Pours a clear, copper color. 5/4 inch head of a beige color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of strong alcohol, yeast, strong sweet malt, strong hops, and hint of citrus. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is a noticeable bitterness from the hops, and slight sharpness from the alcohol concentration. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of smoke, yeast, strong hops, alcohol, hint of citrus, and a hint of biscuit. Overall, a good strong amber ale, almost to the point of a Barleywine. Good appearance, aroma, body, blend, and complexity. My only complaint would be that I wished the feel was not so sharp.

Pours a huge, dense, off-white head that leaves nice lacing. A bizarre aroma; sweet, fruity, almost bubblegummy. Lovely burnt umber color. Starts incredibly hoppy and bitter, but with a rick sweetness. The Brandy/oak is coming through with the malt in the middle, but the bitterness lingers throughout. Finish is lingering citrus rind with brandy and faint oak.

Wow. What a surprise. The smell makes you really wonder what you're drinking. But, from the first sip, this is STUNNING. A GREAT balance and level of complexity.

Pours hazy brown in color with some very light mahogany hues and little light making it through the beer. Head is one finger off-white and retains nicely.

Smell has some rich malty notes forward rich toffee notes along with a floral fruitiness that gives an almost candy aroma.

Taste follows the nose with a rich sweet toffee like malt that persists through the entirety of the beer. Finishes with a mild herbal hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel is relatively thick for a red. Heavy body and medium carbonation give this a somewhat thick feel.
