2003 bottle, drunk in november 04. like clark mentions, looks like cherry cola. smells like tart cherries and chocolate truffles--more balanced, less one-dimensional than bell’s cherry stout. lightly stale and astringent finish, but overall not too bad.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2004 Dark chestnut brown, black with plenty of bubbles. Looks like cherry cola. Decent off white head. Smells like tart cherries and has an interesting sour smell on the nose. Right away the tart cherries come out. I am glad that it is not too sweet, I am not glad that there is very little else here other than tart cherries. Finishes with a dry nothingness that is reminiscent of club soda. I think they were so concerned with not making a cloying cherry beer, that they forgot to also make it something other than not cloying. Way too carbonated for a stout.

Sampled this at the Polar Beer Fest. I knew from the start this was a tough one. It has an off smell that is reminiscent of vinegar. Taste is very acidic, with the tartness seeming to come from anything but cherries. There is no balance at all to this. Not a great effort.

(Draft)Great, Great, Great. This is one of two winter seasonals that they have on tap. The beer has a nice this head, subtle cherry nose with a slight tart cherry finish. Not as overpowering as many other fruit beers and the brewer said it will get better with time. If you are near Detroit, you have to drive over to try it before it is gone.
