Clear red colored ale with a medium sized tan colored head.

Smells of butter and leather with some toffee thrown in it. Bitter oranges and some tobacco leaf with some sweetness.

Starts out sweet and malty with some English hop. Moderately hoppy and lightly bitter, tastes mostly of leather and tobacco. Alcohol warms the chest. Toffee candy make an appearance.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a very tasty beer.

A: 2 finger cream colored head that settles into a ring which leaves no lacing. Dark amber or mahogany clear body.

S: Very clean. Malty grain, toffee, some alcohol. Maybe a little nutty.

T: Very clean again. Makes me wish this wasn't filtered. Some dark fruit, particularly plum and raisin. Little nutty. Some astringency.

M: Some prickly carbonation, slightly coating with a medium mouthfeel.

O: Its good and on the right path. I wish there was a little more alcohol and it was unfiltered which, in my opinion would have made it a little more interesting.
