4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma is malty, nutty, and a bit citrusy, with hints of toffee, biscuit, and hazelnuts. Mouthfeel and taste begins creamy and sweet, and finishes with a long sweet, bitter, and slightly astringent aftertaste. This beer is much more complex than I remember it being. Pretty great!

Pours a nice dark copper red. Aroma is almost non existent. First taste is a bit watery with a sharp, astringent feel. After taste is a bit metallic. I liked this beer at first, but once I really dug into it...not so much.

"pours dark red w/ khaki head. aromatic hops, but a sweet Carmel malt undertone. well balanced flavor reminiscent of red horse and red rocket. good, but not quite as tasty as those 2."

22 oz shared bottle.
Nice clear red-amber color.
Rather ordinary aroma but a very rich flavor with enough hop balance to leave a mildly bitter finish.

The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours dark red with a cream head. Aroma is burnt caramel, plenty of hops, and more variety of malt aromas. Taste is like a double IPA that sat for a while, but more so. The burnt caramel is powerful in this one, as is the toffee. However, it is not really all that sweet as a result of the strong hop bitterness. This really isnít my cup of beer.

Pours a clear amber red with a nice head. Aroma is roasted sweet malt with some citrus hop notes and spices. Taste follows the aroma well and medium mouth feel. Very good!

Three years living in Eugene, and this is the first time I have rated this beer . It has a very unique flavor, kind of meaty, rich, salty, juicy. Iím not sure I like it, but itís so different I canít stop from drinking more.

Draft at Barcade - Erica, Stiffler, Kayla, Marc. Sat 7/5/2014. Dark dark red/brown, light coffee colored head, one finger. Smells a little roasty and grainy. Tastes ok - gritty, toasted malt, a bit creamy in texture... Short-legged aftertaste which is nice. (Points for sessionability.)
