Our Dark Cherry Stout is a classic dry stout, jet black with a tan head and the espresso-like bitterness of roasted grain. But it's also laced with natural cherry extract, which cuts through the burnt-coffee character and adds a subtle fruit flavor and aroma. Not overpowering like many fruit beers, this is a more restrained brew. Adding the cherry extract to taste at bottling lets you fine-tune the level of cherry character.
If you enjoyed Night Cap Cherry Stout, you'll love this kit!

Added a bit of black cherry along with the cherry that it came with, smooth and very flavorful stout!
Dark Cherry Stout Beer Recipe Kit
I’ve brewed this many times and have always liked it I don’t like the cherry flavored juice they ship with the kit because it is too sweet and tastes like medicine. Instead, I buy a small bottle of 100% Tart Montmorency Cherry Concentrate juice. I empty and sanitize the cherry juice bottle they ship and fill it completely full with my tart cherry juice — about 5 ounces (more if you want more cherry taste). You will taste the cherry and it won’t be sicking sweet. I also added a 4 ounce bag of coca nibs. The first taste is cherry and it finishes with chocolate. I call this modification Chocolate Cherry Stout. You can find the cherry concentrate in most grocery stores in the refrigerated section.
Just Made the batch Saturday, the instructions did not fit the ingredients. Should turn out fine. We'll see in 6 weeks!
