4.08/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Serving glass: Poured from tap into Tulip.

Appearance: Somewhat dark red with thick off white head and nice lacing lines.

Smell: Citrus hops and caramel malts.

Taste: Strong slightly sweet caramel base balanced by a nice hop bite with orange, grapefruit and pine. Ends somewhat bitter. A well balanced beer.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, full creamy body with a very dry finish.

Drinkability: Great example of a Double Red Ale. This should be canned.

Enjoyed on draft at the brewery, winter 2010. Rich amber color. Some black tea-like aromas are noted on the nose. Candy sweet on the palate which is nice, along with a nice hop snap to round it out. Rather easy drinking for such a high ABV beer, and I wish it was served in the normal pint glass!

A - Pretty, dark amber, head holds nicely and long.

S - Hops and Deep nice dark malt.

T - Gigante malt, tons of hops follow up.

M - A little too creamy for me and not enough carb bite. Seemingly flatish to my base palate. Velvety, but wanted more conflict.

D - Could get tiresome.
