Light but delicous Stout
This was the first batch of home brew for me. 2 weeks in the primary. 1 week in a secondary with 32oz of Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate instead of the cherry extract. its been bottled two weeks now and its come out pretty darn good. A good light bodied roasted finish with a good hint of cherry. Will buy again!

Adding more cherry extract could possibly make it a litte better
I wasn't impressed with the Cherry flavor however, I was impressed with the beers finish. It was full bodied, very good hoppy flavor but not enough Cherry flavor for my taste. I also think it could have been just a little more stout. In draft form it produced a nice creamy head. I'm not sure if adding the sugar included in the kit was a mistake or not but it had a great finish and polish to it. Since I keg my batches I'm not sure whether this had any affect or not but I would guess not. I will definitely be purchasing this kit again but I will purchase an additional bottle of Cherry Extract in an effort to further enhance my taste buds experience. It is a great recipe to experiment with.

night cap cherry
Deep dark beer with a slight taste of cherry. The coffee taste does work with cherry nicely. Smooth to drink and a very rich mouth feel.

night cap cherry stout
Easy kit to make. Beer is dark and very stout, the cherry flavor blends well with the dark malts. Hops are well hidden and unnoticed.

In Secondary
I modified the recipe a bit. I like oatmeal stouts so I added 1 1/2c whole grain oats to the mash. I added 24oz frozen black cherries at 40 mins in the boil. My OG was way high: ) 1.082. After 4days in the primary, SG=1.011! Taste was quite good. I left the cherries in the primary. In secondary now 1 week, haven't tested SG again yet. I plan on adding 1qt sweet cherry juice when I bottle, and some of the extract. I will update when I bottle/ keg.

Smooth light stout
I bottled with Cherry Juice to get a more real flavor than the extract could give. It came out great, smooth and flavorful, and I'm enjoying a bottle or two a week.

Light bodied
Brewed this beer according to instructions. Turned out good but has a very light body. Smooth with a very "roasted" finish, minimal hoppiness.

Good Beer
All in all a very good beer. I received a lot of compliments on this beer. I agree with the other reviews, the body is very light. But an excellent roasted flavor and after 6-8 weeks there was a perfect cherry aroma. I will be making this beer again in the future, but I will try real fruit next time.
