On tap into 10oz snifter at beer run in cville. Eyes are like looking into deep space with a light collar on the head with a few sirrus cloud micro bubbles inside. Nose is malts, subtle coco and coffee characterized by smoked peat. Taste is malt, subtle coffee/dark chocolate up front with a bit of a smoked feature as present in the nose, which as others have mentioned, decays to an interesting berry tartness. Overall, interesting take on the unique fruit stout, and I would recommend to people interested in stouts as i am. Otherwise, prob aren't missing too much passing this one up.

Had at blind tiger in an 8 oz tulip- very dark, nice finger and a half of mocha colored head, modest retention and lacing.

Smell is nice and intriguing- roasted malts, vaguely smoky and a hint of cranberry.

Tastes great- rich roasted malt profile, certainly has some bitterness to it, and a very nice light cranberry flavor. Not intrusive but it's definitely there. Lovely.

Mouthfeel is pretty good- medium full bodied and decent carbonation. A little bit cloying but it is a stout. Really tastes great but leaves something to be desired in other aspects.

Near black color. No head except for the rim bubbles which leave only a couple of spots on the glass.

Dry unsweetened powdered cocoa is the primary smell. A touch of mocha in the background.

This seems like a straight up dry stout. There's a bit of fruity sweetness but it is so subtle I almost missed it. Highly carbonated for the style. Thin bodied.
