3.25/5  rDev -12.4%

Tending more to the malty side than hoppy side, with mild notes of sweet chocolaty malt. Poured from a bottle, which yielded hardly any head no lacing at all. Entirely drinkable beer, but nothing remarkable at all about it.

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.
