Bottle thanks to someone but I forgot. Poured a very dark red with opaque edges and an off-white head that laces slightly. Aroma is full of cherries both sweet and tart with a hint of oak. Flavor is similar with sweet cherries becoming more tart and quite smooth. I really didn’t pick up much of any stout resemblance but it was an enjoyable as a fruit beer. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2010
12 oz bottle @Tampa Wkly Gathering @BT-pours a dissipating tan head and deep red/mahogany color. Aroma is spicy cherry, some medium malt. Taste is spicy cherry pie, secondary medium malt, wood. Doesn’t seem to get the stout over the cherry. madsberg (11799) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2006

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2011 Bottle... DLD06... Dark, clear, caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, well-tanned head. The nose is of chocolate and black cherries. When I take a sip, I’m confused... is this a stout brewed with cherries or is it a chocolately, dark, fruit beer? Light cocoa and big cherries in the flavor. Tart, but way too sweet at the same time. Medium to full-bodied and ultra silky with fizzy carbonation. Finishes sweet and tart. Odd bird, this one. But not bad at all... just dissonant and not really my thing.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of my secret santa, thanks. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a small, fine beige head that collapses to a ring around the glass. The aroma is sour cherries with some chocolate, vanilla, and port. The flavor is an explosion of sour cherries with enough other sensations that the combination works well. Chocolate, vanilla, wood, some acidity. This is a very good beer. It certainly belongs in the fruit beer category and not with the stouts. Medium bodied and very easy to drink.

Big thanks to Ohio Dad for this one. The pour was a great ruby blackish color tan head. It poured like a dark merlot. The aroma was hugely krieky, with roasty dark malt, berries, merlot, and some hops and slight florals. The taste was very tart and krieky, with a solid roasty malt backbone, and even raspberries and cacao in the finish. Velvety, complex palate. Wonderful, as I would expect from thsi world class brewer. Fin (11070) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2008
Tasting with Casey, Traci, Craig, Stella and Loz 27-09-08 this bottle brought along by Casey Pours dark brown with light beige head. Big fruity vanilla nose, some mushroom also on nose. Loz got copper coin taste in mouth, I know exactly what she meant. Lovely quirky tang to this. Whilst I can’t describe what it is exactly I will say that New Glarus beers or the ones from this series of Unplugged that Casey has shared with me have a real signature, thumbprint to the taste, just wish I could describe it accurately. Quite a stunner. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Bottle from guyinchicago. What a unique beer. Pours a reddish brown color with a very small head. Cherry candy on the nose with light hints of caramel and chocolate. Flavor is sweet chocolate covered cherries, with more cherry flavor than chocolate. Slight tartness creeps in. Very cool beer. phaleslu (10913) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2010
12 oz. bottle as an extra via trade with LtDan- thanks again, Dan! I also picked up a couple of these on a trip to the brewery last weekend. Pours a dark, clear ruby-brown color with a small beige head that leaves a ring on the inner edge of the glass. Aroma of cherries, caramel, milk chocolate, syrup, cream, and wood. Flavor of cherries, caramel, wood, earth, syrup, butter, and mineral notes. A lot of cherries all the way through on this one. Medium-bodied, with minimal carbonation and a syrupy mouthfeel. Sticky, dry finish. Very sweet. Unusual beer, and New Glarus knows how to do fruit beers. Definitely cool and worth trying.
