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.

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.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2012
22 oz. brown bottle purchased at the brewpub. Poured into a tulip. It looks dark brown as it pours and almost black in the glass. Aroma has cherries(a lot), a little lemon, and some vinegar but not much. A really good aroma. The taste is strongly acidic in a vinegar sort of way, cherries, and what seems like a wine barrel character. An acetic forward sour. It almost burns at the back of the throat. The taste is a definite dropdown from the aroma. Not really my cup of tea or I mean glass of beer

Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2013
poured deep brown with minimal head. smell and flavor of sour malt, lemon peel, cabernet sauvignon, and wine barrel. Nose had a hint of instant hot chocolate powder. Not my favorite by freetail, wouldnt seek this one out again

Thanks, Geist. Nose is pretty light but is mostly oak and some oxidized malt. Flavor has some dark fruit character along with some astringency. Mild acid.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 13, 2013
murky amber pour, thinnest cream ring head. Nose is stinging acetic with manure, wet earth, and mushroom. Flavor is old and burnt, earthy and musty across the mid, sweetness throughout especially finish, light caramel and more green sourness. Sticky, grainy body.
