Pint can, no freshness date, kind of wish there was in this instance
L - very cloudy, opaque ruddy brown ale with a quick-to-dissipate ivory head
S - fruity, malty, earthy, caramel, bread crust
T - earthy rye, bread crust, caramel, burnt caramel also, spicy, earthy piny hops, some citrus and fruitiness, at times it's boozy and hot making it more difficult to drink
F - medium body, resinous, lower carbonation
O - not crazy over this one. It was ok, but seemed a bit muddled and uninspired.

22oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Pours a woody orange-brown with a nice off-white head. Decent lacing and retention.

S: Mild citric hop - orange, grapefruit - with lots of caramel and buttered bread behind.

T: A heavy, almost smoky bitterness sets in, followed by grapefruit, apple, buttery dark bread, tobacco, caramel.

M: Medium-bodied with frothy carbonation.

O: Has the potential to be a decent, if not slightly boring red ale, if they tone down that astringent bitterness.
