4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 It only takes one Floyd to make a superior beer in Oregon. Jamie’s hyper-honed taste buds combined the utmost spectacular blend of ingredients to give a hop head exactly the beer I need. Medium brown-amber hue, sinister lacing head, and ninja kickin’ bitter finish that must be tasted to be understood. Boo yah!

This smells absolutely incredible. Sweet molasses with fruit, similar to a barleywine. Dark red-brown color. Flavor starts out malty, a little sweet, but with a hop that continuously grows to the finish.

22 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas, CA. The aroma is sweet, sugary, and primarily floral. Some huskiness and caramel malt characteristics are also in there. Reminiscent of a nice red ale. Transparent ruddy amber body with a large, frothy, off yellow head that is very strong and leaves great lacing. Starts sweet and nicely malty with a great amount of chewiness. Some choco hints and some more caramel notes. I also detect some peat, too. Finishes with a little spicy hop bitterness. There is also a little tobacco in there, too. This is very smooth and nicely balanced. Great stuff.

Great aroma. Incredibly looking beer with beautiful lacing. Astringent hop bitterness buried in a big, caramel, slightly roasty maltiness.

Strong almost caramel aroma with a very rich caramel, malt flavor with a hint of hops. Strong and great with a beef stroganoff. If strong rich beers are your thing, then you’ll love this double red ale. Well worth trying!

22 oz bomber. Pours a very dark amber color that does not let any light through. Very malty aroma. Very distinct taste, but thats not really surprising since I have never tasted an ’American strong ale’ that tasted like any other. Malty almost porter like taste.Very enjoyable brew.

Poured a very dark red/amber with a particularly thick foamy head. Aroma was pleasant and not over powering. Flavor was very smooth and balanced. A good strong hop flavor, yet enough malt to not be a hop head special. Very good beer.
