Think chocolate-covered cherry and you have Cherry Wood Stout. It’s not too sweet, as the dark chocolate notes really help keep this one altogether. It’s definitely more barrel-forward than I expected and I appreciated that. I think that’s a big reason why it’s not too sweet, and even at 14.3% ABV, you can get the cherry notes coming through. You’ll also get light notes of toffee and vanilla but those are much more in the background. For this beer, Goose Island took fully matured Bourbon County Stout and then finished it on toasted fruitwood that had a honeycomb-like shape to allow for maximum flavor and help get the ripe cherry flavor.

    Almost 100% black with a decent brown head. Smells like oak and bourbon. The mouthfeel is solid but not thick. The taste is not a lot different than the original but it’s a lot less sweet. Definitely Has hints of dark cherry,oak and bourbon.
