I was afraid at first of the idea of this beer, as many surely are, but after close evaluation of my own thoughts I came to this conclusion: never use the name of a fruit in the name of a beer. If Ranger Creek never disclosed what they put in this it might have even been made the beer so mysterious that it actually makes it seem better than it actually is. Instead, thereís an aversion to the beer before you even experience it. I mean... a stout... with strawberries? Really?
Overall, after itís all said and done and the beerís down the hatch, itís (at its core) a very smooth stout, well-flavored and well-bodied, easy to drink, but with a gentle addition: frozen strawberries. Yes, it tastes just like frozen, dehydrated strawberries. Maybe even strawberry sorbet or milkshake (thanks to the lactose). It certainly is a novelty. Although a good one, I donít imagine this is the type of beer that many people will want to buy and drink over and over again. Chicks will likely dig it, but men will likely be annoyed by it, even though its cheery nature is due more by its fruity flavor than its sweetness. Then again, there are alot of men out there with questionable palates. Ah, well. Points for pulling this off, Ranger Creek.

1st sampled at Flying Saucer on the Lake Beerfest, but I was so toasted that I forgot to rate this brew. I remember it being bad ass, so this has been on my must try radar for a while. Along came Fort Worth Untapped. Poured a dark brown color with a thin tan top. Taste of strawberry, chocolate milk, roasted and toasted malts, smooth finish. Nice carbonation, well balanced!
