The pour is a somewhat hazy reddish brown with a modest light tan creamy head that fails quickly leaving a velum like coating of lace. Nose has a sweet rich malt aroma, caramel, and a bit of hops, spicy and pleasant. Front is quite sweet, decently malted, with a touch of the bittering hops at the back, moderate in feel. Finish has a fair to middling acidity, the hops delectable in their spiciness, sweet and dry aftertaste lingers long on the palate, a quite nice beer.
Bottle as a gift. Mid- to dark brown, translucent with lots of visible carbonation but very little head. Chocolate and oak aroma with a touch of vanilla. Bittersweet taste, slightly metallic. Finish is more bitter with horehound notes in the aftertaste. Watery body. Competent but not overly impressive. rebelred (15) - cork, IRELAND - FEB 7, 2017
