COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Cherry Porter is made using local Northern Michigan sweet black cherries, eight different malts, and three varieties of hops. The combination of ingredients provides the deep radiant flavor profile and creates a dark opaque color. The beer leaves a slight purple lace from the fruit puree and finishes with flavors of roasted chocolate and pleasurable black cherry.

Black Cherry Porter is one of the oldest beers in our portfolio. It was brewed for the first time on July 29, 2004 as the 35th batch of beer ever brewed at Short’s.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours an opaque brown with a creamy reddish head. Interesting nose of roastiness combined with some berry sweetness and a whiff of butter. Medium body, very low carbonation, roast, blood and cherries with an annoying tired late mouthfeel. Very subdued hops. Starts nice, but ends pretty blah. 280112

Opaque black beer. Chocolate brown head. Lightly sour - toasted malt nose. Softish dry palate. Sourish dark malt, not bitter, not too dry. This is a light porter. There is a fruity tone but Black Cherry? Pretty subtle. Finishes with more sourish malt and a pinch of chocolate. Drinkable porter.

Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Black color, with generous brown head, compact. Initially the aroma is metallic, blood, then it tunes to some better chocolate and fruits. Good chocolate and caramel flavor, with mild and nice fruit and acidity. Moderate bitterness. Very good when warmer.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle. A very dark brown beer, almost black, and topped by a small, dense, light tan head. The aroma is roasted, with some coffee and dried fruits. Hints of bread crust. The flavor too is mostly roasted, not much cherry shining though, but there’s some berry like notes, which I probably wouldn’t notice if I didn’t know the name of the beer. Full-bodied and very smooth on the palate. Chocolate and coffee finish. A very pleasant one. 120218
