Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a nice mahogany color with a white head. The head faded relatively fast to leave a persistent film on the top of the brew with some moderate lacing.
Smell – The smell was largely of roasty malt with some toffee and caramel sweetness.
Taste – The taste is very similar to what was detected in the nose. There was a roasty malt flavor up front. Some sweeter flavors of toffee and caramel develop in the middle of the taste. These sweeter flavors persist, but toward the end are again dominated by a more roasty flavor which lingers on the tongue well after the brew is gone from the mouth.
Mouthfeel – Creamier then the average beer of its strength with a lighter to moderate level of carbonation. The body feels nice on the tongue and allows the roasty tastes to really permeate the tongue.
Overall – Easy drinking and affordable. It is somewhat one-dimensional, but overall makes for a good session brew.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.
A: Pours a deep ruby brown with a mild off white head. Dissipates in a minute or so, doesnt leave much lacing.
S: Chocolate malts come to mind when I smell this beer. Nice roasty quality to it. Dark fruits also come into play.
T: This beer comes across as a malt forward, roasty red ale. Hops take a back seat as the malt dominates the profile. A pretty sweet beer. Touch of a metallic taste.
M: Medium body with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. Finish is clean enough to keep this sessionable.
Overall not a bad beer. Lots of good malt flavor going on. Give it a go if your into red ales.
