Black Forest Cake Stout with Cherry
Victory Brewing recently introduced their Blackboard Series Release No. 07: Black Forest Cake Stout with Cherry. This is a 2017 release. 7.5% alcohol.
Aroma full of sweet chocolate, mocha, coffee and Christmas, but just a faint hint of cherries. Cherries, however, steal the flavor show! Super juicy and nicely tart cherries. Sweet chocolate does add some balance but remains a secondary flavor. A little coffee and roast.
Beer has a dessert quality, rich, good flavors, but the cherries got to be a little much by the end of the bottle. Wanted a lot more Chocolate CAKE!
