On tap at Bailey’s Taproom in Portland, OR. Colour... dark amber with a thick head. Nose... sweetly malty, some mash character and booze as well. Palate... good CO2 punch to start, lots o’ hops up front, malty, biscuity, and plenty of toffee on the back palate. Doesn’t seem like 9% ABV. This could really sneak up on a person!

Another really good beer, unfortunately this was my last of OBF. Wow that ABV takes you for a ride. Very strong malt body and a bitter quality throughout.

It’s muky but also appealing, like a bran muffin or plum pudding, but cold, a little body chewiness, thats okay, maybe oatmeal. the aroma is solidly blaanced tween malt and hops, so at moments i dont smell either. dome spice, maybe cardamon. similar spice in the flavor, the fruit flavor not quite peach or plum, reined in by hte hops, towards the piney, but balanced by the fruit.

Tap... Poured a hazy ruby with a beige head. Floral aroma with leafy hops and maybe brown sugar, well, something sweet. Highly carbonated and it had a foamy texture. Flavors of dry hops, caramel, malt, and plums for an extra sweetness. Besides the intense carbonation, this seemed pretty close to a Barley Wine.

Draft at TFD Boise: Pours a muddy orange color with a large sandy head. Aroma is intense with floral and citrus hoppiness, just a little malty sweets. I really liked the hop presence here, potent, but in balance with the caramel malt. This was really enjoyable.

On tap at the Front Door Boise, ID. Pours out a nice amber topped with a nice tan head. A great aroma of hops all over it. A nice mix of sweetness and bitter. A very good brew.

IndianaRed (2597) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On tap at the Front Door. Clear medium amber with a nice full light tan head. Big carmel sweet malty aroma with a little hop bite. Flavor is balanced and gig. Almost barleywinish. Faded subdued hops and a thock smooth feel. nice.

Thanks to Gareth for the taster--Poured a deep brown-mahogany hue with a small rocky off-white head. Nose of sweet malts and biting piny hops. Sweet and fruity notes with mildly nutty flavors. Pretty good, as most TG beers are.
