Crushed with Jakebra and co. at the brewery. Nothing. Compare it to Rogue St. Rogue, there is a world of difference. Not even close. Barely a hint of hops.

Draft at the brewpub. Toffee and subdued dark fruits came out in the nose. Poured a clear medium orange color with an off white head. Sweet and medium bodied with light caramel and brown sugary malt flavors.

Usually after a few IPAs i might switch to a blood. Pours a dark copper colour with a full light brown head. Nice nutty taste from start to finish, smooth, not very rich. Another one of my favorite beers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub on 6/24/07: Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a wispy-lacing thin white head. Lightly toasty grainy malty aroma has some mild hop character. Body starts fairly full and lightly sweet with a hint of tartness and mild citrusy bittering hops toward a bittersweet finish. A decently balanced red ale.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ontap at the brewery. Not impressed at all with any of the beers at this brewery. Typical poor to barely average macro brewpub offerings. Poor non-existent head and watery appearance. Lightly colored shade of red makes this slightly stand out from the other offerings. Hardly any decernable aroma having to really REALLY grasp at pulling anything out. Light presence of some caramel malt and a bit or roastiness. Very watered down and minimal offering for the masses. Again, the house character is very prevalent as well with all their beers having an odd metallic taste and certain terroir that I find very quite displeasing. Not a fan at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Titletown. Poured a deep reddish-caramel with a short white cap of head. Aroma picked up sweet caramel, light smoke, and candy.. quite an enticing nose. Flavor was of sweet toasty caramel with light smoked peat.. nice blend.. little artificial sweetener on the back-end, but remained tasty. Light-medium bodied.. sweet with some smoky influence.. nice sweet finish. Good stuff!
