Pours a dark red/amber with a medium off white head. Leaves good lace. Sweet roasted malt and spicy hop aroma.

Mahogany color. Not much nose at first-at it warms, I get burnt caramel. The taste is toast, roasted malts and a oddly enough, butter. Lots of malt, however, floral notes briefly peak through the malty blanket. Not much in the way of hops, although they are there. The mouthfeel is watery. 5.6% ABV. (299 characters)

Reddish amber color. Large head. Aroma is sweet chocolate malts. A medium bodied American Pale Ale (red Ale) Malty and hoppy. Malts are slightly roasted, somewhat sweet and with a very definite chocolate flavor component. Hops are mildly grapefruity and kind of spicy. Very drinkable APA, but not as hoppy as most. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter (391 characters)

An odd beer. Does not fit the red ale style at all. This brewery seems to specialize in hybred, non-traditional interpretations, but this one did not work out as well as other products I've had the opportunity to sample. Poured a brown color, not at all red or amber. Aroma was dark and yeasty - Belgian dubbel immediately came to mind. The flavor was likewise unusual. Slightly fruity, with yeasty phenols. If a Belgian dubbel and a German dunkel wheat got together, this might be the offspring. I checked the brewery website, but they had no information on what they were trying to accomplish with this beer. Not a bad beer - but quirky and not too well put together. (669 characters)
