Stroud Brewery have been requested in BeerCraft a few times, and I’m a big stout fan, so this cherry version has me excited.The can is a 330ml, and it says it’s won a good taste award, the can says it’s dark and rich, with plenty of cherries, like a Black Forest gateau.It is certainly dark, a big and creamy head.So, aroma, not much, until the head dissipates slightly, then you begin to get a gentle waft of cherry, the dark malts give molasses and there is a hint of coffee & chocolate.For the flavour, a richness of dark fruits but the cherries are subtle. They are there, but could be more. Not like a cherryade, but could be more like a Black Forest gateaux, so a little disappointing.A balanced sweetness rounds of the medium bodied stout, creamy, a good flavour, rich with dark chocolate.
Overall pretty good, just a shame that we are not getting much of the cherries though.
