22 oz bottle served in a large Austrian (Ottakringer) stein.
Pours a dark, hazy, reddish-mahogany with a towering and frothy tan head. The head has great retention and leaves gobs of sticky lacing on the glass.
The aroma is quite earthy and spicy, reflecting hops more than the faint malt. The taste is similar although it starts off with a very sweet, malty tone. The rich medium-roast malt flavor is soon balanced by the bitter hop load. Higher ABV evident in aroma after warming but well hidden in taste.
M: Medium body with medium carbonation. Nicely smooth; more like an aged beer in this respect.
O: Gotta say, even though this is a very good beer, I was a bit disappointed with it. But my expectations were high: it looks great and all 3 other beers from this brewer that I am familiar with are really exceptional. Reminiscent of, but not quite up to par with, Rogue Mogul Madness. Still, reasonably priced, flavorful and easy to recommend.

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!
