look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Red ale with decent head retention. very clear and plenty of carbonation.

S: Slight waffle syrup with caramel notes. The alcohol comes through in the smell somehow.

T: bitter more than sweet, and plenty of dry hoppy flavor.

M: very dry and slightly soapy in the wash.

Quaffable but only for the right price.

Serving type: can

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear, deep reddish-brown, with a large, cream-colored head, which retains fairly well. Thick Belgian-like lacing adorns hte glass walls. The carbonation is moderate, with some small streams of slow-rising bubbles.

Aroma: Lots of toasted malts, dark bread, and caramel. The hops are rather faint.

Taste: Lots of roasted malt at the open, followed by a little caramel and toffee. As the taste progresses, it segues towards dark bread. There is a slight burnt note at the finish, and a very restrained herbal hop note.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A pleasant example, would make a nice session beer, although its a little pricey at $7.99 a six-pack.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a standard Pilsener glass.

Serving type: bottle
