Notes/Commercial Description:
Pennsylvania German’s translate “Schnickelfritz” to mean a Nix Nux, or a naughty rebellious child who is always getting into trouble. That sums up our family here at Saucony Creek, so in honor of our Pop-Pop’s chocolate covered cherry addiction during the winter months we brewed an Imperial Chocolate Cherry Milk Stout. Schnickelfritz is brewed with dark caramel malts, chocolate malts and lactose to create a smooth creamy mouth feel. Milk chocolate and real cherries are added for a winter warmer treat.

Review from notes
Had a very black color body with no head. Thev aroma as it warmed up was of roasted malt and chocolate. The taste had a very nice chocolate taste with the malt was very valanced. I didn't get any cherry flavor. Mouthfeel was smooth and overall it was a good beer.

Appearance is a dark brown with ruby edges and a finger of creamy head. The nose smells like cherries, but it’s more like something artificial than something that may have grown on a tree at one time. The taste is dominated by a cherry cough syrup flavor which is quite unpleasant. I did not get any hints of chocolate and it was difficult to judge the stout qualities with the nasty cough syrup flavor getting in the way.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a poco grande style glass.
A dark black body with barely a 1/2 fingers worth of head. Leaves a nice tan filmy lacing in the glass. Tiny bubbles stream up constantly, with what can be seen in the glass. Love the label!
A strong roasty smell with some faint bittersweet chocolate aromas. Very faint cherry smell, almost closer to a tart fruity smell.
Roasted malts, chocolate, sweet cherries. Body seems a little thin, but makes it very easy to drink. Love that milk stout smoothness and sweetness! This one doesn't disappoint in the flavor or mouthfeel category! Don't pick up on the 8% abv either, very nicely hidden.
Overall, what can I say other than outstanding! The cherries don't over power or dominate the taste. The tartness just adds a little something extra wit h the chocolate and lactose sweetness that is well balanced with the roasted malts. A winner in my book.
