Bottle from Four Seasons wine and liquor. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave a lot of lacing. A bit of roasted malt on the nose. Not much on the tongue except some cranberry tartness. Finishes clean. Kind of boring especially considering the brewer. miquelcrush (2053) - Granollers, SPAIN - MAY 5, 2014
Cervesa amb tons a fruites vermelles ideal per combinar amb xocolata.
Cerveza con tonos a frutas rojas ideal para combinar con chocolate. ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 13, 2014
Aroma: More berry than I’ve ever smelled in a stout; almost reminds me of "foreign" stouts with high berry esters. The tartness from the cranberry is very apparent; chocolate/roast and other stout characteristics are muted, but present. Appearance: Pitch black with a skin of bone, patchy head. Flavor: Very tart cranberry with a chocolate/light roast background; a "wild" stout if you will. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: As others have noted, I would’ve liked a little more malt background, but this was enjoyable nonetheless. Maybe the ultimate warm-weather stout. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 11, 2014
@ Hyde Park Wine and Spirits / Cincinnati OH --- Clear very dark ruby brown color, head drops quickly to a cover, dots of lace. Taste is light malt that cruises quickly through the palate to a sour cranberry finish. Pretty simple, almost a lambic in style. Not complex, but very drinkable. gwillrich (152) - São José dos Campos, BRAZIL - APR 6, 2014
Cerveja escura que possui aromas e sabores tostados e um gosto frutado, ácido. É uma cerveja leve, que harmoniza com sobremesas de chocolate e frutas vermelhas. Interessante.

Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 3/22/14. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of cranberry and metal with a bit of roastiness. Malty and roasty flavor with tart cranberry before a roasty and metallic finish. bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2014
750 ml corked and caged bottle, back label says 6% ABV. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours very dark brown with some ruby reddish tints and about an inch tan head. Head retention is decent, and there’s a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like cranberries, roasted malt, berries, and some chocolate. It’s a nice but light aroma. It tastes mostly like tart and sweet cranberries/berries, along with some chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of wood. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s smooth and easy enough to drink. I thought it was a decent enough brew, but I guess I was just expecting this to be better. Still, it’s worth a try if you’ve never had it before. Maverick34 (3304) - New York, USA - MAR 3, 2014
