Pours a clear amber on tap with thin off-white head and light lacing on the way down. Aroma of caramel and an astringent pine. Taste is caramel and chocolate malts, dark crystal malt, and a hint of piney hops. The alcohol is well hidden and its easy to drink considering, but otherwise its mediocre.

2/22/13. On tap during RBWG! Clearish amber pour with a small khaki head. A touch of booze in the aroma with bread and caramel. A touch of sweet malts in the flavor with a spice kick and a dose of earthy hops. Not bad!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewpub, RBWG. Pours clear, red-gold with a small, white foam head. Berries and toasty grains on the nose, big sweet flavor with considerable alcohol kick, followed by more berries, lightly tangy fruits, subtle caramel. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Modest warmth to finish with some alcohol flavor, caramel, faintly tangy berries. Not bad. A bit heavy handed.
