This is the darkest beer so far. The Dark Cherry Stout from Northern Brewer is a dry stout, so if you hold your nose and drink you don’t get a sweet taste. It comes with 4 oz of cherry extract.
As per the recipe, you put the extract in just before bottling. Smelled good and was noticable after a couple weeks in the bottle. After that, I couldn’t have told you it was there. I’d probably up the cherry extract quite a bit when making this again.
When poured, no matter how carefully, there was a hilarious amount of foam. The foam reminded me of the old molasses sponge candy. Definitely not the fruited wheat beers that are so popular, but a nice change from standard stout.
