A 12 ounce bottle from FluffyMcTingle; thank you! Bottled in May, 2011.
Pours a rust, burnt orange, red color with a light khaki-colored head. About two centimeters of foamy bubbles form during the pour, and large strands/patches of sticky lacing cling to the glass as the level subsides. The ruby hues in this one are gorgeous. The aroma is of rye, ample caramel malt, grapefruit, orange, and some faint herbal notes. The caramel really shines through in the nose, reminiscent of a malty amber. The taste is similar, but with an added emphasis on the citrus, especially at the end. The rye is balanced well with the caramel flavors, and some muddled herbal undertones round it out nicely. Mouthfeel is exceptional; smooth going down, crisp on the tongue, and a finish that leaves you wondering if you really did just take a drink. Certainly one that keeps you coming back, and just a great beer overall.
