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.

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.

bubbleflubber (1833) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2014
"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!"

Dark chocolate, strong hazelnut, and cherry aroma. Black, thin tan head. Chocolate liqueur flavor, alcohol evident. Very creamy. Figs and raisins on the back end. Cherries further back. Nicely done. Uprated twice.

Theydon_Bois (8720) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle at home, 11/06/14, acquired from the bottle shop at the rear of Capones, Norristown PA. Pours black with a good sized tan head that retains well. Nose is roast malt, cherry well evident, chocolate, light metallic notes. Taste comprises milk chocolate, chocolate dipped cherries, light roast, Medium bodied, fine massageing carbonation, sweet vs lactic ring in the close. Solid sweet stout, gets the cherry and chocolate message across to the viewer without being sweet or messy.

kramer (4994) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a ark brown body, almost completely opaque, under a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is rich and chocolaty with just a light hint of cherry. Lots of roast and sweet burnt caramel. The flavor is rather sweet with lots of milk chocolate and cocoa powder. The cherry is pretty well hidden, but emerges a bit late on the finish. The roast works really well and balanced the sweetness a bit and keeps it from becoming too cloying. Medium bodied and a bit clingy with some sticky caramel and residual sugars. Soft gentle fizzy carbonation. Pretty tasty beer, among the better beers I’ve had from these guys thus far.

jrodooo5 (1019) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Very nice black pour w/ a lovely tan head that doesn’t leave much lacing. The aroma is very stout like w/ roasted notes shining through w/ maybe a hint of cherry. The taste has much more cherry flavor than the aroma. It’s like a fruit stout but it works pretty well! It has very good texture & mouthfeel. Well done!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle:   Black, cola hued edges, thin frothy beige head, little lacing.   Soft roasted malts, a touch of pasture, not so much in the cherry and chocolate.   Perhaps just a smidge of Dark Chocolate.   Smooth, but not all that rich.   Does pick up some sweetness towards the back.   Middle of the road, but faitly solid.   Thanks Brad!
