Brewed and dedicated to the believers of Ninkasi. Rich dark malt complexity is balanced by a plentiful hop presence bringing together perfection in every sip. Who knew believing had so many rewards.

Bottle shared at May Ale Alpharetta. Meld of fruitiness, resin hops, sweet maltiness with light toast. Very easy to drink with lots of flavor. Nice.

MMMMMMMmmmmmmm, reddish amber rambler out the gate! Doffs it’s tiny cream coloured cap to you, "G’day Sir, fancy a guzzle?". Aye, you will do, you will do. Spiced, bread and citrus nostril action and tasting of big caramel, nut and roast malts, pine and citrus acidity. Definitely some business you can feel weighing in your mouth on this fellow. I may not be a true believer but I totally see it’s point.

Semi clear dark dark amber under a thin foamy lacy light tan head.Boozy and bitter aroma with some hoppy resin notes, raisin, nutty caramel, and dark amber sweet malts. The flavor is a little earthy and dry boozy with some candi sugar and leafy hop tones, with a little caramel aftertaste. Not bad just a little hot and earthy.

zoucrew102 (659) - - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle from friends in Oregon. Caramel malt aroma with some hop and piney resin notes. Pours red-amber with a thin off-white head and decent lacing. Starts with some caramel malt flavors followed almost immediately by hops and resin notes. Finishes quite dry with the hop bitterness and pine resin flavors lingering on the palate. Interestingly good red ale.

fiulijn (15378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver
Dark amber color with red-copper hue, clean, creamy head. Nice caramel aroma, a bit toasted and biscuity, and strong hopping. Round and smooth mouthfeel; powerful caramel flavor, skillfully supported by moderate sweetness and marked biscuit and toasted malt; strong bitterness, in balance, and loaded with resins and some fruits; very long final. The relatively contained alcohol content increases the drinkability.
Very well crafted.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown color with a smallish light tan head on there. Nose is slightly toasty and with some slight caramel notes to it, with a fair amount of grain coming through. Taste is slightly bitter, with some grassy and bread tones to it.

Lingering light hoppiness on the tongue. Lot of flavor. Smooth. Good alcohol kick. A good beer. I would order it again

Purchased at Wally’s in Los Angeles, CA; enjoyed while walking the beach in Santa Monica on a gorgeous day. I didn’t take tasting notes, but remember this going down very smooth with rich, sweet malty notes and a huge white head. Pretty good stuff.

Moderately solid orange-brown color with heavy sediment, this hefty red has a sweet, gorgeous nose that’s a beautifully-balanced mix of yeast, hops, and sweet malts. In the mouth it offers a bitter, Belgian-style experience with a slightly gritty creaminess. The aroma is great, but in my opinion the flavor is seriously lacking. It’s also a little too yeasty, although subtly so.

Bulk_Carrier (2309) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 17, 2014
The appearance has a nice rich malty red looking body with a huge lumpy foamy white head that rises above the pint glass and once it dies after a good minute it sinks to a valley of lumpy white goodness. The smell is based around caramel malts with some bitterness but to me it seems like its just bitterness for the sake of bitterness. The taste has some dried caramel malty flavoring - to me this doesn’t really show much in the taste. There is super dry caramel aftertaste that leads to a very dry finish. On the palate, she sits about a medium on the body, and tries to show a sessionable quality that ends up in the end not being as sessionable as one might hope but still not exactly a sipper either. Overall, this is mostly a weird beer that I’m unsure if I can really grasp. For the most part, I think I’d only have again if fresher or on tap.
