On tap at the Grad in Davis, CA. Poured a deep red color and smelled of clove and spice. Sweet malty flavor, but lack of carbonation really took away from the experience.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Beautiful finger and half of off-white head on a dark red colored body.
The aroma is nice but faint. Caramel and dry barley.
The taste heavy on the malt but not too sweet. Thereís a little hit of lemon bitter in the middle. It finishing long and dry.
The texture is thicker with low carbonation.

Bottle via Jason + Elizabeth. Pours a medium brown color, off white head. Nose is big, caramel and candi sugar, raisins, and just a hint of the rye. Body is medium, surprising in its lack of malt. Finish slightly tart. Very interesting, canít complain.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours amber with a quarter inch tan head of foam. The aroma has a bit of roasted malts and malt earthiness and then some mild spicy to floral to earthy hop notes. The taste is pretty rich with modestly roasted malts and then a mix of spicy hops, earthy hops and a mineral note. To midway the roasted malts grow a bit and pick up a sliver of floral hops into the finish. This has big flavor that comes together pretty darn well.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep ruby red with a ft dollop of cloudy white. Aroma is subtle yet complex blend of toasted bread crust, rich caramel, peppery rye, and citrus (lemon zest?). Big, smooth and balanced with flavors of roasty malt, sweet caramel, some light fruitiness (blackberry?) and lemon peel. Finish is smooth with a slight bitterness that lingers pleasantly. Give me some blue cheese!
