Picked this up at Giant Beer Garden & Eatery, enjoyed chilled in a goblet.

The color is deep brown with crimson highlights with a thick sandstone cap with thick lace clinging to the glass. The bead is fine and clarity is translucent. The smell is very good with deep woody and fruity notes with mild spice and slight sweet malt ester with a mild hop aroma which is slightly piney. The malt aroma comes off as dark caramel with a dark sugar type smell.
The feel is very good with subtle bitterness and balance with malty feel in the middle, moderately high carbonation and light alcohol in the feel with semi-dry finish.

This ale tastes full with malt presence and yeast fruitiness with some dried fruit and light caramel elements with mild woody accent and gentle hops in the background. I like how the mild raisiny flavor from the dark caramel comes through with some rum like molasses character too.The taste has some citrus flavor from the hops too which are almost tropical like a ruby red grapefruit near the last taste. Overall this is a really flavorful beer which I was pleased to try ...I wish I had had one sooner since I passed by it before. This is a drinkable beer with great balance of hop and malt flavor.
