Deep red and moderately bubbly pour. Nicely carbonated.
Red licorice, toffee and roasted malt aroma. Sweet carmel flavors to compliment the aroma.
This is like a strong Irish Red, which makes it worthy!
Sweet malt flavor weighs down the palette, but the drinkability makes up for it.
A very faint grain harshness in the aftertaste.
Into a pint glass, after hours at the office.
The aroma brings me right in. Toasty, bready, scotch and a faint hop smell.
The half-inch head is nearly gone in a few minutes.
With the lack of hops in the aroma I was surprised to find a very good hop presence in the flavor. It starts chocolatly, and malty, but the hops come in and take over along with great carbonation.
It's a terrific balance in my opinion, but then again, I like hops.
