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?

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, dark red pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, dark red fruits, some slight toffee, earth, hints of a spicy hop, touch of grain, pretty much your standard red. Taste is similar with some caramel, toffee, nice red fruits, finishing fairly sweet, slightly spicy, and slightly bitter. Not very memorable.

Autumnal brown with small white head. Aroma is dominated by red fruity esters. Really eatery. Red fruit, a bit tart, a bit of malt. Really odd beer.

Tap @ Northbound. Pours a clear, dark orange with a cream colored head. Toasty caramel, a bit sugary, toffee, herbal hoppy nose. Strong, somewhat boozy, caramel, grassy, herbal, sugary flavor. Pretty strong and sugary.

Sampled on tap at Fulton. Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, syrupy, malty flavors. Kinda flat and cardboardy.

Atom (1340) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2012
750mL bottle pours a clear ruby/brown with a small khaki head. Aroma of caramel malts, rye, with fruits and a slight sour aspect. Taste of sweet caramel malts, rye, grains, dark fruits, with a bitter alcohol finish. It’s almost drinkable, yet nothing special, until the end. Gross.
