Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured dark ruby color with a moderate frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy toasted malt, vanilla and dark fruit with a small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

Sample from a 750ml bottle at a share. Hazy dark red color. Good khaki head. Good lace. Dark fruit, toasty malt, vanilla. Wonderful aroma. Bigger body, kinda dry finish. Lighter kinda donít carbonation, good chewiness to the texture. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Mild heat but it hides the alcohol well, it works. Great Belgian red.

750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, toasted bread, toffee, with citrus, resiny, earthyhop character, wood, some spicy notes, interesting beer, big and the malts and hops do seem to compete for attention.

750 ml bottle shared by alexsdad06- thanks again, Brad! Pours a hazed amber color with between one and two fingers of beige head that takes a while to settle. Thereís a duality here between the sweet and malty (caramel, toast, toffee, and cardboard) and the bitter (earth, grass, citrus, booze). But there isnít balance. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, bitter, uneven mouthfeel. Itís big and imbalanced, and never really melds together. Feels like two big beers that were poured into the same glass.

"Murky brick red pours thick. Aroma of light citrus hops and a crapload of bready and caramel malts. Big body and flavor but not boozy for the abv. The oak aged ale blended in is quite nice."

Murky reddish brown in color with lots of sediment... Year old bottle... Aroma of citrus hops, sweet caramel malts... Resiny, fruity hop nose... Flavor is fairly sweet up front with nice balance of tropical fruity hops... Notes of oak throughout... Solid beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sarlacc83 (1014) - Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. I have forgotten who sent this, but thank you anyway. A: Dark brown with red hints. big fluffy cappuccino head. Threatens to kill my glass. N: Blast of oak and hops. Spruce, caramel, toffee, red licorice, pineapple, and other tropical fruits. T: Intense bitterness only slightly rounded off by sweetness. Alcohol starts here. M: And blows up here. Thick body, creamy and carbonated, then more alcohol. More, more, more. O: Blowing beer up to twice its original size works in some cases. It doesnít for pilsners, berliner weisses, and such. In this case, it also fails. Itís not a waste of money, but itís not worth your cash, either.

Dogbrick (8813) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 012: Bruery-tastic 01 on 05/16/2014. Murky brownish-amber color with a thick foamy light beige head that dissipates slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, floral hops and caramel. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, citrus, hops and oak. The finish is rich and malty with a citrusy aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Blairgus (2825) - California, USA - MAY 14, 2014
14 may 2014, tap at the Bruery. Light amber. Nose is big grassy dry hops, like inhaling dried hops in your hand. Moderate oakiness as well. Med body and moderately fizzy. Really nice. Has a nice dry woodiness, grassy hops, moderate alcohol, all well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
