Little hoppy and malty aroma. Brown color, beige head, very nice lace. Light sweet, malty, caramel, nice hop bitterness, medium body. Not outstanding but still a very nice ale.

12 oz bottle, mug. Creamy, off-white head slowly diminishes to a crown on a deep red-garnet body. Cookie, caramel malt (M); flowery hops (L); peat aroma. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish. Nice peat flavor in the finish, but the flavor seems a bit watered down. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: a little fuller and richer and this would be a rockin beer.

Nice reddish appearance but a very mundane taste.Nothing really going for it -pleasant to drink but boring.

Really liked this one. It has brownish-red dark color, a creamy head. A little bitter in the end, not the it matters.

Pours a good dark red to light burgundy. Small white head that is rapidly disappearing. Smells of soft ripe red fruits, some caramel. Opens up with a nice strong hops presence and a drier caramel malt and some darker candied red fruits. Ends very dry, maybe almost too dry. Light coffee maybe, more of a toffee. Moderate bitterness. Quite flavorful and good medium body, no thining at all. Carbonation leaves quickly with no problems.
