Picked this up by accident, I was trying to grab Ninkasi’s I.P.A. Glad I pick it up though! Beautiful dark red pour. Aroma is sweet. Very flavorful, lots of malts and berries with some chocolate and toffee notes. Worth a try for sure!

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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
