From the Back Room – Cherry Stout

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.  

the foam! the foam!

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.
