Atwater Cherry Stout

12 oz single.
Really not sure what’s going on with this.
A dark brown body with a decent enough head, but it fades pretty quickly to leave very little lace. Poor retention.
Nose gives a little malty chocolate.
The tastes are odd. The cherry obviously manifests itself, but to be honest it is simply a sour, “beer gone off” type taste. It’s odd. I can’t really work out if the beer is rancid, or if the cherry notes are indeed supposed to taste that way! Difficult to distinguish between the (potentially) good and the (obviously) bad. Weird.
A little more fruit in the aftertaste and the acidity drops off a bit.
Interesting and peculiar beer to pt it mildly. Might be interesting fresh, near the source and perhaps even out of a cask, but from the bottle and a long way from home it’s all over the place.
