Sampled on tap at Fulton. Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, syrupy, malty flavors. Kinda flat and cardboardy. commonshawn (1311) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Tap. Dark unfiltered red. Small head and decent lacing. Funky dark fruit aroma. Yeasty dark fruit taste. I liked the balance and slight sourness. commonmac (1314) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Tap at Northbound Smokehouse. A better than average red ale with a strong amber appearance. Light on the lacing but still strikes a fresh visual. Tastes mild without much aggression. More malt than hops but decently balanced. Aftertaste not its strong point...definitely leads with its best foot forward. A good option from one of the best MN breweries. cavana40 (21) - - OCT 26, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Full bodied beer, great for autumn drinking. Lots of hops but also malty to smooth it out. Would definitely recommend and drink again! Nsanders (1163) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2013
750 mL bottle. Red brown with a moderate orange tan head. Caramel, grainy alcohol, light rye dryness, malty and light vanilla. Taste is sweet, but fades to an alcohol dryness. Body is heavier with a syrupy feel.

Murky brown. Sweet malt on the nose. Caramel malts balanced with prominent hops. Some dark fruit flavors too. Soft mouthfeel. Nice

Sweet malt with a rye spice in the background. I’m getting some dark fruit and hop bitterness in the finish. This is really smooth beer.

Bottle. Dark amber pour, very light carbonation and an aroma of spicy rye and caramel. Flavor is also some spicy caramel, hints of medicinal raisins and dry & a little warming on the finish. At $10 bottle, I’ll probably only pick this one up once; but good nonetheless. jcwattsrugger (12518) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2013
750 bottle-thanks Jim-retaining tight tan head with trailing lace-dk copper. A-pine/orange, sweet med malt-caramel, yeast. T-orange/pine/spice hops, sweet med malt-caramel/roast, med fruit, yeast. Maybe some homebrew character, but not strong enough to detract.

Capped 750 from Guerde. What trading is all about! Thanks Andy! Pours almost cherry red with a slight beige head. Aroma is heavy malt - sort of like a rye wee heavy? Full bodied. Boy it is malty. There’s some roast malt, something a little nutty perhaps, and there are rye spice notes. It doesn’t finish exactly dry, but it is pretty close considering how malty it starts.
