Keg @ APN 2017. Deep reddish pour with a small head. Nose of toffee cheese cake. Flavor has some earthy coffee. Very sweet and fat. Lactose and caramel abounds. Full body. Somewhat nutty. Oily. deyholla (12582) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Growler pour at the brewery. Pours near black with a a light brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma is full of sweet cherries and graham cracker with hints of creamy sweet grains and chocolate underlying. Flavor has sweet cherries and cookies/graham cracker throughout with hints of dark choclate and dark grains in the finish. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Had at the 2013 St. Paul Summer Beer Fest, Smells like cheesecake jello, very sweet, taste is some crust and more like butterscotch arminjewell (9721) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Pour on tap at Winterfest 2012, pour is dark brownish red with a nice off white head. Aroma is insanely close to cherry-chocolate cheesecake, with everything from the sweet cherry and milk chocolate notes to the cream cheese (how?), graham cracker, and slight whipped cream notes. Taste is not quite as amazing, but still manages to capture the nice graham cracker and slight sweet sugary cheese, touches of chocolate but mostly cherry, hints of caramel and toffee come through more, finishing pretty sweet.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2012 sampled at Winterfest 2012. Pours brown black with little khaki head that fades to thin collar. Aroma is by far the best part of this brew, rich sweet cheesecake and cherries chocolate. Taste is more malt and roasted chocolate with a dry bitter finish. Palate is medium to full with a slick dry finish. DasBierChef (1081) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Cheesecake.... but in beer form! fantastic aroma, but a mediocre flavor. Definitely worth a shot. badgerben (5372) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Minnesota Winterfest 2012. Black color with a small head. Massive cherry cheesecake aroma. The aroma and flavor both have a sweet, sugariness, with garahm cracker and sweet cherry. LilBeerDoctor (4229) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Growler. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate (like chocolate cake), hint of black cherry. Flavor of chocolate with a roasted/charred finish. There is a hint of cheesecake but you have to search for it. A hint of cherry too. It was ok, but a little disappointing given the name.

Growler. Pours dark brown with out much of a head. Aroma of dry roasted malt, charred wood, and a bit of bittersweet baking chocolate. Light bodied and dry, this beer has some notes of dark cherries in the body with some chocolate, but not much in the department of cheesecake. Wish there was more of that. Kinda thin for cygnus with a roasty finish. Nice infusion, but not my favorite.
