Massive cappuccino-like tan head over a hazy reddish brown body. Gobs of sticky, doughy lacing. Gushed a bit on opening.

Sweet nose of toasty red malt, vanilla, toffee, and orange-citrus and floral hoppiness.

Upfront there is a red malt twang with dark toffee that combines nicely with orange citrus and floral notes. Really smooth and balanced, the finish is dry with notes of vanilla, oak, and hop bitterness. A bit of complexity and layers of flavor.

Body is medium and the carbonation is moderate and round, producing a lovely creamy mouthfeel.

This is a really flavorful red ale and at 6.9% is very drinkable.
