Pours a dark red brick/amber color. Pour creates a dense, tight light tan head with superb retention throughout. A good amount of lacing curtains the sides of the snifter. Terrific aromas of roasted malts, toasted bread, brown sugar and caramels initially shows its sweet side. Aromas show, as does the flavors a great balance with crisp hoppy citrus, spice and floral notes from the hops also filling the nose. Mouthfeel is full, round and smooth with a bit of oiliness. Flavors start sweet much like the aromas with caramel malt, toffee and brown sugar quickly followed up with a firm but moderate hop bitterness with citrus and pine coming through. Definitely one of the most balanced bigger amber ales in the market.

Clear dark amber pour, thin tan head. Malt and hops in a tug of war for the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is big roasted malt footprint, sweet caramel notes, toffee lurking at the edges. Finish leans sweet, but there is still some piney kick there.

Barnacle_Ed (47) - Milpitas, California, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Bottle to glass. Deep murky red with white head. Pine, earthy malt, bread, caramel, and some sort of light fruit I can’t quite put my finger on. Persimmons, maybe? Oily mouthfeel, bitter finish, and pretty heavy. One to enjoy slowly.

Nice hoppy bitter after taste. Tinges of malty caramel complements the hops well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22FL OZ ($5.99) very good flavors here. worth it and then some. so far bear republic has been very good. The red is not over powered but you can distinguish the levels of flavor. slow drinking is the best for this.

Brentv (533) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Pours from bottle a hazy red brown with a very thick off-white pillowy head that sticks to the glass in clumps and doesn’t fade until the bottom of the glass, and even then, retains a bit of its head. Aroma is a rich malty caramely sweetness and the taste follows the same. Some hoppy bitterness, but the malts win the day here. This is almost a barleywine. Full mouthfeel and bittersweet finish.
