look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into Sam Adams perfect pint. Bottled Week 2 of October, 2011.

A - Hazy Brownish amber. Small vanilla head collapses to a small ring.

S - Has a great blend of some earthy/citrusy American hops along with established toasty malt. The malt seems to have some dark red fruit notes reminiscent of a good dubbel.

T - Really definitive toasty bready malt. There is a bit of some roasted malt bitterness throughout the whole flavor. Hops have a really earthy feel to it. Hops bitter finish is right there with the roasted malt.

M - The finish is neither sweet nor dry. I like the backbone of this beer with its full flavored medium body.

O - Has a good deep red color. Great complexity in the nose. The flavor is right in style with those toasty red malts, a little bit too much roastiness. Stylistic American hops. Good full body. This body fits right in line as a good American Red. It's worth mention that I have had this beer in my fridge and should have tried it much earlier.

3.66/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle pours a dark, opaque amber color with a large cap of off-white head. Excellent retention and lace...a good looking brew.

Nose is caramel and toasty malt with a resinous, leafy hop aroma that leans herbal.

Taste is dark, burnt caramel maltiness, almost to dark chocolate levels. The hops are almost all on the bittering side, floral and long-lasting. It tastes pretty old school - old world hops, more bittering than taste/aroma hops and an earthy and char-esque maltiness. Mouthfeel is good, rich and well carbonated. Sweetness is pretty low. I actually am enjoying this, It feels like a tasty throwback to the early days of microbrews in the late 90's/early 2000's.
