Bottle, part of Beer Club at Mr. Goodbar in Buffalo, NY. Nice looking deep mahogany red pour. Smooth and complex.....a little bit of sweetness from the malt but still a nice hop bite as well. Powerful beer, and really well done. I love a nice big red.

liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2014
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma is malty, nutty, and a bit citrusy, with hints of toffee, biscuit, and hazelnuts. Mouthfeel and taste begins creamy and sweet, and finishes with a long sweet, bitter, and slightly astringent aftertaste. This beer is much more complex than I remember it being. Pretty great!

julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Pours a nice dark copper red. Aroma is almost non existent. First taste is a bit watery with a sharp, astringent feel. After taste is a bit metallic. I liked this beer at first, but once I really dug into it...not so much.

"pours dark red w/ khaki head. aromatic hops, but a sweet Carmel malt undertone. well balanced flavor reminiscent of red horse and red rocket. good, but not quite as tasty as those 2."

chinchill (4634) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2014
22 oz shared bottle. Nice clear red-amber color. Rather ordinary aroma but a very rich flavor with enough hop balance to leave a mildly bitter finish.

mansquito (5855) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours dark red with a cream head. Aroma is burnt caramel, plenty of hops, and more variety of malt aromas. Taste is like a double IPA that sat for a while, but more so. The burnt caramel is powerful in this one, as is the toffee. However, it is not really all that sweet as a result of the strong hop bitterness. This really isnt my cup of beer.

badpuppy69 (321) - orange, California, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Pours a clear amber red with a nice head. Aroma is roasted sweet malt with some citrus hop notes and spices. Taste follows the aroma well and medium mouth feel. Very good!

bpreo (2709) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Three years living in Eugene, and this is the first time I have rated this beer . It has a very unique flavor, kind of meaty, rich, salty, juicy. Im not sure I like it, but its so different I cant stop from drinking more.
