A: awesome color, deep red, very clear. big creamy head which does not go away
S: smells great too, heavy sweet with prunes and macademia-nutty notes. and toasted bread
T: caramel and toasted bread, then the hops bitterness kicks in and stays for quite some time.
M: silky mouthfeel, low carbonation
O: overall great bear, maybe a bit too bitter to my taste

A) Rocky head fades after a few seconds leaving nice lacing, hazy reddish orange
S) sweet malty aroma, fruits
T) Sweet and roasty malt, resinous, slightly bitter, estery body, metallic finish
M) smooth medium-body, prickly carbonation, long bitter finish
O) Never really been a fan of red ales to date, this one not converting me. Appearance and smell are the high points, taste is pretty good until it fades to the bitter, piney finish that coats my mouth
