Aug 2005 - An okay beer...not what I was expecting. Didn’t appear red like it said on the bottle. Poured and looked like a cola...dark brown with bubbly head which left as fast as it appeared. Taste sort of defied style...almost porter like. Tasted strong of roasted malt with a nice hoppy finish. A little thin. An ok beer.

Respectable. Small head, very dark. Hint of molasses and chocolate. Fullness in the mouthfeel. Very little hop flavor in this bottle at least. Not a lot of depth of flavor, but what’s there is executed pretty well. Smooth and drinkable.

Bottle, from Jon. Aroma of caramel malt, hops, baking soda. Initial flavor is malty sweet and woody, with caramel, brown sugar, and a touch of dark fruit. Finish is dry and a bit astringent, with stealthy bittering flavors creeping in. Maybe it was just me, but I could have sworn a slight metallic flavor lingering in the finish as well. Certainly not the rich finish I desired based on the initial (tasty) flavors. The mouthfeel of this brew is average, leaning a bit thin. So-so overall, but a nice story of a Labrador adds some character to this beer.

Tap at Barcade? I think. (I’m backlogged at the moment) Very deep brown with crimson in the light. The thin tan head stays around. Toasted malt aroma- a touch earthy with some tobacco and thin cocoa notes. Rounded carbonation- could be less fizzy. Dark toasted flavor. Malt forward with some husky bitterness and tobacco notes. Mildly hopped with residual toasted biscuity malt notes. Underwhelming.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 [2422-20090802] Tap. Berry malt toast aroma. Clear, dark mahogany red body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Mild roast malt grains flavour has more fruit in the background. Full body is quite boozy. Average, a little too rough and boozy. (6/4/6/3/13) 3.2

[5322B-20130430] Tap. Not much aroma. Clear, mahogany brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Milky toasted grains flavour has a lingering bitterness. Medium-full body. Interesting, a little rough around the edges. (5/3/6/3/13) 3.0

A nice example of the style, deep red with toffee and hop scent, with caramel and a bit of coffee in the taste and aftertaste.
