I had the pleasure of drinking this unassuming beer at the Single Cut taproom recently. I believe this to be one of their sleepers. If I'm not mistaken it's one of their longest-running offerings (since day one maybe?) so while you don't get the buzz and hype that a seasonal might bring, with Dean Mahogany Ale you're just getting a solid, hoppy, delicious amber.

It looked great in the glass. Quite literally mahogany in color with a cream-colored head.

The aroma was wonderful, almost surprising. I can't explain it, I felt like it should have smelled toasted or something because it's almost a dark-beer, but it was a bit fruity if that makes any sense.

It's always hard for me to describe mouthfeel, unless I experience something truly offensive it's just not something I'm very good at determining. This beer was pleasant in my mouth, it was smooth and served at the right temperature, so I'll leave it at that.

This is definitely a pint I could drink multiples of, and I certainly did. The Single Cut lineup can be a tad daunting, perhaps even ambitious, but do not overlook this one, I think it's worth serious consideration as one of their best.

Had on tap at the brewery (very cool space, today they're playing customer LP's)

A: As advertised, deep red/mahogany color with off-white head. Excellent lacing

S: Heavy pine and woody malt

T: Semi sharp pine with mild grapefruit. Interesting mix of malt: chocolate, dark raisin crystal, toffee and toast.

M: Smooth

O: Dang unique and does remind me of something I'd drink in Oregon

From 06/28/13 notes. Had this on tap at ABC Beer Company in NYC. 10oz pour.

a - Pours a somewhat clear amber color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Some light lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of pine hops, caramel malts, fruity malts, toffee, roasted malts, and toasted malts. Interesting mix of a lot of malts and some light piney hops.

t - Tastes of burnt malts, toasted malts, caramel malts, light dark fruits, and very light pine hops. Less hops than the nose; pretty average taste.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is smooth and only lightly bitter. Overall pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty average red ale. Some nice hops in the nose but they are barely in the taste. Not my favorite SingleCut beer, wouldn't seek it out again.

The beer comes in a mahogany reddish brown color.

The aroma is hoppy of pine. Crazy enough, it actually smells lots like marijuana. It's very dank, floral, and earthy.

The taste is quite interesting with tons of hops. There's earthy resin, herbaceous, mint, thyme. It's an extremely good combination of caramel sweetness, but also earthy hop profile.

A great beer.

Enjoyed on tap at Brouwerij Lane and another introduction to a new local brewery. Pacific Northwest hopped. A light reddish body, with a little head and lace. Big carbonation. Getting yeast and hops, also a little funky. Drinkable, not what I would expect from the style, still for me drinkable.
