3.81/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Dark copper, cloudy, with a faint off-white head. Nice lacing.
S - Caramel, honey (?), toasted malt. Overall pretty faint aromas, but it was served colder than it should have been. Not unpleasant, just not particularly compelling.
T - Nice balance of malts, yeast, burnt sugar, rounded out with some hops bitterness. Very pleasant.
M - Crisp, medium body, high carbonation. I enjoyed the mouthfeel, others might find it slightly too carbonated.
O - I would say this is a very balanced red that is greater than the sum of its parts. Would definitely drink this again.

2.7/5  rDev -24.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Poured from 22 oz. bottle into tulip. Appears to be hand bottled. Has the classic "homebrew cap"

A: Pours a deep copper with a smallish 1 finger white head that sticks around.

S: Lots of malt in the smell. Slight bitterness from the hops.

T: More malts in the taste. Cardboard. Skunky hops at the end.

M: Watery and thin. Lacks carbonation.

O: I'm disappointed with this beer. I had the CEO stout from Right Brain and thought it was pretty good. This beer just lacks in every area. I'll probably try their others in the line up. Maybe I got a bad bottle. But I cant see myself buying this one again.
