jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Pours a deep deep ruby red with a small white head and good lacing. Smells heavily of toffee/caramel. Very sweet on the nose. A little bit of an earthy smell as well. Maybe a little pine. Allergies are acting up a bit today so my nose feels a bit off. Sweet caramel malts smack the palate at first, but it rounds into a good piney bitterness that lingers on the tongue. I thought from the smell this may be too sweet, but even though the caramel is strong the hops do a good job balancing to prevent it from becoming cloying. Medium-high mouthfeel. A bit sticky but the finish is still somewhat dry though with medium carbonation level. Picked this one up on a whim while in SD and had never heard of Drake’s before but love reds. Not the very best I’ve had, but a solid example of the style.

larsga (7292) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2013
Huge beige head lasts forever, blocking access to the actual beer. Clear brown body with carbonation. Roasty dusty lacquer aroma with spicy caramel notes. Dry, and faintly sweet, wooden lacquer taste with spicy earthy resiny notes. Mid-to-light body. Mildish, kind of flat mouthfeel. Dry earthy resiny spicy aftertaste with lacquer and pine needle notes. Nice, interesting, full of character. (0.65l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Label said 7.0%.)

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Ruby red pour with a solid, firm two finger beige head. Nose shows lots of hop resin, some tropical hoppage and heavy toffee malts. Stewed fruits and caramel front up in the taste with reoccurring tropical hops and resin towards the back end. Nice. Slightly sweet with some lingering bitterness. Flows well with the soft carbonation. Nice stuff

fletchfighters (1404) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2012
bomber into a tulip Mahogany brown color. Big, three finger head, settled to a solid half finger of light brown head. Half a glass of streaked lacing. Nose is of malt and dark fruits. Slight undertone of citrus. Hops have faded pretty much but a good malty nose. Taste is very similar. Lots of stewed dark fruits, good, sweet caramel backbone and just a slight dash of citrus and pine that builds as the beer opens up. Highly carbonated. Very perky carbonation and lighter bodied considering the malt profile. More hop profile in the mid and back. Touches of menthol in the back along with pine. Sweet, dry and bitter finish. Held up pretty nicely.

This is a dark and roasty IPA. Clear brown with small head and moderate lacing. Very malty aroma with hints of dark fruit. The taste is heavy with malt and raisins/plums. It is crisp on the finish with a nice hop bitterness.
