Bottle. Pours a clear light brown with a medium tan head. Sweet cherry aroma with a bit of chocolate. Chocolate comes out first in the flavor, followed by a cherry sweetness and a nutty finish. Not subtle on the sweetness, like a chocolate covered cherry. Still drinkable though.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7634) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy brown color with a touch of red and a medium sized tan head. The aroma was cherry, cocoa and sugar. The flavor was cherry, cocoa and sugar though a bit artifical tasting the beer tasted like those chocolate cherry candies that come out every Christmas. Long finish. Odd.

Ernest (7629) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is muddy light brown. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, caramel), with a light note of artificial grape, hint of dish rag. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. O’Fallon sure makes some gross novelty beers. First that damned peppermint holiday thing, now this. Smells like grape soda pop spilled into a porter with some kind of mustiness in the background...cheap, not decadent. Watery.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottled. Poured amber with a short, swirly off-white head. The aroma was chocolate-covered cherries right out of the box.. I loved those things growing up, and this nose nailed it. The flavor found similar stuff, but without the depth and decadence of the candies.. chocolate wheat, vanilla, and a touch of burnt toast the core, with essence of black cherry laced throughout.. dry and grainy on the finish, with some decent chocolate-covered cherries going on. Light-medium bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. a hair too sweet, but otherwise a decent feel to it.. overall I have to say I enjoyed it.

Strykzone (7257) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Copper hued and hazy. This smells like chocolate covered cherries. A one trick pony but it is exactly what the name implies.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Pours a dark orange copper with a thin fizzy off-white head. Aroma has a nice milk chocolatey character and a touch of cherry-like tartness. Body is somewhat thin and over-carbonated but has decent flavor and sort of does taste like a chocolate covered cherry as they advertised. Cherry flavor could be more pronounced, but it has a nice wheaty sweetness. Yeah, it’s a little weird that it’s a chocolate beer that isn’t a stout or porter, but I don’t think it’s as bad as the ratings suggest on here. Thanks to Dough77 for the bottle!

Muddy amber color/ fleeting tan head. Big chocolatemilk, cherry syrup aromas. frothy light mouthfeel. Decent milk chocolate, cherry bon bon flavors. dessert brew.

Sounds interesting on paper but not in practice. One of the worst beers I’ve had, mainly because its exactly what the name says it is and I do not like chocholate covered cherries.

Braudog (6632) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2006
From the bottle: Rusty red-orange with an airy top and a chocolate candy aroma. As advertised, this delivers on the chocolate-covered cherry character. Interesting ... but not necessarily what I want in a beer.
