Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep red-amber color with thick billowy head of just off white foam. The head has a fantastic level of retention, very slowly fading to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite massive of a caramel and toffee smell mixed with some lightly toasted malt aromas. Along with these smells comes some lighter earthy and herbal hop aromas, giving a nice balance to the sweet and overall producing a very inviting aroma.

Taste – The taste begins much drier then would have been anticipated from the nose with a somewhat direr, lightly roasted bready flavor. There is just a hint of caramel sweetness upfront, which ends up fading quite quickly from the tongue, but is replaced by a light fruit flavor of a pear and apple. These fruit flavors are quite light however and are quickly overshadowed by some hop flavors coming to the tongue. Hop flavors of a pine, grass and earth all come at the middle of the taste, and are joined by a light floral hop taste at the very end. With all the hop flavors that come to the tongue, the low lying sweet flavors, and the consistent toasted bready flavor, one is left with a more dank hopped bready flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side for a brew of only 5.6 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. The thicker body and lower carbonation create a rather creamy feel for the brew, really accentuating the dank hoppy flavors.

Overall – A fairly hoppy and drier red with a more dank and musty hop profile. While not super refreshing, it is one that I did enjoy and would be one I would go to from time to time when in the mood for something a little danker hopped and yet still rather more moderate in abv.
