UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Sample at GABF 10/03/2014, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Reddish-amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that recedes steadily. Malty aroma with notes of caramel and fruit. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, earthy hops and ripe fruit. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Tap. Pine and resin hops some what muddled together with a toasted caramel dough. Sweet dough. Booze well hidden. Not a hop focused beer. Okay.

Tap at GLBC April 27th 2013, A stickly chewy beer nice deep red in color, fair hop rate but not enough to overcome.. I thought it too chewy and a touch of alcohol on the palate, not bad but not great.
