3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served in a pint glass at Twisted Pine. Dark, clear amber pour with a finger of head that is mostly diminishing. Aromas of caramel, malt, and dough. Flavor is sweet up front, malty, nutty and caramel/coffee, with a hint of hops and caramel to finish. Moderate carbonation and medium body. Overall, drinkable and enjoyable.

I thought this was a decent Red. One of my go to styles these days. Worth a try.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours clear deep ruby red with thin mocha head. The aroma has a pretty bold mix of sweet nuttiness, sweet dark fruity esters and some mildly rich maltiness. The taste comes to the plate with some roasted malts, nuttiness and sweet dark fruity esters mingling around one another. To midway a moderate level of spicy anise and chocolate malts murmur up and join in. Nice bold notes throughout that do their best to pull together but don’t get all the way there.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is very grainy with caramel, molasses, and earth. The appearance is red brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a hoppy finish. The palate is a bit thin but OK. Overall not great but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed on tap a the brewery’s tasting room. Left this to put out the fire from the chiles and bourbon, being a malt combination, but it seemed astringent a bit in its own right. Dark colour, drinkable, but nothing to write home about. Want a more complex and rich malt profile.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. A little too much amber malt character to make me think Scottish Ale, this is pretty much an Amber or Red. Smooth, medium bodied, pretty clean and drinkable. Some vanilla-amber malt tastes, sugary and sweet. Easy drinking, OK.
