12oz bottle. No apparent code date. Appearance: light brown, clear, with little off white foam head. Aroma: Intense bing cherry. Hard do discern any other aroma. Taste: Light toasted, chocolate malt with sweet cherry flavor on the backside. Malt flavor is light and one dimensional. Mouthfeel: Light bodied, quite thin, with low carbonation. Finish: bing cherry flavor lingers well more than any malt character. Overall: This beer tastes as advertised. Malt charter is subdued, and body really thin, which lets the cherry flavoring overpower. With more malt character and body this could be a good beer. Would like to also see more of a true tart cherry flavor as opposed to the sweet flavoring in this beer.

Pours a brown color with a off white inch thick foamy head. Smell of chocolate, cherry, alcohol, and sugar. Taste of chocolate, cherry, a bit lemony, and alcohol on the back end. Light mouth feel, watery, and very little flavor that quickly slips away helps this beer a lot because it has a very artificial flavoring tootsie pop flavor to it that would be overbearing.

I'm not a huge fan of cherry. I originally got this for my wife to try because I figured it would be one beer that she would be willing to try and she might actually like, but she said she didn't even want to try it.

The look, smell, and feel aren't bad at all. The smell is literally of a cherry Tootsie Pop. I thought going into it that I wouldn't like it because I don't really like cherry flavored stuff all that much. While the first couple of sips were pretty decent as time went on, it just got worse. If you love cherry, chocolate, and beer, you will love this. Like I said cherry just isn't my thing.

A- Pours a slightly redish brown. I guess that's the color you'd get from chocolate and cherries together, but I have to admit I was expecting something a lot blacker. When was the last time you had a beer with the "chocolate" in the name that wasn't black or at least close to it. Head is not much-just a splash of light foam, and pretty white at that.

S- Hmm. Not a good hmm. Like a "what the heck is that?" And as I sniff further it comes to me- maraschino cherries- masked in a veil of fake smelling chocolate. It's like you took the liquid from the bright red dye #5 cherries and added to it some mildly alcoholic chocolate syrup from the coffee bar. And glossing over it all is a distinct note of coconut oil. So I get the cherry chocolate thing, but it's not a good combo here.

T- More of the maraschino thing. There's kind of a chocolate covered maraschino cherry, but one that went kinda bad.

M- Doesn't leave much on the tongue which is nice. I wouldn't want to taste this beer for longer than it was in my mouth anyway.

O-Kinda gross. It has the foundation of a good flavor profile, but way too artificial and unbalanced and not enough malt flavor. Not recommended.

Smells and tastes like a chocolate-covered cherry. It's like a melted tootsie roll mixed with maraschino cherry syrup in an overly-carbonated, non-descript beer.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a brown color with amber hues and a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of chocolate covered cherry. Taste is milder than the smell. Sweet cherries, chocolate, malts. Feels light in the medium-light in the mouth and overall an unusual and different beer worth trying.

Amber in color with a fingernail of off white heads is barely present. Overly sweet chocolate aroma with maraschino cherry hints. Massive chocolate flavor with maraschino cherry in the background. Flavor cloys heavily. The body is overly carbonated and very sweet.
