Ellicottville Chocolate Cherry Bomb
On the way Niagara Falls, I stopped in to Ellicottville Brewing Company in Ellicottville, NY and ordered a glass of the Chocolate Cherry Bomb. The beer pours a black color with a milkshake-like mocha colored head. The aroma consists of sweet dark chocolate and smells very similar to a cordial cherry. The taste is smooth and sweet with dark chocolate up front before the cherry flavor settles in. It is very light bodied but has lots of flavor including some toasted malts that dry out the mouth a little on the finish. The alcohol content is 8.2% ABV. This beer was so good that the girlfriend wanted to stop in to the brewery on the way home to have another one of the Chocolate Cherry Bombs. I highly recommend trying this if you get a chance.
