COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Cherry Porter is made using local Northern Michigan sweet black cherries, eight different malts, and three varieties of hops. The combination of ingredients provides the deep radiant flavor profile and creates a dark opaque color. The beer leaves a slight purple lace from the fruit puree and finishes with flavors of roasted chocolate and pleasurable black cherry.

Black Cherry Porter is one of the oldest beers in our portfolio. It was brewed for the first time on July 29, 2004 as the 35th batch of beer ever brewed at Short’s.

Kullsvart med ravfarget skum og moderat skum. Lukter av god malt og kaffe. Smak av sjokolade, men smaken av bær er framtredende. Middels bitter og moderat karbonering gjør dette til en vinner.

Bottle. Black with short lasting tan head. Aroma of black currant jam, some licorice. Taste has more blackcurrant and licorice with some chocolate. Slightly sweet and a little tangy. Nice but a little weird

Dark brown with a small tan head. Fruity and malty tones. Fruit, malt, bitter and sour. Medium to full body with a biter / sour finish.

12oz bottle, thanks to Umich03jm. Black color. Good brown head. Awesome lace. Pretty great-looking. Nice chocolate flavor, and good big black cherry. Very well blended. Moderate bitter, little sweet (tart) taste. Some roasty malts. Pretty sure I prefer this over Bells’ cherry porter. More my style. I feel like the cherry is bigger and tastier, here. Very special stuff

Draft to pint. Nice variation on the classic porter taste; the black cherry makes it different, but not so much that it is a turn-off. Yes, flavor does come around as it warms up. It was served to me chllled, but it should be served only slightly chilled.

Great cherry aroma with some light coffee ground. Flavor follows but more heavy on the coffee grounds which isn’t quite as pleasant.

Pours dark with brown head like a stout. Black cherry is subtle in the aroma but sweet and sour in the taste.

3.7
abemorsten (3683) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2012
Shared 355 ml bottle at Cardinaal. Pitch black with a small light brown film that laves good lacing. Butter cherry and roasted malts on the nose. Fruity roasted, sour and light meaty mouth. Full body. Dry tongue.

Looking for a dessert beer? Small head. Slightly heavy palate. Chocolate and cherries. Sweet, but not over powering. Great for Christmas, after dinner.

Bottle as an extra from Mike, thanks man! Pour is a deep, dark brown, with a ring of mocha head that sits around the edge, a bit of a red-ish tinge when viewed side on. Pretty looking beer! Aroma is milk caramel, milk chocolate, LOTS sweet caramel malts, some ill-defined dark fruit. I really don’t get a ton of cherry here, but more a nice sweet porter with a touch of fruit. Tastes isn’t quite so nice, and really gets muddled in sweet malt, chocolate, fruit, toffee, vanilla, and the like. Finishes too sweet for me. Not a terrible brew, would be a bit nicer with a crisper finish and perhaps a bit dryer. Thanks again Mike!
