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.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

A: dark brown to black; full, fine cocoa head; checkered webs of lacing
S: cocoa, coffee, malt, farmyard, hints of berry
T: cocoa/coffee, charred wood, berries, medicine
M: medium-bodied, coating, dryish
O: the farmyard elements reminded me of hay and compost and vomit, while the medicinal notes reminded me why children fight so fiercely against their doses.
