Very clear, but very dark ruby. Served with a large faded khaki head. Thick foam holds craters from larger burst bubbles for a while. Crisp hops in the flavor. Some candy caramel flavors but not really a sweet beer. Greay balance of flavors without being bland.

Tap @ TacoMac, John’s Creek. Dark copper color, light tan head. Slight bubblegum aroma. Big flavors of toasted malts, honey & molasses. Finishes with a nutty granola character. There is also an earthy honey flavor. Smooth and creamy texture.

Pours a dark coppery red with a tall, long lasting off-white head.
The aroma is nutty malts and bread yeast. Some fruit but little or no hops.
The flavor is sweet and nutty.
OK for what it is.

A solidly good beer, good heaviness, flavor, palate and aroma could drink a couple of these!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Prado. Poured a dark clearish red, with a white head, and some lacing. Aroma is malty and a little roasty. Taste is is similarly dominated by malt, with some bready and roasted notes. A slightly bitter finish gives the beer a little hop to balance. Mouth is pretty well carbonated and medium bodied. Overall, a decent ale.

A deep red pour with tiny cream head. Roasted scent of malts dominates. This stuff is very tasty and just enough bite. I will get more.

Bottle. Made quite the pop when I opened it. Pours reddish amber with a very big off white head. Aroma is earthy, caramel, roasty malt with a spicy hops edge to it. Flavor begins sweet and slightly spicy, finishes almost like a dry stout. Some metallic notes. Good balance. Body is fizzy and a bit on the thin side.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, unknown date. Like the IPA, this pours relatively thick, murky, and hazy, reddish/copper color with a small one finger tan head that leaves some light lacing and holds a small cap. Aroma is heavy on caramel malt, sweet bread, brown sugar, some dark fruit notes, light chocolate, toffee, good strength. Flavor features caramel malts, biscuits and sweet bread, a little dark fruit, some citrus hops for balance, finishes semi-sweet and a bit watery. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, low to medium carbonation. Pretty darned good Red Ale, the aroma in particular is my favorite part.
