Pours copper with a large creamy head.
Nose shows raisins, bready malt, toasty notes, burnt figs and spicy hops.
Similar falvours, malty but with a big spicy hoppy hit. Some acrid, burnt figs and a syrupy note before a massive spicy hop bitternes rolls through. somewhat harsh really.
Thick body, could use more carbonation.
Somewhat limited, and not exactly pleasant. Wasn't a fan.

On tap at the cask and vine.
Comes to the table a slightly cloudy medium brow color with ruby highlights and a decent sized off white head. Smells of pine and resin with a solid bready caramel to back it up. The flavor is sweet bread brown sugar and caramel behind some nice resinous pine and grapefruit. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick sweet mouthfeel. Nice red ale that drank a lot easier than 8% abv. Great caramel expression with enough hops to back it up.
