UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 Very cool, red velvet color almost black. Very hoppy but thick malt body which balances it out with some sweetness. Great on tap at park chow

~Citrusy orange aroma with earthy and floral tones, sweet caramel richness.
~Pours a clear dark amber color with big creamy off white lasting head.
~Roasted bready maltiness with wood notes and floral hop flavors.
~medium full bodied with med CO2, clean balanced lingering hop finish.
~Enjoyable brew. Reminds me of Speakeasy’s Prohibition ale. I think I like Speakeasy a bit better and it is cheaper.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours brown with a red hue, thick head that lasts, and tons of lacing. Nose is caramel malt sweetness with a strong hop presence. The flavor is the same and very balanced. Definitely rich and sweet but not in an overpowering way. Excellent beer!

Bomber---> snifter. Pours a DARK ruby, almost brown with a one finger fluffy tannish head. Smells of caramel/chocolate malts and grapefruit. Taste is a great balance of roasty, sweet malt and a tiny bit of piney hop bite. Nice medium body with good carbonation. This is a finely balanced beer and a joy to drink.

Draft at Creek Monkey. Pours a deep but clear brownish-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops, dark and caramel malts, chocolate, and earth. Flavor of grapefruit, pine resin, caramel, chocolate, soap, earth, and orange peel. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, bitter mouthfeel. Good beer, and seemed really fresh.
