3.19/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

On tap at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

Pours a fairly light brown, with some red tinges. Not much head or lacing. Doesn't look very stout-like, honestly.

Smells like cranberry, sugar, red wine, and a very small amount of chocolate.

I'm honestly not getting a whole lot of "stout" in this one. Slightly tart cranberries, with some sugary fake cranberry juice flavors, a small amount of sweet malt, and some chocolate. Not a whole lot of typical stout flavors, including any semblance of roasted malt. I'd be hard pressed to call this a stout, honestly.

Light bodied, medium carbonation, somewhat drinkable.

A bit of a disappointment. Only a stout in name, more of just a straight up fruit beer (that's not even that good in that regard)

3.35/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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.

Light Brown with a red hue, Little head, little lacing. Roasty aroma with some berry sweetness and cranberry. Taste is sour, some roasted malt and sour/bitter cranberry taste. Palate is a bit thin for the style and more carbonated than i would liike. Overall I liked the sour taste but everything else was average.
