3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. single from 20 West Liquors in Lombard, IL.. Poured to a smaller, festival Czech-pils type glass showing a clear, brownish amber color, with fair persistence to the soft white, foamy head, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The aroma was a dessert-like nose of sweetness, chocolate & candied cherry. The treat faded in the flavor, which also included low hop bitterness, decent carbonation that was a little seltzery, all in a light body. Expressive, Brachs-like nose, followed by okay sessionability.

If only the flavor wasn’t quite so artificial. I enjoyed it overall and is definitely superior to Horny Goat Cherry Chocolate Stout.

This beer is exactly what it says it is. The cherry and chocolate are powerful. The flavoring is a bit artificial tasting though.

Trolololololololololololololololo. Tastes and smells exactly like a cherry tootsie pop.

I did not drink this one recently, but this one was memorably bad so I came to spite rate it. I was hoping it would be a chocolate stout with a hint of cherry. Instead, it tastes like someone dissolved a couple cherry Tootsie Pops in an inferior stout. I am a man who likes his beer, but I drank half of one, opened another the next day to try again and show someone else how nasty it was, and then poured 4 down the drain.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear, dark amber with a good sized, light tan head.
Aroma is poured chocolate, cherry...
Taste is huge, melted chocolate chip and cherries.
Really nothing to add to the description..
It is exactly what it says it is.
Tasty, but not beery.

Bottle tasted at Oxford Tasting Nov 2012. Poured copper with minimal head. Aroma as advertised on the bottle. Chocolate and cherry weirdly close to bad cordials, not helped by being thin.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2015 Bottle. Reddish brown in color. Aroma is chocolate and cherry. Taste is chocolate and cherry. Taste a lot like Mike’s Chocolate Cherry alco-pop.

Bottle. Pours nice and smells great. the cherry is defiantly the dominant flavour on the tongue but has a pleasantly rich chocolate finish. Not bad all in all but i probably wouldn’t buy a whole six pack.
