Beautiful dark amber toffee colored ale. Huge head on the pour maintains a half finger of froth throughout the drink and blankets the glass in rich, sturdy foam.
Toasty wheat and rye aroma, lots of malt character. Piney, earthy hop tones. Exceptional balance and plenty to savor in the nose.
Flavor is malty, earthy, piney, toasty, spicy and sweet all at the same time without anyone getting out of line.
Sturdy medium to full body. Plenty of lively bubbles spread the flavors around well.
Finishes semi dry from the hops with lingering malt texture.
As far as amber ales go, this is about as good as it gets. Tons of depth and complexity with perfect balance, great appearance and feel.

On Tap at the Brewery
A - Dark reddish/brown with an one-finger tan/beige head. The head takes a bit of time to diminish leaving long lasting streaky-white lacing down the entire glass.
S - Plenty going on here - Toasty/yeasty malt with hints of grapefruit, pine, and dark caramel. There are also some earthy notes in there that I couldn't quite put my finger on.
T - Sweet and dark caramel malt right off the bat. The taste finishes with just a touch of hop bitterness to round things off and make you want another sip. Very balanced with no one taste taking the lead.
M - Medium carbonation and body. Full flavor but this beer does not feel heavy in any way.
O - This is fast becoming one of my favorite Red Ales. Well crafted and everything is nicely balanced. And the bonus is that the brewery is about 20+ minutes away.
