The Solemn Oath guys debuted this beer at the Wild Monk beer dinner so it was really cool to be the first people outside of the brewery to try it.

An imperial Belgian red ale. This was enjoyed on tap, served in a footed ale glass.

A: Pours a hazy copper color with a thin off-white head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thin ring and leaves some minor splotches of lace.

S: Pine, citrus and caramel malts fill the nose initially. There is faint hint of spicy yeasty with hardier bready malts as well.

T: Definite peppery yeast presence on the taste. Nice hop profile with some grass, citrus and pine. Caramel malt sweetness rounds it out with a touch of heavy bread crust.

M: Medium plus bodied with a medium carbonation level. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel.

O: The SO guys mentioned that this was brewed with Abbey yeast which gave it the peppery, yeasty kick was tasting. The addition of the yeast was interesting and it gave the beer a nice layer of flavor that really worked. It didn't have any of those off/soapy flavors like None More Black has.

Served in a goblet at SmallBar - Division.

I have no idea where the name for this thing came from, but it does elicit some interesting mental images... It pours a mostly clear garnet topped by a finger of dark-ish cream-white foam. The nose comprises pine resin, caramel, light earthy greens, and ruby red grapefruit peel. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a bit of toasted toffee for the sake of balance. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, a pretty nice imperial red, with some well-balanced parts, but there ain't much in the way of Belgian-ness for an advertised Belgian-style anything. Kinda disappointing on that aspect, but other than that it's not bad.
