COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imagine if Red Trolley T-boned a semi full of hops. Brewed with an overload of hops and five types of caramel malt, this full-bodied strong ale has plum, raisin, and caramel flavors that are balanced by an aggressive hop bitterness and warming finish. ABV: 8% 30 SRM 70 IBU 22 Plato

Dogbrick (10740) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2010 Sample at the Universal City location. Pours a clear dark reddish-amber color with a thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Rich malty aroma with notes of dark fruit. Medium to full slightly syrupy body with a sweet malty character. Flavors of caramel and toffee along with dark fruit and a touch of hops. The finish is sweet almost to the point of being cloying, with a caramel malt aftertaste. A little unbalanced on the sweet side but still a decent beer.

rosenbergh (9685) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2015
22 oz bottle. Bottled on 11/19/14. Thanks to Timo A! Clear red amber color with a small tan head. Berries, sweet dark fruits and mild hops in the aroma. The flavor is sweet hops, dark fruits, strawberry, grainy malt and mild bitterness. Quite balanced but not my favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (9207) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish pour with thin off white head, aroma brought big caramel, toffee, red fruit into some slight pine, spice, almost a rye note into some earth, slight herbal notes as well. Taste was a mix of red fruit, touch of orange into caramel, toffee, some toasted bread into herbal, grassy hops, finishing slightly bitter, dry.

slowrunner77 (8999) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 27, 2015
I wouldn’t say the hops are aggressive at all, but a nice suped up version of red trolley. Big in body without being hot.

olio (8742) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2015
65 cl bottle (8.5% abv) @ Timo A. BBE 19.11.2015.
Pours clear amber color with a small head. Very nutty and bready aroma, sweet caramel malts and resinous hops, some pine also. Sweet caramel malt flavor, nuts, subtle coffee notes, toffee and resin. Sweetish, full-bodied, tasty. A bit Bock-like. Definitely better than the Red Trolley Ale, more balanced.
