3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: More berry than I’ve ever smelled in a stout; almost reminds me of "foreign" stouts with high berry esters. The tartness from the cranberry is very apparent; chocolate/roast and other stout characteristics are muted, but present. Appearance: Pitch black with a skin of bone, patchy head. Flavor: Very tart cranberry with a chocolate/light roast background; a "wild" stout if you will. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: As others have noted, I would’ve liked a little more malt background, but this was enjoyable nonetheless. Maybe the ultimate warm-weather stout.

@ Hyde Park Wine and Spirits / Cincinnati OH --- Clear very dark ruby brown color, head drops quickly to a cover, dots of lace. Taste is light malt that cruises quickly through the palate to a sour cranberry finish. Pretty simple, almost a lambic in style. Not complex, but very drinkable.

Cerveja escura que possui aromas e sabores tostados e um gosto frutado, ácido. É uma cerveja leve, que harmoniza com sobremesas de chocolate e frutas vermelhas. Interessante.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle, back label says 6% ABV. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours very dark brown with some ruby reddish tints and about an inch tan head. Head retention is decent, and there’s a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like cranberries, roasted malt, berries, and some chocolate. It’s a nice but light aroma. It tastes mostly like tart and sweet cranberries/berries, along with some chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of wood. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s smooth and easy enough to drink. I thought it was a decent enough brew, but I guess I was just expecting this to be better. Still, it’s worth a try if you’ve never had it before.
