Did you add the cherries in the primary, secondary, or steep after wort boil? And how long were they in there? I've had three pounds of macerated frozen raspberries in my secondary for almost 2 weeks now. Thinking about kegging this weekend. I definitely smell and and taste the raspberry, although, no hint of chocolate. Still a good stout.
