COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Wild Ale.
And lo, before the brewers of Freetail stood two freshly emptied Port barrels, calling to be filled and their potential realized. “To ze lab!” proclaimed staff Astrophysicist Dr. Klaus von Brandenburgen. For hours the brew team and Klaus brainstormed before it dawned on them that Klaus actually knows little to nothing about recipe formulation. “Das Leben ist wie ein Kinderhemd--kurz und beschissen. I am physicist,” said Klaus as he walked away. Left to their own devices, the brew team developed Double Red Rooster, which eventually went into barrels and transformed into this tawny, rich brew with hints of tartness. Es ist noch nicht aller Tage Abend. Ingredients: 2-Row, crystal, melanoidin, special B, chocolate and honey malts; peak alpha hops; top-fermenting yeast; natural, limestone-filtered, Edwards Aquifer H2O; last-minute inspiration.

On tap at the brewpub. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of dark fruit and cherries, as well as some toffee malt. The flavor is quite funky, with some leather notes to go along with some barnyard funk. I also get some tart cherries and tart grapes, as well as a hint of sweetness from the toffee malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Deep amber with a cream head. Nose is light vinegar, tart, sour, wood, and sweet. Great on the palate, sour, tart, acidic, wood, delicious.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Dave for the pour! Clear dark red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of tart fruits, hints of oak, slight vinegar, hints of caramel. Taste is a mix of tart fruit, mixed caramel, toffee, touch of oak, slight caramel, finishing fairly tart, slightly bitter. Tasty.

Bottle 65 cl. Pours a clear, orangey brown with a rich, creamy and lacing beige cappuchinoish head. Tart balsamico aroma, combined with some sweet vanilla oak. Medium-bodied, caramel initially but then a complex tart red wine balsamico note sets in. Not bad if not the most complex of its sort. 081114

llcooldave (1118) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours like a nice black cup of joe in color with a bit of a soapy head. Slight aroma of soil and clay. Nice tangy sour on the palate that finishes dry. Overall a solid brew...

Sample from 65 cl. bottle. Dark, amber colour with a lighter tint. Lightly tanned head. Sour aroma with lemons, wood, fruits. Taste is sour. Some acetone. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes sour with lemons. More acetone. Lovely paint thinner - I enjoyed it.

Dark and barrely; dates and other dark fruits blend with a strong port wine kick. Healthy amount of sourness before finishing oaky and dry. Another tasty sour from Freetail.

22 ounce bottle thanks to Errl. Pours a darker copper with no head of foam. The aroma is sour and tannic with big vanilla and oak notes coming through. Not hugely sour, but there is a slight tartness here.
