3.65/5 rDev -3.9%
750ml poured into a Bruery snifter. The brew appears mahogany in color with a yellowish stained cap. A spotty curtain of lace sticks to the glass.
The smell contains plenty of raw oak abruptly contrasted by solvent alcohol and fruity to floral hop aspects.
The taste is harsh with raw oak and solvent alcohol giving way to some fruity esters. It is bitter with pine and grass fading to something more slightly herbal.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is boozy and solvent that goes down kinda rough. While drinking this with friends, someone drew the comparison to bigfoot. While not the same, I can certainly relate. This really isnt a red ale, a classification of baleywine would certainly be more fitting.

a - poured a two-fingers thick dense, creamy tan head into a tulip glass that left great lacing throughout. the body was a dark red almost brown color.
s - citrusy and piney hops with a little booziness.
t - citrusy with some oak. a little hot with a woody and spicy finish.
m - medium body.
o - lots going on with this beer and it doesn't always quite mesh. maybe a little over the top.
