12-oz bottle into New Belgium globe

A - shallow/quickly-receding khaki head over a somewhat murky body of orange amber; high amount of visible carbonation

S - quite malty; caramel, dark fruit

T - bready malts, caramel sweetness, dark fruit notes (raisins and plums), touch of peat

M - slick full body, high carbonation, some alcohol warmth (less than expected from 10.1% abv)

O - Ol' Red Cease & Desist is a decent brew, but many superior Wee Heavy Ales are available.

A clear, reddish-brown liquid...the head is thin. Overall, the beer is unremarkable in appearance. The aroma is a little malty, with some caramel and toast notes. Full in body...it hides it's ABV. The brew is a little one dimensional and flat. It could be so much more.

12 oz.

Pours a deep clear brown, light reddish tint around the edges. Off-white film for a head.

Smells of light biscuit malts, hint of caramel.

Biscuity malt flavor with a hint of caramel sweetness. Some light cane sugar sweetness too.

Medium to full body with tingly carbonation on the tongue.

A descent high abv ale with a good malty flavor. The worst I can say about it is it is a little boring. Hides its strength, goes down easy enough. If you can get it for the right price, it's worth trying as a money-to-abv value. Otherwise, there are better beers and it's not really very true to the style.
