Deep red, and a big frothy head. Bonus appearance point for the cool label. Lots of caramel and toffee in the aroma. Lots of caramel and toffee in the flavor, as well. I get some woody, hoppy flavors in the finish. Thanks to queenholly for the trade!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear medium amber with a small rocky ivory head and drapes of lace. Taste is bittersweet caramel malt that expands through the palate and moves to a satisfying light bitter at the finish. A little heavy, but very drinkable. Trcommended.

Growler. Smells hoppy but has strong Belgian influences. A bit dry. Citrus notes noticeable with the sweetness. A bit different from what I’m used to, but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky wood brown, with a thin tan cap.
Scent is caramel, spice, boozy.
Malty caramel, resin-type bitter flavour....
Rather high alcohol presence for just 7.5%.
Not exactly a smooth one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Defnitely a full-on red ale. Big malt notes combine with an interesting hop bill that isn’t too harsh.

Draft to taster. Looks decent; a transparent copperish brown with off-white lacing. Smells good; a nice balance of hops and malt. Tastes solid; like it smells with a bitter hop profile. Average on the palate. Good beer.
