I am a big fan of Karben4 Brewing, but not of this beer. It is a little bit overwhelming; and not in a good way. Very sweet, yet unpleasantly bitter.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter. A deep brown with amber highlights and 1.5 finger off white head. Nice collar and some lacing on the glass. Big notes of toasted bread and caramel along with a nice malty aroma. Savory with some soft chocolate and toffee. Starts off with a big malt caramel and toffee flavor. Has nice subtle touches of biscuit and toast coming through, even a touch of chocolate and dark fruit. Feel is medium and creamy. K4 made a nice malty red ale to sip on any day of the year.

A dark red/almber colored beer poured on tap at the Karben4 taproom. Not much head, very little lacing. Smells like chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, fig, and overall sweetness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin, almost pilsner-like. Very drinkable, but not very flavorful. Roasted malt finished, caramel/chocolate undertones and earthiness throughout. Nothing special, but solid as they come.
