COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep mahogany red colored ale. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this ale uses a combination of caramel and roasted malts and specially selected hops to create a beer with a flavor that leads with a rich malty sweetness balanced with a bold hop signature, followed by a luscious chocolate/cocoa roasty finish.

malrubius (1862) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle from Meditrina. Reddish brown with lasting head and lace. Harsh herbal aroma that takes a sec to settle in. Roasted chocolate caramel sweetness with aggressive herbal lingering bitterness and long roasted chocolate finish. Somewhat harsh for a red ale I think.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Ruddy and full bodied, this is a great drink. Sturdy and classic, with a full-on toasted character and slight but well balanced hop kick in the finish. Delish. (#5807, 10/9/2014)

annunz123 (881) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Nutty malt and mild pine hops in the aroma. Flavor starts mildly sweet and nutty. Grassy bitterness and an unpleasant metallic aftertaste in the finish. Decent but nothing special

22oz bottle. Pours medium amber. Very drinkable brew with more hop flavors than expected. Nothing great but still pretty good.

Ed5388 (2236) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2013
On tap @ the brewery. Pours a deep amber color with a small tan head. Aroma of light caramel malts and roasted grain. Taste is much the same. Decent roasted amber.

puboflyons (2233) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 4, 2013
From the 650 ml. bottle that appears be marked 13148. The pour is brown to copper with no red hues as far as I can tell. Nice full head. The aroma is malt forward with a citrus note and a moderate hop note. The body is medium. The taste begins sweet and malty and quickly evolves into a hop-fed dry finish. Not overly bitter but the bitterness that is there lingers.

FrancisT (7) - Winooski, Vermont, USA - JUN 27, 2013 does not count
6/27/13. Meh. Aroma is nice and hoppy in typical VT style, but this disappoints from there. Thin mouthfeel, and taste. Poorly balanced malt/ hop. No sir, I don't like it.
