Bottle shared at game night with Parksy, heavylaevy and TVM. In a word: gross. Weird jammy/earthy nose, and the palate goes downhill from there. Sweet, earthy, just all over the place.

Smooth and refreshing, obvious note of vanilla and hint of coffee. Copper red beer with light head. Fun if thin. HourGlass13 (1119) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2018
Pours up a beautiful clear red with a thick creamy pink head. Cake like aroma with roasted malt, vanilla. Tastes is similar with vanilla, roasted malt, some cherry, and a nice mild sweetness. Medium body and low carbonation. Very smooth. Ibrew2or3 (9047) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2018
12oz bottle pours with a clear rosy red amber colored body that supports a nice tan head of foam. The aroma offers up chocolate, white chocolate, a thin earthy dirty beet note and sweet maltiness. The taste delivers smooth malt sweetened and slickened chocolate leading into a modest yet growing fruity berry sensation that's faintly tart. Behind those notes is a thin earthy beet note. Fun beer.

Very cool bottle, and it pours a very neat clear red color. Not much of a nose. Taste has elements of a (session) stout - and has a bit of a sour taste to it. Not getting the chocolate. Not terrible, but all downhill from the pour.

On tap at Ballast Point in Little Italy in San Diego...neatest looking beer ever. sweet tasting but satifying MacBoost (1998) - Victor, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2018
Red pour, smelled like chocolate. Wasn't as sweet as I thought it would be. Not horrific, but a novelty for sure. Would not drink again. Had a weird earthy/spice note at the finish. Meh. scotchzombie (630) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2018
Pours a fantastic fade from brick red to cherry with a thick foamy Guinness-like white head. A beautiful beer. Looks like a foam-topped Shirley Temple. Aroma is roasted malt, a touch of chocolate and I guess beets. Very smooth and creamy. Moderately sweet cocoa with some finishing hops. Easy drinking. Guinness, Old Speckled Hen and this are all cousins. I enjoyed this very much. jrodooo5 (1774) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JAN 18, 2018
Lovely beer except for the flavor! Pours a really cool red w/ a long standing white head & good lacing. The aroma has a bit of a chocolate cake feel to it tho fairly mild. The flavor is nearly nonexistent but the creamy mouthfeel on the palate is quite nice. There's a touch of chocolate in the taste but seems to get drowned out by a touch of hops & just watery in general. Disappointing considering they got most of the aspects right! scarletfire65 (1558) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2018
Bottle at home, all alone. Interesting beer. A clear, pink stout. Doesn't taste like a stout. Creamy with some coffee and chocolate notes. Drinkable beer but don't call it a stout.
