Notes/Commercial Description:
One of our biggest beers offered, the Black Cherry Porter is a full flavored strong porter brewed with sweet black cherries. The formula consists of several different malts, lending deep opaque color with purple lace from the fresh fruit it's fermented with. Nearly 4 lbs. of fresh sweet black cherries go into each gallon of brew. A flavor of deep lustrous malt complexity and fullness, yet smooth with soft hints of toasted chocolate and pleasurable black cherry flavors. This beer has become one of our most sought after seasonal selections. People have lined up to drink nothing but Black Cherry Porter when brought to beer festivals and other off premise events. Now we bring it to you, enjoy.

A-dark brown black color with a light brown head and decent lacing

S-chocolate, roasted malt, cherry, hint of coffee, slightly smoky

T-dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, cherry, hints of smoke, slightly bitter finish

F-medium to full body with moderate carbonation, smooth and cream

O-a well-made porter, the cherry is well-integrated into the beer, probably my favorite beer with cherries so far
