Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a Coke soda fountain glass. Pours the color of dark caramel sauce, with a decent three-finger off-white head. The color belies the light body and mouthfeel of this wheat-based beer. The aromas and flavors are exactly as advertised on the label, and you can't fault it for that. Who doesn't like cherry Tootsie-Roll Pops? Quite tasty and drinkable, and a very good beer overall.

Smells like a maraschino cherry with some dark chocolate. Tastes just like a chocolate covered cherry. Look at the label. Look at the name. What did you expect? Not exactly a complicated brew with an intricate mouthful, but it's definitely like a liquid chocolate covered cherry. The name and description fit... Good job o Fallon

It has a dark chocolate taste but a cheap cherry soda/cola/pop finish, it could be better but it an okay beer.

Taste Rating in Words: It's that off brand of soda, that isn't bad but has something just a little different going on.

Boy, the reviews are all over the place on this one (24% deviation). Pours like a cherry cola with a thin layer of fizz that goes fast. Smell's like a liquid chocolate covered cherry, really good actually. Tastes like a watered down liquid chocolate covered cherry, but it's a decent flavor if you like chocolate covered cherries. Light bodied, pretty much like a soda. I would drink again if offered one, but wouldn't buy again.

This smells really strongly of chocolate and cherry. It really does taste like a chocolate covered cherry. It's a unique beer I would not want a lot of but it is as advertised.

Too soda-pop-y. Cherry notes taste pretty fake. Several reviews accuse it of being "cough syrupy". I think they'd a little harsh, but not unsupported. O'Fallon's vanilla pumpkin was smooth, rich, and very "real" tasting, so the artificial notes in this one were a bit disappointing.

Looks like an opaque orange tootsie pop color. Head is stable at a thin ring. 20% transparency.

Smells like a cherry Tootsie Pop. Dead on.

Tastes kinda like I just finished eating a cherry tootsie pop and took a swig of Busch Light. That's not necessarily a bad thing. I can jive with this. It's not robust or overly sweet - just kind of a lingering emptiness of what used to be cherry candy and chewy chocolate. Then you take a sip of beer, and it's complete.

Feel is extremely light bodied and carbonated, hints of stickiness or maybe that's my imagination from a sucker.

Overall, it does what's advertised. A bit on the light side, but definitely not too sweet for me, and the nose is just amazeballs. Not something I'd buy several of, but I'd be willing to sway my non-craft peeps with this one.

Pours a rich, opaque burgundy. The head is fizzy and leaves quickly. The aroma is steeped in cherries, with a chocolate background. It's a nice, comforting smell. Cherry notes are at the front of the taste, with smooth chocolatey notes playing back up. Tastes like your eating some Valentine's box of heart's chocolates. Mouth feel is good. It feels a bit heavy on the carbonation, but still good. Overall, pretty decent beer. The cherry and the chocolate really pop out, so just be aware.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

One of the worst "beers" I’ve ever had. If someone made a chocolate cherry soda, this is probably what it would taste like. Very fizzy. Neither the chocolate or the cherry flavors were appealing at all. Cough syrup mixed with tootsie rolls is a fantastic description.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a hazy amber with a medium sized white head. The aroma is as advertised, chocolate and cherries. The taste is a nice blend of chocolate and cherries. A real tasty beer

Deep brown in color with an eggshell colored head. The aroma is different than I expected...intense cherry and intense chocolate...but it is so upfront that it borders on cough syrup and chocolate tootsie roll (cherry tootsie roll?). The taste is sweet, with lots of cherry flavor, followed by chocolate. Intense flavor and full body. This in an interesting beer. Seems a bit artificial, but still, the smell is enjoyable.
