Bottle poured into rinsed Stella Artois chalice.

A: poured a thick ecru head with two fingers. deep ruby amber as per style. nice retentions, minimal lacing.

S: some tart fruit, cherries, minor hop notes. Bitter citrus and bitter under-ripe tropical fruit, bready yeast. Oak, vanillan and phenolics. Is this a Belgian or a Red? very complex.

T: Follows nose perfectly. Smooth drinking considering the complexity. Boozy as it warms. Strong aromatic malts.

M: Creamy. minor hop, much strong malt phenolics. bread. spicy and boozy outbreath. Finishes with a very strange metallic note.

O: Interesting, Examples such as Nosferatu are more "hoppy" and, being a red ale, well. The style is diverse and has plenty of room for this example..
