark pour from bottle. Not sure if keeping it opened for a few minutes first created a lack of even a lick of head or lace but this just looks like oil. Smell is vanilla, cocoa, cherries, oat or maybe just earth. Flavor rather the same. I think there is some bitterness to it but it’s so overpowered by the sweet and malt.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, definitely cherries and some coffee notes. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate and cherry notes, also some vanilla notes in there too. Good beer; tasty and enjoyable.

Bottle from Dad as a gift. Thanks dad! Pours dark brown to black heading into the glass with a big creamy khaki brown head. Aroma of lactose, chocolate, light coffe grinds, hint of roast, don’t get much cherries. Flavor is chocolate and lactose, light roast, caramel, and some additional sweetness that I assume is some cherry, but doesn’t come across as such. Medium bodied with medium plus carbonation for the style. Pretty easy drinking and pleasant. Actually significantly better than I had expected. Worth a drink.

Notes from Pike, Reading, PA, Oct 26. Did not know what to expect when I got this bottle, with the half-naked cowgirl cartoon on it. Cherry chocolate milk stout is ambitious but I’m going to say they pulled it off. Obviously very sweet, one is enough, but it worked.

Faint chocolate aroma, opaque black with minimal head and carbonation. Medium sweet creamy cherry, followed by nice lingering chocolate finish.

Pours deep brown into a shaker. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to pool surface. Chocolate milk aromas. Dry with sweet mocha and caramel upfront turning to mild cherry before the lasting bitter hot chocolate finish.

"Kutztown Kutztown...... Geeeeezz that's nice!!!" (those from the area over 40 will get it). And this is incredibly nice. Pours an almost opaque black with the deepest of mahogany fringes; a nice tan head that leaves light suds lacing. The nose is of deep chocolate and lightly toasted malt. Flavors delve wonderfully into the sweet lactose milk sugars, exposing dark chocolate, light roasts, luscious milk chocolate, and finishing with a chocolate-covered cherry and perfectly balancing bittering hop. Never cloying, the carbonation is soft and the mouthfeel is velvety, silky smooth. Awesome, awesome impy milk stout. "Geeeeeezz that's nice!"
