3.55/5 rDev -3.8%
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.

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.

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)

750 ml bottle into pint glass; bottled on 9/6/2013, 6% ABV listed. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, toast, cranberry, brown bread, light roast, raisin, plum, fig, herbal, and toast/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, cranberry, and fruity/earthy yeast ester notes; with decent strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, cranberry, toast, brown bread, light roast, raisin, plum, fig, herbal, and toast/yeast earthiness. Light fruity tartness/earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, cranberry, toast, brown bread, light roast, raisin, plum, fig, herbal, and toast/yeast earthiness on the finish fora short bit. Nice complexity and balance of dark/bready malt, cranberry, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/acidic mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid fruited stout. Good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, cranberry, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. I was expecting much more robustness from malt flavors for a 6% stout; but it was an enjoyable offering.
