3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2016 A medium-to-full bodied malty and rich red ale that shows an aroma of wood, apple bake, black cherry, nuts, fall leaves. It’s sticky, spicy, savory and lush, finishing bitter and halfway sweet. There are a lot of Amber/Red Ales from Costa Rica microbreweries, for some reason. These burly 7% versions are especially odd. Why strong red beer of all things? Unlike so many bad examples of the style made in CR (Niño Huracán, Craft Beer Co., Beéche, Dos Hermanos), this one seems like a finished product.
