On tap at Belly in Santa Rosa. Rich smell, malty and hoppy. It was very smooth despite the 10% abv. One of the best reds I've ever had. It was semi-clear, bold red color.

It went terrifically with pulled pork sliders. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

bomber into a snifter.

pours a deep dark red and is fairly flat. very small head. the smell is definitely big on the hops..but it has a good amount of malt presence too. the taste is just okay. its not that sweet or too bitter but the flavor profile is just average. big on pine. not that drinkable as the ABV is too apparent. higher body with low carbonation.

overall just an okay beer. id pass in the future
