Bell's Cherry Stout | Bell's Brewery, Inc.

When it comes to beer, I often like a nice, dark stout. It's rich & tastes somewhat like coffee. Today's craft beer is a refreshing mixture of that classic stout mixed with tart cherry. Bell's Cherry Stout is an American stout brewed with cherry juice & bottled by Bell's Brewery, Inc. Yum!

On the bottle it says "A mysterious dance of tart Michigan cherries with the dark, roasted malts of a big and bold stout." And that's pretty much how it tastes. The cherry tastes natural without the artificial flavor that some cherry products leave you with. Slightly sour, totally tasty. With 7% alcohol by volume (ABV), Bell's Cherry Stout will leave you feeling pretty good.

The beer itself is extremely dark with a mild head (foam). Initially it's quite tart due the cherries but when swallowed, the aftertaste is smooth & rich similar to any good stout (at least if you enjoy stouts). This retails at around $16.99 for a 6-pack, which isn't the most economical price for beer. However, if you want to splurge, I absolutely suggest trying this. We purchased this for my boyfriend's birthday & we didn't regret it.

The Cherry Stout is pretty heavy & not something you want to drink on a hot & sunny day, but perhaps something to slowly sip on in winter. Actually, it's only available in the winter, so that makes sense. This has a shelf life of 12 months.

I'd likely repurchase this again but sparingly due to the price. The taste is unique & also for that reason, I'd drink this only occasionally. Have you ever had a cherry stout before? Is it something you're interested in? What's your beverage of choice? :]

  1. If I am at home, I prefer a glass of wine. But if I go out, beer is the answer:)) I never tried one with cherries though, but sounds so goooood. I love cherries, I like beer, winning combo for me.

    1. It's interesting because it's tart & not sweet as I would've imagined. :]

  3. I've never tried a cherry stout before, but then again, I am not exactlyyyy a fan of beer :p The foam and stuff just intimidates me. Not to mention, the after-beer-feeling. Hahaha! But this looks like a delicious treat, and I would definitely love to give this a try ^_^ Loved your review, Carmen! :)

  6. I don't know if I've ever had stout. I'm not a beer drinker in general but from your description of stout I think I could actually dig it.

  11. Oh this looks like something I'd try. Most of the time I see fruitier beers as lighter but I find it interesting that this is a heavier kind.

  15. I actually hate beer (with a passion) but how freakin’ cute are those labels? I want to convert myself just for that adorable design. It’s actually the reason I started drinking Rekorderlig but I got lucky with that as it actually a tolerable flavour haha I do love a cherry flavour though & these look quite intriguing.

  16. You're so lucky you can drink beer - I don't know why but it gives me the worst stomach aches! And I live in a very beer oriented country so I often get very weird looks from people when I say I don't drink it... sigh...
