Wow - what a pleasant surprise and a wonderful mistake! Haven’t enjoyed a beer this much in a while. Pours black with deep brown highlights. Pie cherry and pie crust nose. Taste follows nose with just hints of baking spice and a good dose of chocolate. Great balance with a nice tartness from the cherry. cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Tap @ brewery. Dark brown appearance with a tan colored head. Mild sour cherry, dark malty nose. Sweet and sour, dark chocolate malty flavor. Sour cherry and chocolate finish. Pretty good. User101733 (14) - - JAN 9, 2012
[draft] Dark, inky brown pour. A thin head even for a stout - more so given wheat blend. Really surprising aroma - burnt pie crust notes, tart cherry, and roasty malt. Tastes of tart cherry and dark chocolate. Nice mouthfeel with some roundness. Best beer I had at the tasting room that day, and worth a visit to try. beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - OCT 18, 2012
I enjoyed this a bit more than the Kriek. The roast notes add a dimension that cuts some of the sweetness without losing the big pie aroma and spicing. Like having pie and a coffee.

On tap at Strange brewing poured a nearly opaque dark brown with a lasting brown head. Aromas of carmel, pie cherries, cocoa, light roasted malt and a hint of coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finmish. Flavors of pie cherries, cocoa, carmel and roasted malt with a smooth dry lingering roasty chery finish. onceblind (10862) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Sampled at Denver Winter Brewfest 2011. Appearance was odd. Dark brown, very hazy, with clowdy opaque edges, and no head. Not appetizing. Gracefully, it smells better than it looks. Chocolate stoutiness mixed with Belgian fruity yeastiness and a whiff of cherry pie. Slightly sour aroma at the end. Flavor is right-freaking-on! Cherries hit first with some cocoa and mild hop bitterness bringing up the rear. Slightly sour, but in a good, sweet cherry-like way. The sooner this company starts bottling this stuff, the better.
