Comes out with less viscosity than your average stout, but still mostly black, some brown to the edge with a mild 1/5" tan head. Aroma dropped so much cherry, they do not skimp, its wicked powerful.

They went with less 2 row here to allow the cherry to pop I'm thinking, and it works quite well. Pretty much every cherry stout always seems to take a kick in the ratings department, but if you like them, this is top notch. Has some mild vanilla notes with it. Anyways, enjoyable cherry stout for days.

Dug this one out of the cellar, it was from the unplugged series not thumbprint but whatever. 12oz bottle into snifter, it appears a cola brown with nice clarity and a tan cap.

This smells like cherry juice blended with cocoa towards back almost like a cherry tootsie roll if there was such a thing.

It tastes sweet and fruity with cherry and chocolate tootsie roll. There is a slight bite to the finish that is slight cherry juice, slight alcohol.

This is medium in body with modest carbonation. Honestly surprised how this has held up. So much fruit sweetness.
