harrisoni (16863) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Cask gravity at Kent & East Sussex Railway BF 2016. Dark brown red mahogany colour lasting beige head. Cherry chocolate aroma. Bit thin in the mouth. Some dark cherry flavour. Hmm. Not sweet but the fruit is a little artificial maybe not totally integrated. Not great.

Cask at Stockbridge Tap. Pours deep brown. Lovely creamy tan head. Big cherry and malts aroma. Pretty full on cherry flavours. Strangely I quite like this though. Works well with the malty backbone. Creamy and pudding like, though not that sweet. Certainly a novelty beer and a bit weird. That said, I’m enjoying it.

jjsint (2127) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2016
Cask at the Cambridge Blue. Reddish brown, clear, really flat. Cherry aroma with a hint of chocolate malt. A little bit of plastic. Sweet taste with a surprisingly astringent artificial finish. Watery body. Meh.

amhart88 (92) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2016
Tastes almost exactly like blackforest gateaux - cherries, dark chocolate. A bit synthetic tasting. Cloying sweetness quickly gives way to a strange unmalty bitterness. Bizarre

SarkyNorthener (3898) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Cask@pretty bricks, Walsall. Ruby brown beer with small head. Aroma of cherry and malts. Taste is cherry squash, malts and some caramel. Decent.

Scopey (11790) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Cask at the Claret. It pours clear deep brown with a small, bubbly beige head. The nose is soft, sweet cherry, perfumed, cherry drops, slightly artificial and tangy boiled sweets. The taste is bitter, earthy, mild astringency, cherry skin, cherry drops, woody, light spice, slightly medicinal notes. Finish is earthy and dry. Medium body and soft carbonation. Quite a disconnect between aroma and taste. The former sweet, the latter bitter. Better than expected, but not overly drinkable.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2015
Cask at Ye Olde Bull & Bush, Stoke. Pours black red brown with a light tan head. Sweet cherry, smooth porter, creamy, did I say smooth. Cherry a tad artificial sweet but good nonetheless.

jmgreenuk (7093) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 31, 2015
Gravity cask at the Birmingham CAMRA Beer Festival 2015. Poured a clear dark brown with a bubbly round off white head. The aroma is big cherry, light sweet roasted malt. The flavour is light sour with some sweet malt, crisp cherry yeast notes on the palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Drawn from the barrel at the Sir John as one of their festival specials. A seasonal ale that pour reddish brown with very little head if any. Vanilla and almond overpower cherry in the scent. But they are there in the taste which is very sweet initially with thankfully a bitter background. A watery palate. Personally this is the runt of the litter that spawned the vanilla stout. I simply cannot imagine an evening drinking this. But that is what seasonal special beer is for. To stretch rather than affirm the taste buds.

FatPhil (13067) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 7, 2015
Cask (Tram Depot, Cambridge)
Dark mahogany, maybe even dark cherry, colour. Very interesting aroma - a nice dark beer, and cherry is subtle. Full in the mouth, some of which is just from sweetness, but it’s not as sweet as I would have expected - more cherry stones than cherry. Bitterness on the roof of the mouth in particular is quite lingering. This is a nice twist and is well executed. Finish is very dry, but that’s balanced by the nice sweet body. That makes it moreish.
