Damn good for an Amber red. Clear garnet pour nice white head. Mellow malts with some toffee. A hard beer to appease the big players in RB world but appreciate this for what it is. Session and great taste.

Draft. Pours deep amber with a thin head. Malty base, light sweetness, faint toasty notes, and a relatively clean finish. Pretty good.

can’t find any info on oak aged chesty, so here it goes for now: sweet fruity notes and toffee and caramel. tastes a little bigger than the 5.3% on the bottle implies. ok overall, really nice for what usually is a boring style to me.

22 oz bottle the ale poured a clear dark amber with an off white head and some lacing. Your nose detects caramel malts. The ale a has a nice balance with hops and malt. The medium body ale had soft carbonation The finish was smooth yet dry. Chesty Puller from a small Virginia town: Saluda.

No real aroma...not bad aroma but nothing there. Same with flavor...no real malts...beer was made well with no infection but also nothing there.
