Deep red with a dense, cream coloured head. A beautiful and fruity aroma, theres also nice hints off biscuit and toffee brought about by the dark malts. Those dark malts are a big presence in the taste, toffee and molasses. A rrally nice bitterness hit which helps balance the sweetness. The aftertaste and palate are wonderful, the beer just melts in the mouth and allows the hops to linger. Good carbonation and density.

blankboy (6787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
[My bottle (660ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel] Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy along with some toffee, nuts and some light vegetal notes. Malty flavour with a decent amount of hops, alcohol and a very bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good.

cmonster (998) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear, deep red-brown with at good sized head. Excellent retention and lace. Nutty, cereal, barnyard aroma with hint of fruit and resiny hops. Light sweet, medium bitter attack followed by a malty mid-palate. Medium body, creamy texture, and a very long, bitter, dry finish. Well made red ale.

AgentAle (1236) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Aroma is actually pretty subtle overall but you can get roasted malts, caramel, hay and slight clove. Taste is a basic sweet maltiness with an even more basic tanginess. Appearance is a clear dark copper with a thin pearl head that retains moderately well.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Citrus hops and raisin fruity, sweet malt aroma and flavor. Quite a bit of pepper spice, and some tartness in the flavor.

From bottle. Pours a rich reddish copper with a medium thickness off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel and malts. Nicely sweet, some bitterness, easy to drink and delicious. Medium full mouthfeel.
