Poured from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle into a chalice at around 50F.
Pours a beautiful tight head that follows the beer down the glass; lots of lacing. The beer is a deep ruby, nicely clear, with small bubbles rising quickly to the surface. The nose is of malt and earth, with a spicy note. On the tongue, though, the first impression is of a bloody penny; a strong metallic and blood-like character stays with the beer. That overpowers the remaining flavors, which are of malt, some red fruit, and clove. The mouthfeel is comparatively light, about what one would expect for the style but nothing unusual. In quantity, that metallic/bloody character makes it hard to keep going.
