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.

Bottle: Pours a clear deep copper bronze with a stringy-lacing beige head. Has a sweet toasty caramel and tart light fruits with a touch of oak. Starts with good fullness and light carbonation with a decent amount of tartness and dark cherries before a drier slightly puckering finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

CasperSpooks (20) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Pours deep copper red with foamy head that thins out pretty quickly. Vanilla and cherry on the nose, slightly candyish. Tart cherry and vanilla hit you right away. Some oakiness on the front. Very reminiscent of a Flemish red. Like others have commented, a unique beer experience in a good way.

Now that is a distinctive bottle! Corked and caged. Tart fruity nose, raspberry and cherry on oak with a touch of spice and bare-minimum (i.e., imagined) funk. Deep dark blood red pushing to brown with a tan-light brown head. Tart taste with a hint of soft lactic but more acetic. Crisp medium-full body with plenty of carbonation, very minimal bitterness and a spongy wood character into the aftertaste. Cherry kicks razz to the curb but theres a rich underlying maltiness, too, with light black pepper. Balanced and tasty wine substitute, has some heft and had way more alcohol than Im used to for this style, but incredibly, no sign of it here! Wonderful to have Sammy making this, impressed, missing a shade or two of the depth possible in this style (which would net it a 4.5+ for me) but still a very worthy experience.

Cybercat (5241) - Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Malty aroma has a tart fruity overtone and a hint of horehound. Pours a clear, dark mahogany with a thick wheat head. Malty flavor has woody and tart fruity notes, giving it an almost wine-like nature. Smooth texture has good fizz and rather wine-like body, leaving a tart and woody finish. Distinctive, enjoyable, tasty.
