This pours a dark brown with a billowy foam topping. It has a light lactic (milk stout) aroma but one that doesn’t give much of an indication as to how much strawberry will be on the flavor. I like surprises.

This one definitely surprised, in a good way. The flavor has a light lactic tartness to it with a nuanced strawberry sweetness and a mellow roastiness which ties it all together. Creamy, smooth, just enough but not too sweet. I found this really enjoyable. Made it a sipper and it held up even as it warmed. Now can I have another?

On tap at the brewery

A - Pours black with 2 fingers of creamy light brown head.

S - Smells of chocolate, sweet malts, with a hint of strawberry.

T - Taste is similar to the aroma with a great flavor of chocolate, lactose, sweet lightly roasted malts, and of course strawberry, which is more apparent in the flavor than in the aroma.

M - Thin-to-moderate body with moderate carbonation. As this is a sessionable milk stout, the body is not too thick or syrupy, which is great for the low-ABV milk stout style.

O - My favorite regularly brewed beer from Ranger Creek. It has great flavor while still being quite drinkable. I could (and have) knock a few of these out in a row.

(from notes)

Look- Near black, capped with a half-finger of beige foam that sticks to the sides of the glass, moderate amount of lacing.

Smell- Nutty with a hint of fruity sweetness. Promising.

Taste- Starts off with dark malt and a bit of pseudo-citric bitterness before a sweet berry flavor shows itself. Finishes with biscuit and heavy cream. Aftertaste is akin to gingerbread with a touch of pink lemonade, fading to nondescript sweet berry after a while. Lives up to the name's promise, but doesn't go overboard with the fruitiness. Good mix of sweet, roasty, and tart/bitter flavors. Surprisingly tasty.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium body, prickly carb comes out on the sip. Smooth on the swallow. Light dryness on the finish, not cloying or treacly as some milk stouts can be. I'd like it to be more substantial-feeling, but it's a minor gripe.

Overall- Unique and pretty darn tasty. Very well put together. Not something I would pick up regularly, but I'll keep an eye out for it nonetheless. Definitely recommended.
