Tap at OB. Clear garnet with a tiny beige head due to the pour, looks fairly creamy though. Flavor is pretty fruity between the citrus hops and toffee notes. The toffee isn’t scorched, though, which usually makes me mad for this style. Lots of crystal malt in here, though. Also a bit of cotton candy sweetness. Finishes with bitterness at a 4 and earthy, alcohol masked well except for the light burn in my empty stomach. Medium full body with low carbonation that heavies the beer. I do like this batch better than the last. The aroma added a weird slightly unpleasant tang that the flavor didn’t have. 6-3-7-3-14--3.3

Tap at Craftheads event. Aroma is great, berries, spice and bit of chocolate! Taste is good too, prickly but not overly hoppy or spicy. Lots of malt, fruit again, hint of booze, strawberry jam. Nice stuff.

Pours red with a lot of foam, good lacings. Aroma is fruity, sweetish and has loads of depth. Really nice. Taste has fruits too, mainly nice bitter rowans.Dry aftertaste and some malty breadiness coming out too. Long rowan bitterness, truly a masterpiece. Slow drinker. Need to have this again.

Deep red color. Big frothy rocky white head. Big malty nose with tropical fruit, sweet dried strawberries, pralines, a touch of cotton candy. Wow. Great nose. Big malty mouth with sweet luscious strawberries and raspberries and a touch of tootie roll. Fair amount of hops for a red ale. Really nice malty finish with raspberries and tootie rolls. Love this stuff.

Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a nice clear copper body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up maltiness, some nuttiness, biscuit and then with some thin layers of citrus hoppiness and floral hop notes. Wow, the flavor is malts, sweet malts, a little bit of roasted malts and then big earthy tea notes that I just love. This goes together very well. Midway the earthy tea is joined by citrus hops and heading like this into the finish. Wow! I love this.
