4.13/5  rDev +14.4%

Easily the most malty red ale I've ever had... more malt presence than most english barleywines, even. Yet lowish alcohol content. Ridiculous! Based on the first review, I wonder if this is the same beer as there is no floral hop presence whatsoever in the beer I drank, nor anything resembling a tea of any sort.

Dark in color (maroon-like), certainly darker than most reds on the market. Decent white head. You'll notice the high malt bill as soon as you raise the glass to your lips. I thought I detected a bit of coffee in the nose as well, but that just more roasted malts. There's a lot going on in the taste as well, with the central backbone being sweet malts. But not cloyingly sweet as some malt bombs can be, there is a good roast balance going on which explains the darker color.

Overall quite enjoyable, and a nice counterpart to some of the hop bombs on the guest tap list. Also blended well with hop gun to create a nice american red.

Shared by preismj, big thanks Matt! Pours a deep clear copper with tan head. Nose is initially pretty hoppy for style with notes of erthy and pine bitterness. Then comes a big time malt presence with heavy caramel, toffee, and a hint of roast. Taste is a touch hoppy up front and develops into a nice malt bomb. Plenty of caramel, bread crust, and toffee on the palate with a dry bready finish. Mouthfeel is moderate with appropriate carbonation. A nice Irish Red!

Notes from 7/2012

Slightly hazy deep amber, a bit more intense red than a typical amber. Quite fruity in the aroma and taste. Only a slight hop tinge on the front end of the taste, but malt quickly takes over. Some caramel malt present. Pretty tasty, but nothing too special. But I seem to only like hoppier ambers.
