3.3/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The beer pours a rusty, dried blood red with a wispy tan head that fades quickly, but keeps a thin blanketing throughout drinking. The nose and taste are all malt and NO hops or spice. There is big upfront caramel and a slight bite from the alcohol. The aftertaste is slightly tangy and bitter, but it's way overpowered by the malt. I
t's still a pretty drinkable beer while waiting for food...Probably would pass on this beer in the future.

Serving type: on-tap

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.
