Rogue Ales Doubles Down on Cherry Beers with Debut of Cherry Choctabulous & Double Time Cherry Lime

Double_Time_Cherry_Lime_Single_Can_16ozRogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) has officially announced that it will launch two new cherry-themed beers – Cherry Choctabulous Milk Stout and Double Time Cherry Lime Imperial Berliner Weisse – in November 2019.

Here to put an added cherry (or two) on top of its 2019 Release Calendar, Rogue Ales is introducing these two new Limited Release offerings (descriptions sourced directly from the brewery’s press release):

Cherry Choctabulous

Cherry Choctabulous, a new addition to Rogue’s seasonal line-up, drinks like a cherry cordial in a bottle. This rich and creamy stout opens with a luscious cherry aroma and flavor that quickly gives way to indulgent and satisfying notes of dark chocolate.

“Cherry and chocolate are the star ingredients in this rich milk stout that we made for sharing during the holidays,” says Rogue Vice President of Marketing Bliss Dake. “This delicious stout tastes like candy in a bottle and is the ideal treat for sipping on a cold winter night.”

Double Time Cherry Lime

Double Time Cherry Lime, an imperial Berliner Weisse juiced up with cherry and lime, is a light-bodied brew that packs a big punch. This beer offers a delicate balance of sweet cherries and tart lime for easy sipping during the busy season. The sour base sets the stage for the tart and sweet cherry notes to play off the citrus from the lime.

“Double Time Cherry Lime pushes the boundaries of beer,” says Rogue Brewmaster Joel Shields. “It mixes two unique styles for a naturally sour yet still sweet taste. This surprisingly refreshing and fruity beer will brighten up the cold and dreary winter days.”

Cherry Choctabulous and Double Time Cherry Lime are scheduled to debut in November 2019 with plans to hang around for a limited time. Cherry Choctabulous will have availability in 22 oz. bottles and on draft while Double Time Cherry Lime will be available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft.  You can expect to find both of these new offerings at craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of Rogue’s distribution area.  Prost!
