If you’re a red wine gal and want to get into beer, you should start with this. This cherry stout would probably taste better in the winter months though. I personally found it too tart and the chocolate notes were not chocolatley enough for me. It has little kick of hop taste to it too but it is not overbearing. If you love cherries this is definitely for you. It is 7.0% ABV and it hits you like a tall glass of wine would. It left me feeling a little tipsy which is cost effective, but a six pack would probably make me fall asleep.
