12oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 4.99. Bottled 4/5/18. Served in a New Holland tulip. Enjoyed 5/30/18.

Pours black with about a finger of pale tan head. The light foam recedes to a large central island, a wide crown and a good deal of lacing.

Smells of cherry syrup, bourbon, chocolate and a little roasty character.

A strong cherry cough medicine flavor kicks off and is persistent throughout. Chocolate, faint bourbon, some wet oak, caramel and a mild booze heat.

Smooth, medium full body with fairly light carbonation. Cherry cough syrup and bourbon-tinged chocolate in the finish.

New Holland has a strong enough track record with these variations of their flagship that I attempt to try them all. The medicinal quality prevents Cherry Chocolate from being all I’d hoped for but is still an enjoyable brew in its own right.

Black in color with fingernail of brown on top. No chance of light penetration with this beer. The aroma is of bourbon, cherries, and dark chocolate. I'm tasting dark chocolate covered bourbon soaked cherries. The mouth is thick, rich, chewy, and decadent.

This poured a deep black with a small tan head. The smell was nice with a strong bourbon nose. The taste was what you would expect, bourbon with a taste of chocolate and a little bit of cherry but it wasn't very noticeable. The feel was a little thin for me almost watery. It did do a good job of hiding the alcohol but I was hoping for a little more from this beer.

Pours a two finger khaki head, that fades slowly leaving traces of lace. Black color, no high lights. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Bourbon nose and taste is similar with bourbon, hints of cherry chocolate. Higher abv, 11.0%, is hidden. 12oz bottle $4.80 from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.
