Deep and dark in appearance with some reddish hues. Deep mocha-colored head that stuck around for a bit. I’m smelling some rich dark and toasty malts as well as cranberries. The taste is a mix of dark roasty, toasty malts and a huge, tart cranberry presence. I’m actually detecting some hops here too. I’m enjoying this beer, though I will admit that I’m a big fan of cranberries.
A tasty offering from Surly – probably not my favorite, but still tasty.
