I poured the drink and it immediately resembled the color of a Cherry Coke. I took a whiff of the aroma and the smell of fresh cherries hit me over the head. The first taste revealed a perfect equilibrium of stout and cherry flavors. The cherry tastes natural--completely reminiscent of the New Glarus Wisconsin Red Belgian Ale.
Its only downfall is that it's a bit hard to drink a lot of it. I had it with pizza, and while it remained enjoyable throughout, I'm not sure it's the perfect pairing. Maybe chocolate would go better with the beer.
Either way, get it while you can, it's outstanding.
