The taste is a smooth, malty one with a balanced hoppy finish that includes hints of sweet caramel

650ml bottle from The Beer Cellar. Big full aroma, looks and smells like a scotch ale. Copper red colour with a sliver of foam. Full bodied and fills the mouth with a big hop flavour. This beer is awesome.

For Strong Ale fans, a perfect option. Description is right on...The color is a burnt amber with red highlights and the aroma has a spicy hop presence with moderate caramel malt accents. The taste is a smooth, malty one with a balanced hoppy finish that includes hints of sweet caramel...YUM!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Has a bitter edge with a heavy palate (and some sweetness). It has the layers of taste that separate beers of this quality from cheap and simple beers. It’s not a session beer- this is an excellent sipping beer.

Aroma is malty piney citrussty and swer almost like a candy apple. Pours since deep amber with a rocky head and laces nicely. Taste is malty caramel with enough citrussty to balance it out. Nice hops presence. Medium bodies and oily and smooth to the palate nice hops bite. Overall a great beer. Pitched this up in Seville Spain.

This is one of my very favorites from Pizza Port. Reds aren’t supposed to be this hoppy. I am very glad it is. This stuff will grow hair on your nipples.

Väriltään haihyökköys on kirsikanpunainen. Vaahtoa muodostuu suhteellisen niukasti ja se on vaaleaa. Tuoksu on hedelmäinen, karamellinen ja havuinen. Humaloinnin maussa on kunnon potkua ja katkeruutta on reippaasti. Jälkimaku kestää. Tuhti ja kuivan hedelmäinen olut. Sanokaa mitä sanotte, mutta ainakin minulle sopii.

22oz bottle poured into imperial pint. Outstanding color of pale red and brown mahogany. Thick, creamy head that maintains long and leaves widespread lacing. Aroma is awesome: resin/sprucey hops, caramel malt sweetness and some citrus fruit. Wonderfully balanced and complex taste! Great citrus sweetness gives way to a hoppy floral bite that ends with an abrupt grapefruit/lemon finish. Woody throughout with caramel and maybe some slight molasses and licorice. Wonderful beer.
