look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: pours a cloudy burnt reddish / orange color with a wispy surface foam that seems to last a while.

Smell: caramel and earthy hop aroma comes through to the nose.

Taste: caramel, bread, some ripe dark fruits, a moderate pine and bigger earthy bitterness. Alcohol is mildly noticeable.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy in body. Lightly crisp to start, smooth and very dry at the finish. Aftertaste is long lasting as the bitterness and caramel linger in the mouth.

Overall: this beer didn't look that good and the flavors are not cohesive. It got a bit better as it warmed, but overall this big red ale left me wanting more.
