12oz bottle. Couldn't find a bottle-on or enjoy by date. Label is incredibly uninformative, something this brewery seems to have problems with.

A -- Standard pour delivers a finger and a half of light khaki head which dissipated within a couple minutes. Trace, free-floating carbonation. Color is a rich burgundy red, truly beautiful. Lacing clumps and is substantial.

S -- Sweet bready malts dominate the nose. Dark candy fruits. Hints of fleshy tropical, non-citrus fruit around the edges. An impressively sweet and accessible nose.

T -- The malt delivers upfront with sweet biscuit, molasses bread, and black cherry. Initial impressions are of some heat. The mid palate contains the very restrained hop flavors of acidic orange and faint pine. The aftertaste is powerful, lingering, and reminds me of a cranberry malt muffin. The beer is slightly hot for only 6.5%.

M -- The body of the beer is heavy and round. Carbonation is low but not under representative of the style and is active enough to keep the palate alive. All in all the beer carries the sweet malts flavors very well without becoming too heavy or syrupy.

O -- A very impressive red ale. Unusually the hop characters of the beer are largely confined to the mid palate while the malt owns the rest of the beer. Also, dark fruit character like this is usually limited to much heavier styles. The mouthfeel is simply spot on for the style; it's equally easy to heartily swallow or sip and contemplate. The obvious knock is the unusual amount of alcohol heat present but this expression of the style clocks in around 1% or so higher than most.

New Mexico, to Tempe, to Orange County. I didn't realize that I had bought two bottles (one from two different stores) when I brought my $120 beer haul to California. Here's 12 ounces, and on to the beer:

Red...dark red colored. So dark that it looks crimson. A low head is formed on the head with just a few dots of lace sticking to the glass. The aroma at first has a touch of dry cardboard. Much of that clears up and underneath comes a pleasing hop aroma, pine, esters, passionfruit, and toasted sugar in small doses. Complex indeed. More hop forward than malt is the aroma, so there is some irony to taste a beer that's more malty than hoppy. Malty, fruity, toffee. Soft hop leaves and tea help diversify this red ale. Somewhat bitter like many IPA's, but sweeter. A bittersweet flavor lingers in its aftertaste of this medium bodied, low carbonated beer.

Yes, I like this one. Now I'm glad that I "accidently" bought a second bottle :-)
