Nitro-tap at the brewery

Pours a reddish brown with a fine off-white head about an inch thick.

Smells of caramel and rich biscuity malts with some fruitiness and a hint of oak.

Tastes of caramel, biscuit malts, brown sugar, and a hint of woody bitterness.

Medium creamy body, very smooth thanks to the nitrogen.

A pretty decent BW-like ale with some nice flavor and aroma. The nitro suits it surprisingly well. It's not fantastic but definitely worth trying, especially on the nitro tap.

Serving type: nitro-tap

First had: on tap at the brewery

Deep reddish-brown color with a thin cap of light tan head that retained as a ringet, leaving some soapy lacing on the glass. Aroma was pretty much straight-up malts, moderately roasty, some distant, indistinct fruits. The taste was--you guessed it--malty, very malty, roasty and toasty, and even somewhat smokey, caramel, leather, neutral alcohol, light essence of ripe stone fruits and herbal hops. Medium-full body, somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Yeah, I like a good red ale once in a while, and this one was pretty solid.

Serving type: on-tap

Rude Boy Sessionable Barleywine Ale
25 ounce bottle with 2013 date in the corner
A - pours a red bubbly rich thick head of three fingers that recedes to one finger and stays through the drinking. Looks very carbonated.
S - toasted malts, barley and rye, a bit of fruit, a touch of hops.
T - heavy on the malts but not quite a barleywine. Sweet with a slight bitter twinge. A touch of rye with a fruity aftertaste and slight alcohol burn.
M - smooth, creamy, slick, and not as carbonated as it looked.
O - pretty good but it isn't quite a typical red ale or barleywine but that's a good thing in this case.
