From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours almost black with a cream tan head. Malty aroma. Flavors of chocolate, licorice with a hop bite.

The beer pours a red color with a tan head. The aroma is full of red malt and dirt. The flavor is full of dirt and earth, as well as some toffee and sugary sweetness. I also get some pine from the hops and some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I am not a fan of red ales and this one was no exception.

750ml from JMFG for FFL payouts - thanks, Jay! Big viscous copper pour with lively carbonation and a raucous, puffy head. Nose of super sweet malts, and enough fruits to convey a somewhat disconcerting tartness. Taste is citrus and pine gone off just a bit, contributing to the moderately infected vibe. Hugely malty and sweet, but with the other flavors it leads to enough clashing that I couldn’t enjoy this one a whole lot.

Bottle at Bob’s - very interesting. Sweet nose, complex taste, malty and dark fruits abound. On the sweet side for sure.

Clear dark red-brown beer. Big pale tan head. Creamy malt nose. Smooth palate with mild fine carbonation. Creamy malt, fairly rich with a streak of dark toffee. Fresh orange hops underneath, not too bitter. Finishes semi dry with a little aniseed alcohol - pretty mild. Mildly bitter toffee and hop aftertaste. Smooth rich barleywine.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt. The beer is chestnut brown with a thin beige head. The aroma offers some booze, malt, toffee, candy, a general sweetness. The flavor is sweet and boozy. Lingering notes of cotton candy, toffee. Some hop character adds a touch of bitterness to balance the brown sugar quality. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Worth a try.

On tap at ccb. Pours a golden red with a thick white head. Aroma of hops, citrus and pine big malt profile as well. Taste is sweet, hop bitterness does not put a dent in the sweetness. Drinks syrupy, like cough syrup. Not my favorite offering

750 ml bottle via trade with smith4498 (I think; this one sat for 1.5 years). Nice big aroma of sweetness - malt, dark fruits, slight alcohol, molasses, and caramel. pour is cloudy hazy mahogany. med. thickness on palate - niiice. Taste is lotta goodness - aroma plus hops with slight alcohol at end; impressive to put all this together! great beer!
