Had this at the brewery two weeks ago. This review is from notes.
Pours a dark, ruby red with bright red edges to the glass. A creamy, off-white head lasts forever, leaving many trails of lace behind. Huge, wafting lemony, grapefruit hop notes mix with a much meeker doughy, nutty malt character in the nose. The taste is a lush one two punch of citrusy, piney, resinous hop flavors. The huge hoppiness is completely held in toe by a great toasty, caramel malt base. The balance is flawless. medium bodied mouthfeel with a light to moderate carbonation.
This is an incredible red ale. Hugely hoppy with tons of complex hop flavors. Big maltiness that never gets too much in the way. This is a must try from this legendary brewery.

I got a growler of this beer from AleSmith. What can I say? Yum? It's one of the best growlers that I have ever had.
Appearance- A reddish brown
Smell- It has a bit of a hoppy smell with some sweetness
Taste- A yummy red with some hop fun added in
Mouthfeel- It's sweet, so a tad sticky
Drinkability- There is little taste of alcohol. It has a yummy flavor, so quite drinkable.

Pours a clear deep amber color with a light taupe head. Sweet grapefruit leaps from the glass into the olfactory with some rich, sweet butterscotch that underlies it. Mouthfeel is light to medium-bodied with a bit of a carbonation scrub developing midway. Flavors are like a Milky Way bar with a tart cherry on top. Fine effort.

Great fake blood, grade B molasses appearance.
Nose is dried black fruits (raisins!) and Christmas trees.
Flavor is wonderful: candied orange peel, maple syrup, hoppy with a great bittersweet finish
Very good, but you can't have more than 3 pints. A) IT starts to get very heavy B) You'll be hammerwed... which isn't a bad thng, but you'll stop appreciating this kick-ass beer.

Poured into a nonfiction tumbler from a 22 oz bottle- pours a clear mahogany color with two fingers of head, great retention and nice splotches of lacing.
Smell is pretty piney as well as some caramel and bread.
Tastes great like everything else from alesmith- like a previous BA said, it's a little sweet up front, followed by pine hops and a little bitterness, then rich caramel and bread notes. Finishes sweet.
Mouthfeel is great- medium to full bodied, modest carbonation. This is a great beer that's not radical but supremely drinkable. I will get it again.

Picked up two growlers of this at the Speedway Stout release.
Pours a dark rich red with big fluffy off-white head, hits you with a big burst of american hops backed up with sweet malty aroma behind it. Great hoppy burst in the mouth, though well balanced with a thick malty backbone. Highly drinkable, with a pleasant citrusy hops aftertaste. A great beer from alesmith. this one is quite different from past years, seems to be getting darker with higher ibu's as the years go by.
