poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip

A: beautiful dark blood red. great hue, khaki head about a pinky high, dissipated fairly quickly

S: light caramel, light hops, allspice, smooth malt.

T: same as smell, very balanced in all areas. just hoppy enough, just malty enough. a little sweet, a little bitter. nice mix

M:little bit chewy. smooth cold sip with a lingering bubbles with a very slight post-milk flemmyness. haha.

O: good beer, not on of my favorites, probably would not buy again, although i got it in a trade with a friend. if someone offered it to me i would take it but not gonna be waiting in line for it anytime soon.

On Tap at the Brewery

A - Dark reddish/brown with an one-finger tan/beige head. The head takes a bit of time to diminish leaving long lasting streaky-white lacing down the entire glass.

S - Plenty going on here - Toasty/yeasty malt with hints of grapefruit, pine, and dark caramel. There are also some earthy notes in there that I couldn't quite put my finger on.

T - Sweet and dark caramel malt right off the bat. The taste finishes with just a touch of hop bitterness to round things off and make you want another sip. Very balanced with no one taste taking the lead.

M - Medium carbonation and body. Full flavor but this beer does not feel heavy in any way.

O - This is fast becoming one of my favorite Red Ales. Well crafted and everything is nicely balanced. And the bonus is that the brewery is about 20+ minutes away.
