3.95/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours a deep mahogany with ruby red highlights and a thick, foamy, dense, rocky tannish head
S - Big, sweet, robust dark malt with a grainy floral hop scent
T - Rich dark sweetness with a touch coffee and toasted almond. A very slight peat taste which is reminiscent of a true scotch ale. The hops are citrusy, floral and offer a really nice clean bitterness at the end.
M - the mouthfeel is thick and full with a ton going on but it finishes very clean.
D - 6.8% is too big for a true session beer, but I could handle a few pints of this at home.
This is really a spectacular melding of an American Red Ale with a touch of Scotch Ale flavor's. This brew is really complex but goes down pretty smooth as well. Definitely seek this one out.

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!
