COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our rye centric farmhouse red ale. Ample malt and fermentation-derived aromatics and flavors of plum, raisin, apricot, white pepper. Wood and earthy spice from the hops. Certainly a deep malt profile with a dry rumminess on the finish from the turbinado sugar, luxurious creamy mouthfeel.

DrSilverworm (7960) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Tasted during RBWG post-grand tasting shit-show hotel-tasting. Clear amber orange red color. Bigger off-white head. Splotches and bits of lace, looks solid. Stronger carbonation, though. Bigger body, kind of slick carbonation. Light slick. Caramel malt, mild spiciness. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Some mild heat. OK musty caramel strong ale. More heat than necessary.

Thanks James for this trade. Very farmhouse aroma. A bit acidic sour. Average mouthfeel. Not best example of the style but still good drinkability.
