2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours red-brown with an off-white head. Aroma is just like the name, cherry and chocolate. Flavor is less than elegant, showing cherry pie filling and dusted cocoa. Overall body is light to moderate, and finishes slightly cloying.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle - Amber pour. Smells of chocolate and cherries. The sweet flavor is more chocolate and cherries, as advertised, and as others have said the cherry flavor seems artificial though I don’t think it’s too bad. The underlying beer is on the thin side. It’s not bad but I’d like to see a bolder beer to go with the added flavors.

Draft at brewery. Oh. My. God. One of the worst, artificial, waste of time beer s I have ever had. Just the most disgusting cherry flavor with a weird artificial chocolate plastic flavor. Face slap.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Aroma of cherries and chocolate. Pours a nice deep, clear brown color, with a tiny bit of head. Tastes like a chocolate cherry.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a hazy amber with a medium sized white head. The aroma is as advertised, chocolate and cherries. The taste is a nice blend of chocolate and cherries. A real tasty beer

One of the worst "beers" I’ve ever had. If someone made a chocolate soda, this is probably what it would taste like. Very fizzy. Neither the chocolate or the cherry flavors were appealing at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber beer with a very short beige head. Big aroma of cherries and chocolate. This does taste like a cherry cordial, and it avoids the worst of the artificial chemical fruit tastes that can really turn me off on a fruit beer. The body is a bit thin, but the flavors are spot on if you are looking for a cherry cordial beer.

Aroma was delicious cherry and chocolate. Body was a bit thin, as was the brown color. No hop bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish amber. Half finger beige head. Some lacing
Aroma is chocolate, cherry... but not chocolate covered cherry. Yes, it smells good. Yes, it smells inviting.
Taste is more chocolate and less cherry. I’m guessing the cherry is more on the nose. No hops, no grains, nothing else. I can’t tell if it’s artificial, or not artificial. Not much to say about this.
Mouthfeel is smooth and rich. It’s not bitter at all. It’s sweet.
Overall, it’s okay. I’m disappointed. If they pulled this off properly, it could be the end of beer reviews. We would never need to drink another beer ever again, because you would have perfect perfection. But sadly, they failed. It’s okay. It may be a little chemical artificial, but it’s hard to say. Perhaps if you had a Queen Anne’s chocolate covered cherry and you dropped one in, or popped some whilst drinking, it might be okay. Otherwise, it’s worth a try, just to say you did. But you may wish you hadn’t.
