Introducing Chocolate Cherry Stout, an all‑new beer brewed with cherries and cocoa nibs for fall season enjoyment.
While we are renowned for our ever-evolving line of seasonal stouts, Chocolate Cherry Stout inaugurates a fresh new twist to the style.
“What sets this beer apart from our past stouts is the inclusion of cherries, which are added during the fermentation process. It was a no-brainer as a next step for us, because who doesn’t like dark chocolate and cherry flavor combo?” – Brewmaster Matt Brynildson
“We have a lot of experience in brewing with cocoa nibs as well as making cherry-infused beers at our Barrelworks wild ale cellar—but this is the first time we’ve brought it all together into a single beer,” Brynildson said.
The result is a quintessential seasonal stout offering subtle cherry fruit and chocolate-cocoa flavors with dark-roasted malt complexity and a rich, velvety mouthfeel.
Brynildson added that the creation of Chocolate Cherry Stout was partly inspired by a bit of personal nostalgia.
“I was weaned on Bell’s Cherry Stout back when I was a college student, and I still hold that beer up as the benchmark of this style,” Brynildson said. “Chocolate Cherry Stout draws inspiration from that beer while folding in some California soul.”
