The aroma is sort of like a fruity bitter, with an American take on it. The appearance is dark amber and cloudy. The flavor is malty with a cherry note to it, although its more a general fruit flavor to it than dominated by the cherry. A very solid ale all around, a good addition to the Rogue ales line.

22oz bomber. Murky cherry brown-red..very nice. Thin, creamy, steady, glass-lacing beige head. Some very pleasant cherry in the aroma, maybe a hint of chocolate. Wow. This is a great beer. Great merging of a brown ale with cherries. Deliciously medium bodied. Some tartness up front, but fades into a rich, smooth, creamy, sweet malt finish. Expertly crafted, this is really quite unique and tasty stuff. Highly complex, this is worth seeking out. World Class.

Lock it in! Muddy chocolate body, frothy tan head barely tinted pink. Dry and dark jammy cherry nose, soft pale roast. it all works here. i agree with the comment regarding the pacman yeast. soft dark malts, drawn out fruit, nothing overdone, little graham cracker.

Yep this definitely has its dark cherries which is almost black currant like. Mouth feel is viscous and allows flavours to slowly seep in but does not linger too long. Nice. The one thing that I like most about this beer is that its brewed with a fruit but is not dominated by it. The cherry dances well with all the other high quality ingredients. Very well balanced. Im loving this Chatoe idea.

I like it. Leaned toward an abbey dubbel with a tart cherry twist. Pours a reddish brown with a thin tan head. Instantly find dusty basement and brown bread in the aroma. Not much hop. If you stretch you can find the cherry but done with a very light hand. The flavor is rich with carmel malts, raisins and dark bread all brought to a point of enjoyable sweetness. Then the tartness from the cherries kicks in and dries out your tongue to a squeaky clean, ready for the next sip. Really quite complex. Perfect to contemplate in a brandy snifter after a big meal.

22 oz bottle. First popping open the bottle, my first immediate aromas were dominated from the cherries, with hints of dry hops and sweet leather discernible. The color of the beer is truly one-of-a-kind, a opaque dark amber with dark red, nearly purple hues. The frothy, big bubbled tan head laces well until last sip. This rather light bodied beer has a taste that consists of sourness, tart and malt flavors with notes of pleasantly bitter cherries, rooibos, red table wine and grain. Overall, this is a original brew that stands out; it is very refreshing and thirst quenching while still providing a complex flavor palate.

22oz bomber. Pours cloudy brown with thin light tan head that fades to nothing. Aroma is malty with touches of caramel and also touches of tartness. Flavor is rich and malty with crusty bread, cake, and hints of chocolate. There is a subtle tartness up front that turns to a distinct tart cherry character that blends nicely with the rich malt leading to a moderately sweet finish that feels somewhat dry from the tartness/acidity. Mouthfeel is full bodied and moderately carbonated. Overall, a delicous beer.
