A- pours a dark copper brown with just a bit of haze, small creamy white head that reduces quickly, leaving a bit of lace

S- sweet and malty with some caramel, just a hint of hop bitterness

T- sweet and malty with a bit of caramel, slightly metallic taste transitions to a piney hop character. The finish leaves a touch of chocolate with some bready malt character and a dry finish

M- medium body with high carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish

O- easy drinking ale, balance seems just a bit off, but good

Pours a fantistic deep ruddy red color with some nice initial head and very nice lacing. Nice scent, malty and vaguely sweet. Excellent flavor, sweet and thick with nice caramel tones, nice malt heaviness, and a great chocolate aftertaste. Goes down smooth, if thick. Fantastic beer!

poured a nice, reddish copper. very clear although sporting virtually no head.
actually had to let this one warm a bit before I really started to enjoy it.
Fruity sweetness in the nose. Slighty bready with caramel notes poking through.
Taste was nice on the palate. Full, well bodied with a nice caramel sweetness and fruity undertones.
