Well, I screwed up the pour on this one, so what should have been a magnificent head was kind of under represented here. Color was gorgeous though, like looking through a honey colored ruby.

The smell comes off very sweet and malty. It reminded me of fresh rye bread. Touches of sweentess, it just smells wonderful, but the smell isn't too potent.

When the dead guy hits the mouth he seems to liven up pretyt quick (I'm sorry). Initial strong sweetness, with some caramel, bread, and some fruity esters. Raisins and some kind of berry maybe? It's a subtle part of the brew, but a wonderful characteristic. Quickly though, a big, citrusy, bitter hops spikes through the beer. The malt and hops fight back and forth throughout the mouth till eventually your left with only a satisfied, balanced flavor. One of the most blanaced american beers I've ever tasted.

This beers excellent mouthfeel comes from a nice combination of the hops and a healthy carbonation. For some reason, the bite of the hops and carbonation runs in sync, making the beer literally feel huge in your mouth. More yums from this beer.

A brilliant brew by Rouge, one i'd be glad to quaff any day of the week.
