3.33/5 rDev -14.8%
8.5% ABV per the label.
Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, toast, caramel, and dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet caramel and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a nice caramel and fruit presence in the smell, but the taste is super malt forward in my opinion.

Appearance: Nice deep red color, okay head.
Smell: Big caramel in the nose.
Taste: Sweet and malty, with hops punching in mid-taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium body.
Drinkability: Smooth and balanced. Off The Rails is my go to beer for something with big malts and then some big hops.

A: Pretty slightly hazy reddish amber color. Not a lot of head. Basically just a thin ring of off white head around edges. There is carbonation but its minimal.
S: On the nose, it's mostly really caramel and toffee like malt. It's almost barleywine like initially. Some toasted breadiness. Maybe some soapy pine behind that.
T: Tip of the tongue, some bitterness. A piney hop flavor there. Then it gets into the red ale like character. Really malt driven. Getting that toasted breadiness that I smelled. Then the caramel and toffee and biscuit.
M: Full medium body.
