Aromas are mostly malt focused, caramel, almonds, with some dark, cherry-like fruity notes. Clear ruby with a lasting, beige head. Off-dry and almost salty, with some nutty and woody flavors. Medium bodied with fluffy carbonation, and finishes leaving behind dry, earthy flavors.

Sampled from a bottle. Pours a clear dark ruby color with a thin tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of toffee malts, earthy hops and pale malts. The taste is toffee, earthy notes, crackery malts and a bitter finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

Bottled. In my opinion, it's really more of a brown than a red. Malty, lingering finish.

Botttle. Aroma is nutty and a slight bit of anise. Nice dark red color, with little head. Taste is kind of flat, but with lots of malt, finishing a bit bitter. Overall interesting beer considering its one of only two this brewery makes as of right now.

12oz bottle at the Flying Saucer in Little Rock, AR. Pours a deep brown-red colored body with a thin, creamy, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is nutty caramels with some dark fruits, wet grains, and a hint of earth. Flavor is sweet and nutty caramels with some crystal, dark fruits, and grains up front before a light toast and roast note comes in to help dry this alongside a light earthy bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, this wasn’t bad, but it was unremarkable. Sweeter nutty caramels with some toast, dark fruits, and earth. Eh...
