On tap at Congregation Ale House in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a clear dark crimson-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, dark fruit, spices, yeast, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some interesting aromas and flavors coming out of the blend.
