Cask at the Cask, Pimlico, 16/10/13. Mid black with a good sized tan head. Nose is roast malts, dark toffee, fruity twang, light cocoa. Taste comprises berry fruti, light roast, earthy cocoa. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, light roasty tones at the curtain call. Looks and feels good, doesn’t hold much depth and no real discerning cherry flavours. Drinkable enough though.

Alengrin (3368) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2015
Cherry stouts were not uncommon in the old days, this is my first so curious to taste this. Deep beige, creamy, lacing head over an almost black beer. Aroma of coffee grounds, cherries and other stonefruit but not dominating, white pepper, some iron, dried leaves, tea. Nutty taste in which the cherries add a very subtle sweetness - but nothing in the neighborhood of sour cherry beers; bit metallic, bit thin, gentle roasted bitterness in the end, very lightly sourish, bitterness of medium duration. Less rich than expected.

Quite a mild aroma but a really lovely taste. Quite syrupy and leaves a sticky feeling but really quite lovely. Did I mention lovely? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
