3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 isn’t 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. I’m not sure I like it, but it’s so different I can’t 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.)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Heavy malts, caramel nose. More on the side of a strong amber ale than a hoppy red. Hops are floral yet subtle. Strong malt presence with a distinctive maple syrup type taste of burnt caramel. Not my favorite interoperation of a the Double Red Ale style but solid brew.
