Bell's Cherry Stout

While out at dinner at the Black Gryphon in Elizabethtown, I ordered a glass of Bell’s Cherry Stout. The beer pours a black color with red hues and a thin filmy brown head. The aroma consists of chocolate, cherry pie, vanilla, and molasses. The taste is sweet with lightly sour cherries up front, dark chocolate to balance, and a dry powdery cocoa finish. Vanilla and molasses linger in the after taste. The alcohol content is 7.0% ABV. While not as good as the Cerise, the cherry flavors in this beer do provide a nice accent to the dark and powdery chocolate flavors.
