12 oz bottle with a 0034 date....that would be January 3, 2014. Not super fresh, but I think it'll work just fine.
A: Poured into a pint glass. Deep brown/red, clear beer. Lots of bubbles coming up the middle form a toffee colored head that's approximately one finger. It's dense with good retention.
S: Lots of malts and dark fruit on the nose. Bit of alcohol and spicy hops present as well. Pretty luscious fruit, actually. Decent smell.
T: Roasty, nutty malt flavor up front. Pick up some of those dark fruits in the middle. Ends with a slightly spicy hop note along with a metallic twang.
M: Really smooth and easy drinking. Carbonation isn't as abrasive as it looks. Medium body.
O: Reminds me of Lagunitas Censored, but less fruity and a bit more spicy. Pretty average red ale.
