Wild Rose Brewery Seasonal Cherry Porter

Posted by Paul Sass, February 24th, 2011 | 4 Comments

  I received a 1 Litre bottle of Wild Rose Brewery's Seasonal Cherry Porter for Christmas, a strong ale containing 6.5 alc/vol.    We are great fans of  Calgary's own Wild Rose Brewery, as not only do they brew great beer, but it is all natural and made without preservatives.    This Seasonal Cherry Porter was brewed using only the plumpest, ripest whole BC cherries.    Each glass of Cherry Porter is lush and creamy with a fruity aroma.

Rich and sensual, the flavour is reminiscent of Black Forest cake, with sweet chocolate notes and a slightly smoky  character from the roasted malts.    A thoroughly enjoyable brew to enjoy during this bitter cold snap!

Looking forward to trying Wild Rose's latest Seasonal, which is an Imperial IPA.     Blog to follow!

Remember, you can take our Barons beer kits and tweak and play and create your own microbrewery style beer!

Which brew kit would you start with to make a beer like this?? How would you make this beer?

Hi Tom -- Start with our Barons Brown Ale. Add the following steeped grains: 250 grams Black Patent Malt,
250 grams Chocolate Malt & 125 grams Roasted Barley.
Add 3 lbs per gallon of cherries. The Home Vintner is bringing in different grains and hops for our beer lovers! Also, you might want to join us on March 22 @ 7 pm for our Advanced Beermaking Class at the NW Calgary store. See our Event Calendar for more details. Cheers!

I started a batch of this 4 days ago and wow, I think I got a little picky in only using the ripest cherries I could find because after adding the cherries and the wort I pasteurized them in the SG was up over 1.072. I had to take the level up to about 25L with water to get it down to 1.064. I hope I'm not making rocket fuel here lol, although I'm not too worried about 8%+ as long as it isn't harsh.
