Reddish very dark brown with a disappearing white head. Aroma dominated by cherry (acid-y) and oak which has notes of vanilla and coconut. Sweet with fruity acid and a long lasting dryness. Very interesting experiment, but the coconut turned me off.

The pour is almost black with a slightly red tint to it. Smell is very interesting. Fruity, an sour, I think... THe taste is much of the same, sour fruits. A lot like wine or a winecooler :o Ok drinkable, if you like this style.

Pours a dark cherry brown with very little head, just a bit of tan lacing. Aroma is cherry, caramel/brown sugar and it overtakes my nose. Flavor is malty body with rich cherry flavor. It reminds me of a lund’s cherry cough drop. Very delicious and rich. I would have this as a dessert.

Bought this beer at Wholefoods in Madison, WI. Pours a dark red with a small white head. The aroma of cherries hits your nose instantly. Flavor is very sweet of cherries and tart. Not as creamy as some stouts I’ve head.

Bottle. Lugged back from wisconsin by kylie. Pours a clear dark ruby red with a small light tan head. A boatload of cherries in the aroma. Not much stout character to speak of. It’s hard to get cherry cough drops or some other type of medicine out of your head upon the initial sniff. Seems like a stout version of belgian red. Flavor is better than the aroma. Chocolate covered cherries. But has an annoying cherry cola like component to it which I was not digging. Mouthfeel has that same lush, smooth, coat-your mouth texture that begian red has, though to a slightly lesser extent. Sticky mouthfeel. Well carbonated. A bit too sweet for my liking, but i can see this being a great dessert beer- especially if paired with some cherry pie and ice cream. Some highs and lows with this beer. Unique beer that resembles more of a cherry cola, fruit juice hybrid than a beer. Decent, but not exactly my cup of tea.

12oz Bottle. A somewhat thinner, dark brown pour, reminiscent of a very light roast coffee. Aroma notes consisting of super sweet, candy cherry cough drops (Ludens anyone?). Sweet malty palate, dominated by overwhelming cherries with a slight roasty characteristic. Tartness follows quickly on the finish. Can easily drink one per sitting, but would not sit down with a four pack.

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.
