COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A libertine is someone living free of society’s restraints. Similarly, The Libertine doesn’t constrain itself with preconceived notions of what a beer style should be. Loaded with malts that include the UK’s premium Maris Otter and Caramel 60, and topped off with Rye to impart a distinct reddish hue, the Libertine is a malt-dominated red ale like none you’ve ever had before. It boasts a rich, indulgent body without being overly sweet. Conventional classifications fail The Libertine, but who really wants to play by the rules anyway?

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Full bodied beer, great for autumn drinking. Lots of hops but also malty to smooth it out. Would definitely recommend and drink again!

My favorite Fulton beer. I love these unique fusion brews. Had from bottle and tap at brewery. Prefer the tap. Intense flavors with the great red coloring.

Tap. Dark unfiltered red. Small head and decent lacing. Funky dark fruit aroma. Yeasty dark fruit taste. I liked the balance and slight sourness.

Poured from a 740ml bottle Aroma - sweet cherry smell - almost like a cherry pie Appearance - Poured a hazy think reddish color, very little head - quickly disapates. Taste - Tastes just like it smells, like a cherry pie. Nice malty backbone, but definately not too much malt. Palate - medium-ish body, good carbination with a solid after taste. Solid Imperial Red, would definately try again.

At Fulton on tap, nice dark golden red pour with light lacy head. Sweeter hoppy/malty aroma translates to a nice flavor with rye notes. Alcohol is noticeably present but not harsh.

750 bottle-thanks Jim-retaining tight tan head with trailing lace-dk copper. A-pine/orange, sweet med malt-caramel, yeast. T-orange/pine/spice hops, sweet med malt-caramel/roast, med fruit, yeast. Maybe some homebrew character, but not strong enough to detract.

Sampled this at The Dabbler yesterday. A very pleasant beer and surprisingly easy drinking for an imperial red.

Draft at Fulton Taphouse near Target Field in Minneapolis. Sweetness in the nose. Softly carbonated. Higher alcohol prevalent. Caramel notes with a hint of molasses. A little harshness/pepper in the finish. Nice beer, probably their best to date.

Stopped in to my favorite store south of the river, (Hops & Vines) they are having a beer tasting event tonight. 750 ml bottle color light red/golden. Sweetness in the nose. Softly carbonated. Alcohol prevalent. Caramel notes with a hint of molasses. Noticeable pepper in the finish. Good beer, probably their best to date.
