Poured from a bottle. Deep black color with a tan head that has good retention and left mild lacing all the way down the glass. Unfortunately, the appearance was pretty much the best thing about this beer. It was hard to get a good nose on the beer, but the cherry smell was vey faint. Along with it were toasted malts and grains, but once again, very faint and hard to really pick up on. I didn't much care for the taste. I thought it was a bit too tart and sour. The tartness of it actually distracts from the "cherry" flavor, of which there is little. A bit of a roasted flavor in the background, but not much. Medium bodied with a little bit too much carbonation that tickled the mouth. In conjunction with the sour taste, it wasn't too pleasing. My mouth was left feeling sticky and coated.

I had high hopes for this beer and was kind of let down. Disappointing aroma and taste, very flat, tart, and uninviting. Probably won't be having this one again.

This beer pours black with a 1/8 inch tan head and heavy lace to the end. The aroma is of dark cherries, wood, and chocolate. The flavor is complex with sour cherry up front followed through by dark chocolate and mild hoppy notes. There's a mild hop bitterness that fades and the flavor is pure dark cherries as it warms. The mouthfeel is full and mildly syrup-like but it works. Atwater Cherry Stout is a good brew, recommended.
