Draught (backlog). Deep reddish brown colour with a small off-white fluffy head. Aroma is sour berries, some sweet malts, mild roast and liquorice. Flavour is berries, roasted malts, some toffee, liquorice and mild ashes. Nice sour edge, which actually reminds a bit of infected sourness, but still not that harsh.

jmgreenuk (4006) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2012
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Very dark mahogany pour. Light head with some lacing. Didn't get much from the aroma but didn't expect to either. The strange thing for me with this beer is that I like cranberries and I like some sourness in my ales, but this beer is sour and packed full of cranberry flavours. The cranberry is just way too overpowering for me. If I have fruit in my beer I like the flavour to be subtle, but with this beer it hit me right in the face. I had hoped the beer might grow on me as I moved further down the glass, but it didn't. I'll stick with Cranberry juice from Tesco instead of in my Meantime stouts in future! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thepeter (278) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2012
Light Brown with a red hue, Little head, little lacing. Roasty aroma with some berry sweetness and cranberry. Taste is sour, some roasted malt and sour/bitter cranberry taste. Palate is a bit thin for the style and more carbonated than i would liike. Overall I liked the sour taste but everything else was average.

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2012
On tap. Pours brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts with some coffee and wood. Taste is little malty with a acidic bite from cranberries. Little sweetness and berry-like fruitiness. The acidity and fruity taste is very subtle and natural, very refreshing and peculiar. Soft carbonation, medium mouthfeel. Overall, definitely interesting offering but a bit underattenuated in aromas and flavors.

lusikka (5937) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2012
Draught @ O’Hara’s, Tampere.
Pours a dark brown, slightly transparent colour with an off-white head. Rich aroma of malts, chocolate and roasted coffee. Flavour of toasted malts, coffee, chocolate and stinging cranberries. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel with a mouth-drying, rough finish because of the cranberries. Interesting but something is a bit off.
