Growler filled up courtesy of Phil Kirk. Consumed immediately.
Beer pours a dark black with a rather large, fluffy off-white head. The intense carbonation and head surprised me (pleasantly) coming from a growler. The smell is 'dark' with roasted malt the primary scent, also some wood, licorice, and root. Taste is pretty much similar. There are some light chocolate and anis flavors, but the roasty, earthy taste is most noticeable. Beer goes down very easily and is much more sessionable than others from RR. This is a fine beer, but not terribly memorable, and not one of my favorite offerings from RR. Very glad to get a chance to try....

Tried this one at the source. Pours brown pour with ruby edges and an off white to khaki creamy head on top. Low aromatics with some dark malts, a little roast, some yeast, chocolate, dark fruit. Very smooth velvety mouthfeel with low carbonation. Flavor is chocolate covered raisins, some yeast spice, very smooth, lightly sweet, no bitter. Pretty solid brew, and seems very similar to Salvation to me.

A: Ruby red with a mocha head.
S: Sweet malt, dark fruit, light fruit, citrus in the nose.
T: Dark fruit, plum, malt, tart fruits, lemon and orange.
M: Medium bodied and smooth.
O: This was very good, but far overshadowed by Pliny the Younger, for which I was there that day. Definitely worth a try, but don't use it on valentines day as a coping mechanism for any rejection that might come your way. If you can, use Pliny.
