Appearance: crystal clear dark mahogany color with a 1/4" head..

Smell: caramel, bread, and some fruit sweetness comes through to the nose.

Taste: bread, caramel, ripe dark fruits, and a moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. light crispness throughout with mild dryness late.

Overall: this reminds me of a hoppy imperial red ale. Good drinking, but one may be enough in a session.

L: Mahogany, ruby red brew, slightly opaque, tons of carbonation apparent. Nice head, settles down to a thick film that lingers. Leaves some lace in the glass
S: Light aroma, rather fruity like cherries and sweet. Toasty malt notes present. Notes of caramel.
T: Very balanced. Caramel flavors, some dark fruit flavors, cherry, raisins, some chocolate and caramel flavors as well. Very smooth as well
F: Light, frothy, and smooth. Balanced. Medium carbonation adds a crisp quality. Not dry at all.
O: Super solid brew. Haven't had it in awhile, glad I revisited it.
