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.

Copper with a small white head. Looks kinda like anchor steam in the glass. I just had a flashback to being a kid and watching my parents drink anchor steam and bass ale at the table and what the beer looked like, smelled like, and on occasion what it tastes like. Nose is nutty and grainy. Flavor is malty, less grainy but its still present, metallic finish. Slightly bitter finish.

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...

Into a pint glass. Rusty brown color. Almost a finger of head... quickly gone though.
Smells like wood smoke and a little pine tree.
A little soapy taste, solid brunt bitterness, big malt backbone with a little sweetness to it.
A thicker medium body with low carbonation.
It’s a good beer, but I’m just not excited about it.
