This deep red colored ale is full of caramel sweet malt flavors, yet nicely balanced with a smooth finish.

Solid and very drinkable amber with a nice ABV kick. I love picking up a growler of this to share or drink by myself.

on tap-pours a light tan head and dark red color. Aroma is sweet medium malt/some musty/peat/chocolate. Taste is lots of sweet medium malt/some musty/peat/chocolate, a little fruit, some earthy hops bite. Medium body.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Pours dark red with a fine, white head. Flavor is butterscotch with a pleasant hop bitterness. I consider this a good hop bitterness. Reminds me a bit of Leinenkugelís Red.

A very dark red, with caramelized hops set off against butterscotch on the palate.

clear dark red, frothy dirty white head, drippy lace, light dry malt aroma, tart malt flavor, strong woody cherry character, hint of sweetness adds balance, would make a nice flanders red

draft at brewpub - Pours amber with a caramel malt aroma. The flavor is caramel malt with a fairly good hops bite. Thin bodied and very straightforward, itís a quite drinkable brew.

Good beer, if you like malty, sweet, dark beers (which I do). Had a pint after dinner at the Brew Pub and after two pints of the Detroit Dwarf Zwickel. So perhaps it suffered after that excellent brew.

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Pours out a deep reddish amber color with a small head, very little lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is good, but for me its really not my style, sweet in the face malts, being a hop head this was not my thing, but I could appreciate the brew. Would try again if I came across it...got this on in a trade from....Sully I believe...thanks dude

at the brewpub. certainly nothing wrong with this beer. itís DBCís flagship ale, so they canít go out on too much of a limb. after all, they need the mainstream customers who visit on tigersí and lionsí gamedays. caramel and dark malt, and some cascade and other north american hops - otherwise, plain. if you like malty red ales, youíll love this one!
