3.1/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark brown mahogany with reddish hues. Small tannish head that recedes quickly and becomes thin layer with minimal lacing.
S: Big malt up front, followed with some stone wheat and other dark bread scents and some slight earthy scents. Also on subsequent quaffs some slight bitter hop scents in there towards the end.
T: Average flavor profile that is dominated by sweet malts, dark stone wheat bread flavors, and a generic dark, dry bready flavor. Some bitter hops peeking through towards the end that display very slight citrus pulp flavors. The dry and sweet malt flavors dominate.
MF: medium light that finishes slightly dry.
Overall: An average amber that displays some irish red flavors. The dry, bready malts become a little too much as it warms.

3.69/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.
