Background:
We had a fantastic “Team Building” event and took a tour of the Fordham/Dominion brewery in Dover DE. It was a great morning and after sampling several of their beers I purchased a variety pack of their sodas to take home to the kids. We have their Old Dominion Root Beer on draft for just about every family event. I have had and reviewed their Ginger Ale and really liked it. I tried to save one each of the variety pack but the kids got to it before me. This bottle of the Black Cherry is the only one left. I thought it would be fun to changes things up in this review and do a soda.

Review:
Appearance
The soda pours a very dark almost completely opaque burgundy black with a quickly diminishing purple head.

Smell
The nose is great with deep rich dark cherry aromas.

Taste and Mouthfeel
Wow, that first sip just brought me back to my childhood; what a great first sip. The taste starts out with touch of sweetness up front followed by a cleansing effervesce over the tongue in the middle of the sip. The back-end is clean and refreshing with an additional carbonation release on the swallow that continues to mask the flavors. The finish is where the whole experience comes together with great natural dark cherry flavors leaving an almost creamy mouthfeel on the tongue. The final aftertaste is of lingering dark cherry flavors.

Well there is not much more I can say about this delicious soda especially since it’s almost gone already.

This is another A for Old Dominion Sodas.

A | Dominion Black Cherry Soda is a great nostalgic through back to my childhood with rich natural dark cherry flavors leaving a rich and creamy mouthfeel. What a great experience.
