UPDATED: JUL 2, 2006 Drank this at a recent tasting with Perkeo and chriso420 and it was easily my favorite with the Eisphyre coming in a close second. I must admit I’m a sucker for brett beers, and this is no exception. I did wonder what exactly qualified this as a stout considering the color and body, but no matter. Sour cherries, brett funk, oak, a slight stale quality that reminded me of an old paperback, and a noticeable medicinal taste. Confounding and wonderful at the same time! ninobrown (16) - USA - MAR 19, 2006
Very dark brown with a hint o’ red. Dominated by tart cherry flavor and scent. Probably a bit unbalanced/ lacking in beer characteristics. Quite good, though, and better than many fruit "beers." frisbe60 (14) - Spring Green, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2006
From the bottle bought at the brewery. Appearance is dark with a slight red tint. Head was about 1/2 inch but fell quickly. I don’t taste anything similar to a stout, only cherries. I think it might be their belgian red with darker grains. Stensler (14) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2010
chocolate, brown, black, red, sparkling, tan foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, creamy, fizzy, lively, long finish.
My first Unplugged this year. This is a fantastic beer. It has an almost champagne like quality. Amazing taste and a great finish. Smells and tastes of chocolate and cherries. stevie77 (7) - Belgium, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2012 does not count
Was expecting a stout, didn’t realize it was a fruit beer. It comes across as a milder Wisconsin Belgian red, if I had to choose between the two to drink I’d go with this. Sweet, tart, cherry, thin, bubbly. I know a lot of people who like it but I’m not a fan of the style.

The aroma is overwhelming with fresh cherries and a hint of fresh cut oak. The flavor is primarily of cherries but quickly dissolves into a nice palate of cherries, barley and an almost caramel tinge from the oak. Aftertaste is very smooth with a fading reminder of the, ever so delightful tartness of the fresh Wisconsin Montmorency cherries. DankBrews (6) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2010 does not count
Sweet smelling with a strong cherry smell and a hit of vanilla. Redish Black in color, sparkling with little ot no head. Sweet tasting, with light body, cherry taste, sort of like a cherry pie. Life bodies, thin, fizzy, with a nice strong sweet finish. Very drinkable for a few, a great beer to have one or two, but I could not drink it all night.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Wow, I could not have been more disappointed. I know I am in the minority with this one, but this was a rare drain pour from me. Neither me nor the person I shared with could stomach this one at all. I am a big New Glarus fan and this one missed. Nice cherry nose, but the the taste to me was all cherry medicine. I may be being a bit generous with 8 out of 20 overall, but the nose was pretty good and the appearance was average. brushfireantic (2) - milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2012 does not count
Surprisingly doesn’t seem like a stout taste but bold and fruity. Wish I could find it more! spacehobo6000 (1) - de pere, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2012 does not count
this is just another in a long line of new glarus beers that hit it out the park
