2.71/5 rDev -31.7%
Important note: Bevmo was selling this for full price in "seasonals" section but it was bottled on 12/24/13... yikes! Don't be like me, always check that date BEFORE buying/ drinking, folks!
A - Rich, dark and clear red! Healthy foamy head left some nice lacing
S - Sweet, cabbagey, soft maraschino cherries and cream. Perfumy / floral aromas.
T - Confused. Sweet but a little sulfury / vegetably, Slight citrus bitterness but also quite creamy. Images of artificial candy shells comes to mind. Like candied beets or glazed carrots.
M - Fair amount of chew to the body, would be nice if the flavors were more appealing. Moderate carbonation leaves a cream sensation on the end.
O - Beer was too old, not the brewer's fault, I'll revisit this beer when the next batch rolls out.

3.15/5 rDev -20.7%
A: amber/brown/red with a tan head.
S: hoppy like an IPA, but sweeter.
T: again, hoppy like an IPA, but much sweeter, but also reminded me slightly of a porter or stout due to the caramel/chalky aftertaste.
M: A bit too sweet for my tastes, as I'm not a huge fan of red ales, but still very drinkable. Kind of a weird hybrid of ale, porter and stout as mentioned above. I picked up a 22-oz bomber from my local shop for $3.50 on clearance, evidently they've had it left over since February. Not bad at all for that price.
