Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 04.18.14.

A: 2 1/2 finger head. See through red.

S: Pine, grapefruit, ketchup, malt.

T: Sweet malt, grapefruit, ketchup. Caramel is there too.

M: Creamy smooth.

O: Sweet malt comes on first, then grapefruit, ketchup, and some alcohol burn at the end. The malt turns into caramel which lingers. It was like a barleywine, but with a little less hop presence. The alcohol burn was not as strong as I thought that it would be.

Rating: B
