COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Wild Ale.
And lo, before the brewers of Freetail stood two freshly emptied Port barrels, calling to be filled and their potential realized. “To ze lab!” proclaimed staff Astrophysicist Dr. Klaus von Brandenburgen. For hours the brew team and Klaus brainstormed before it dawned on them that Klaus actually knows little to nothing about recipe formulation. “Das Leben ist wie ein Kinderhemd--kurz und beschissen. I am physicist,” said Klaus as he walked away. Left to their own devices, the brew team developed Double Red Rooster, which eventually went into barrels and transformed into this tawny, rich brew with hints of tartness. Es ist noch nicht aller Tage Abend. Ingredients: 2-Row, crystal, melanoidin, special B, chocolate and honey malts; peak alpha hops; top-fermenting yeast; natural, limestone-filtered, Edwards Aquifer H2O; last-minute inspiration.

"Sour red reminiscent of a slightly duller Oude Tart, with the aging in port barrels giving it a nice acidity and a little extra sweetness and oak. Finish is just ok, but it’s a solid sour..."

Bottle @ Armin’s apartment, courtesy of skycracksopen. Thanks Dave! Pours a hazy reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Acetic, black cherry, funky, lightly vinous, citrusy aroma. Oaky, fairly tart, black cherry, light caramel, woody flavor. Not to fucken hard to drink.

arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Dave for the pour! Clear dark red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of tart fruits, hints of oak, slight vinegar, hints of caramel. Taste is a mix of tart fruit, mixed caramel, toffee, touch of oak, slight caramel, finishing fairly tart, slightly bitter. Tasty.

Bottle share on the brewbus by Thirdeye11 I believe. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. The aroma is massive cherries, oak, caramel, candy, big barrel. A sweet favor with lots of tart elements, cherries, toasted malts, figs, some sweeter spirit (not sure what this was aged in), and lingering sour fruit. Very nice.

Bottle provided by Huhzubendah. Thanks! Poured a ruby color with a wispy white head. Aroma was slightly tart, with some sweet, but still pretty tart notes. A pretty drinkable and enjoyable brew. Liked this one a lot.
