Growler fill @ FMcD's,

Pours cloudy reddish brown. Hazy, finger thick light tan head. Bubbly but dissipates quickly.

Smells malty, spicy, and peppery. Hints of dried fruit, cherry syrup, and toasted bread.

Starts off a little too sweet. Nice peppery rye backbone with solid matinees and a hint of hops. Hints of fruit, black cherry, and raspberry. Not bad.

Low carbonation, thin and slick, a little syrupy.

Overall a little bland and underwhelming to me. Too sweet, would have preferred more peppery rye and spicy hop balance.

-can to spiegelau glass. canned 11.17.15. consumed 02.08.16.

A: Cardinal red with orange-ish highlights show a good clarity with a steady pace of effervesce within. Cream, peanut shell toned head is 0.5 inches high and stays moderately. Thin, whispy eyelash lacing.

S: Spicy pine, dark caramel-raisin malt with some apple skin of moderate strength and short stay.

T: Sweet caramel and apple malt. A bit of spicy pine, fresh cypress and a touch of lemon hops. Spicy pine-malt finish.

M: crisp, nice maltiness, sticky caramel.

O: A decent spiciness, caramel malting and average drinker. 3.25 overall says it best. thanks to paul.
