Give me a burger, and Fascist pig. My wife can call me a fascist pig all day long. This is a big malty red ale with enough hop to balance the taste. Finch's has a more hop forward angle but the caramel malts balance beautifully in this beer.

This is my got to beer for when I want to sip on a beer for a while, watching a game. The caramel malts take the first taste, and the hops dry out the finish.

Look - A constant deep black color.
Smell - Caramel and is there anything else needed here?
Taste - Caramel sums this topic up.
Feeling - Definitely packs a kick to it with the carbonation to a near perfect finish.
Overall - Enjoyed drinking this and some time soon I'll search this out again!

A great beer from beginning to end. Starts off hoppy and ends malty.

Had chilled chez White

A: dark toffee; small head; decent lacing and good carbonation
S: very malty aroma
T: as advertised, very malty and sweet; it approximates to a barleywine style; the hops are distinctive and not frequently seen (or at least not to my knowledge): zythos and palisade

A very satisfying beer, and good as a closer.

Pours an effervescent copper/amber with 2 fingers of cream colored head. Stellar lacing & nice head retention

S: Pears, toastyness, orange rinds & tangerine; plus breadyness & biscuitty malt

T: Follows the nose, toastyness in abundance, along with some wood hops & grapefruit. Pineyness, woody hops, tangerine rind, plus breadyness as this warms. Finishes fruitty, citrussy, dry with a touch of boozeyness, plus pine

MF: Medium bodied, creamy carbonation, great balance

A super solid red, easily the best of the line up I've had so far. So easy to drink, especially for the ABV. A great old school amber/red!
