A: It poured a hazy deep amber...1/2 finger head

S: Boozy, butterscotch, weak hops - uninteresting - and oddly day-old lawn-mower bag?

T: Just not doing it. Bitterness yes, but very direct and one-dimensional. Unbalanced, really lacks finesse of any kind. In your face, but not in a good way here.

M: Medium. Little heavy for my liking - gets cloying with the sweetness.

O: Disappointed. Won't be returning to this one.

Bottle shared by Bobby.

A: The beer pours a dark amber color with a finger of off-white head.

S: Horrible, horrible nose. Butter and booze are prominent and there is a ton of sweetness in the form of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. Some piney hops and a bit of an herbal note to it as well.

T: The flavor starts off with a moderate bitterness from the piney hops and some citrus peel. But, there is a lot of butter and sweet caramel and toffee.

M: Medium to full in body with a medium carbonation.

O: Just too buttery and sweet...blech.

Bottled two days ago.

Cherry red ale with a finger of fleeting off-white foam. Smells astringent and sharp with an acetone, boozy, sweet and chemical nose. Not getting the hops I expect from Laughing Dog.

Taste is sweet and fruity/estery. Has a slight flavor similar to the nasty flavor I get from DFH hi gravity beers - sour artificial grape and paint thinner. Although more subtle and more tolerable in this beer than in the DFH. Thin with moderate carb.

I'm not satisfied with this one. Glad most of it gets shipped out of the area.
