A-Red? More like dark brown. Was not expecting the body to be so damn dark. Dark khaki head really hangs around. Head is frothy and reliable. Good lacing too. ONly moderate light penetration. I am interested.
S-This really comes off as more of a Brown Ale. It even has some Porter elements to it. Roasted coffee and cocoa powder. Toasted dark bread and some respectable citrusy hops. A dark Red Ale. Impressed and surprised by both the nose and the look.
T-Maybe there is a touch of smokiness here, maybe I am completely wrong. Chocolate milk powder, toasted bread and burnt caramel. It all goes together quite well. Coffee and other underlying sweetness. Light grapefruit hoppiness on the rear end.
M-Feels fuller than the ABV it holds. Bubbles are pleasant and noticeable. A bit dry, with subdued bitterness. Drinkable.
O/D-Here I was expecting to like their IPA better. Nope, this was much more unique and just better. A cool take on a very broad style. One of the best brews I had during the weekend.
Serving type: on-tap

This is a very nice looking beer. Dark red / purple clear with 1 finger head and great retention
Smells nice too. Malty, sweet mostly but very nice. I really like the flavor profile on this one. Very nice malty sweet and bready upfront with a slight hop crisp finish. Very well balanced beer. Perhaps could be a tad thicker and sweeter in flavor but overall its pleasant overall. A very nice sessionable beer with flavor and highly recommend. Nothing mind blowing but if its at a pub, I'd be happy to order one.
