Tap @ redlight redlight. This really reminded me of JP Biere de Mars with a strong rye whiskey presence. Gorgeous creamy dense white head atop a red/brown body. Nice lacing throughout. The aroma is fruity, wood, sour, and rye whiskey. The flavor is similar with tannic woodiness, tartness, quite fruity, with some caramel and whiskey. Nice and drying. Very lush in the mouth. Excellent.

Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a dark, transparent, beautiful violet color with a small, quick, beige colored head. Minimal soapy spots mark the glass. The aroma is really nice and complex. Brown sugar and dark fruits lay the malt base, while soured oak notes and vanilla turn things in the direction of an oud bruin. The controlled funk works perfectly with the sour mash whiskey overtone that permeates the nose. Flavors showed more sour brown notes with caramel and dark fruit tannins. Saturated, vanilla tinged oak and smooth, twangy whiskey are subtle, never overpowering. Medium bodied and moderate-plus carbonation, finishing on the dry side. Impossible to categorize, this brew is part American brown and part Flemish oud bruin, all with a wonderful application of the whiskey barrel. Very nice brew.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2008
draft @ redlight redlight Oaky vanilla with cherries, sweet woody aromas. Pours a dark yet clear amber with a thick off white head. Fruity up front with traces of some wild bacteria at work from the wood, hints of whiskey with vanilla tanins, trace hints of chocolatey malts. Very light and extremely easy to drink but still has depth and some complexity. I think this is an excellent beer.

marcus (9133) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 31, 2008
On tap at Toronado. This dark brown ale poured with a thin beige head and a woody aroma. The flavor is a bit sour and fruity with some evergreen notes. Not real tasty.

bb (8539) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Draft. Dark brown/black beer with an off-white head. Nice whiskey, malt, light roast aroma. Whiskey, malt, berry/stone fruit flavor with light roast. Medium bodied. Light roast, whiskey, malt, and fruit linger. Fruiteier than expected. Roast just works - doesn’t quite take away from the beer, but almost does.
