Notes/Commercial Description:
Black in color with a creamy biege head, Red Howes is a stout brewed with 2-Row barley, a blend of roasted malts and 3,000lbs of local cranberries, both Red Howes and Early Black varieties. The finished beer has cocoa, coffee and berries in the aroma and flavors of dried fruit and bitter chocolate with a slight tartness and a dry, lingering finish.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down and left a patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts and coffee are present in the nose.
T: The taste starts out like a stout but then you can taste hints of cranberries—the berries become a little stronger and linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't taste nearly as strong or full-bodied as other Russian Imperial Stouts, but the cranberries make the taste unique. It is very easy to drink.
