A: Pours to a nice deep mahogany brown coloring with 2 fingers worth of head that dissipates to a nice pillowy head that covers and clings all the way down/
S: Very aromatic. Nice maltyness at the start with some dark fruit esters and leads into a nice floral hoppyness.
T: Nice maltyness at the get go. Those dark fruit flavors we noticed on the nose are now on the tongue. Plum, raisin, fig and dark cherry lead into a nice piney/citrusy hops flavoring and then lead right into the bitterness of the hops in the after taste. Very nice balance here.
M: Medium carbonation works well. Left with a creamyness on the palette and a nice bitter after taste.
O: Not a bad brew at all. Very nice balance of maltyness/sweetness leading right into the hoppyness and then bitters. Very well done brew, would love it try it on tap.

On-tap at Tizley's in Poulsbo, WA. Poured into a pint pilsner. Clear deep red-brown color, nice one-finger head, then moderate lacing. Aroma is deep and inviting--malt, caramel, fruity, with mild floral hops. Flavor starts with malt and caramel, some toffee, nicely balanced, with moderate citrus hops finish. Mouthfeel is medium thin. Overall this is a really outstanding red ale, I really like it!
