Rating #333, that’s halfway to the sign of the antichrist. Scary. I’ve also had a lot to drink. Clear amber color, solid white head. Aroma of bread dough and wet socks, but in a good way. Taste is like Ovaltine on rye bread. Tasty.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
A: The pour is amber in color with a finger of khaki colored head. S: A very toasty aroma. Lots of sweet, toffee and caramel malts with plenty of toasted malts. There is a touch of fruit to the nose and a bit of hops in there, but they’re pretty faint. T: Quite a pleasant flavor which consists mostly of sweet and creamy caramel. Plenty of toffee and toasted bread are there as well. Malt driven, certainly, but there is just a very light hop flavor and bitterness. M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: A pretty decent Irish Red. The malt character really stands out and gives a good flavor to the beer.
