COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Stony Brook Red: This unique brew defies traditional beer style definition. The rich, malty brew combines notes of tart fruit from the yeast with a toasty oak character from the barrel aging. The long dry finish is almost wine-like. This is a beer that is satisfying on its own and also pairs well with many foods such as braised or roasted meats, beef stews and strong salty cheeses.

coldbrewky (1457) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle via Bonster and the guys at this weeks random blind tasting. Flat with slim lacing. Deep copper all the way thru. The helix of taste from the oak and msturdy malt body twang with some fleeting vanilla and then the tannic finish that is long and airy. I fell asleep on the couch after half a glass., but I had a long week. They let me sleep untill making fun of me got old and then they woke me up and told me to get drinking. Easy drinking.

Thanks to Ed from Heritage for sharing. Light red color. Very light aroma with yeast. Flavor has just a hint of brett, and it is over a year old, so this beer has had time. Very light metallic and grain flavors. It is great they attempted it, but would have been better if they had executed properly.

Slightly cloudy red. Tart, cherry-ish aroma. Tastes winey, and fruity, with a little bit of oak. Not particularly complex, but tasty.

mbgrayson (560) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Pours reddish, with a light to medium tan head. Aroma of fruit, malty and oak notes. Tastes of a Belgian with fruit. The bottle aging and the oak are there too, but subtle. Also, fairly smooth. Thumbs up.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2010
2010 pre-Brewer’s Jam tasting. Dark orange, very small khaki head. the aroma is tart fruit, little bit of sweetness behind it. The flavor is honey, tart berries. There is a little bit of oakiness that comes toward the finish. Pretty good attempt, considering, but lacks complexity.
