Billed as “Big Poppa Cherry Stout” at the Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA. $6.00 for small sevring – still very good value.
Let me start by saying a couple of things. I didn’t think I would like this a great deal and at the same time, one of these is plenty in one sitting to make sure that you still enjoy it.
Jet black viscous pour with a large, dark brown mocha head. This is THICK, but considering everything, very drinkable. To be honest I didn’t notice the cherries a great deal. Either in the nose (this is a weak spot for me when reviewing) or the taste. I think that is a good thing since it means the beer has not been infused with artiicial sweetness or fruit, and the whole experience is more authentic.
Outside of that all that you would expect from a RIS. Big alcohol, big burned malts, some mild cocoa and coating mouthfeel. Delicious sipper than actually got consumed a little too quickly.
