Appalachian Brewing Company Chocolate Cherry Stout
I stopped into Appalachian Brewing Company of the Valentine's Day Weekend because they had released two kegs of Chocolate Cherry Stout at each location. The beer has a black color with red hues and a light tan head. The smell is toasted malts with chocolate accents. The taste starts with sweet cherry on the front and milk chocolate and toasted malts follow. The alcohol content is not posted on the website, but I would guess it to be around 6% ABV. I thought that this was an amazing beer and the cherry makes the ensemble work. The sweet accent to the bitter chocolate made a very enjoyable experience.
