THE stout tasting Pt1. Thanks to Bruce for this much wanted beer. Clear red - amber, little pale cream coloured head. Softish palate, slightly airy. Lovely sweet and sour fruity apples and pears nicely contrasted with tart cherry, strawberry and raspberry. A little sweet cream and then a soft finish. This was a joy of fruity zing after the triple Dark Lord attack!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Clear burnt-orange ale with ruby highlights and a large, frothy, off-white head. The bouquet rivals that of Belgian Red – cherries, graham, caramel crème, vanilla and a faint note of black currant. Medium to full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is so very fruity – cherries, currants and cranberries. Moderate sweetness and modest tartness mingle nicely with a mild, tannic bitterness undoubtedly provided by the cranberries. A subtle - yet luxuriant - swirl of vanilla, toasted oak, brown sugar and caramel cannot be ignored. Really just a fantastic balancing act here. Lightly sweet, tangy, cherry finish capped by a gentle feel of cranberry raspiness. This holds its own - right up there with Belgian Red and Raspberry Tart. Kick ass fruit beer!
