New Glarus Unplugged Cherry Stout
Served in New Belgium globe glass
A: Pours deep amber-brown and backlighting reveals nice clarity. Head is not noteworthy.
S: Surprise, surprise, pie cherries are front and center. Smells sweet like an Icee. Additional aromas include vanilla, wood, and subtle vinegar.
T: Sweet pie cherries with vanilla that lead into very light notes of wood and vinegar. A little chocolate mousse presents itself in finish.
M: Light body and fizzy carbonation. Drinks like a two-liter of pop that is just showing signs of going flat.
O: Too sweet, too light and too simple. I'm coming to the conclusion that New Glarus fruit ales are simply different points on the same spectrum. And it all tastes like delicious pop. Not delicious beer.
