3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark ruby red that’s fairly opaque with a thick tan head.
The aroma is heavy on roasted coffee beans, celery, burnt cookies, and caramel.
The mouthfeel is smooth, with low-medium carbonation. It’s a bit thicker than most Irish Reds.
The taste is coffee, sweet caramel and a mild bitter finish. The Kent hops are there, but not as much as I’d like.
Hazy dark amber color, with a copper hue, and dense activity. Weak creamy beige 1 finger head, lasting around 2 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of caramel, dark malts, nutmeg, faint molasses, berries, plums, prunes, and herbal spices. Sugary malty and estery feel, lightly earthy with bitter leafy spices. Smooth full body with crispy carbonation. Moderately strong finish, nicely spiced, lingering toffee feel with a dash of smoked barley. Rich and bold red ale. Pleasant to drink, good balance and freshness. Quite tasty and well intensified. Overall pretty good quality craft. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 16, 2016
A deep amber pour with creamy white head. Flavor is light sweet caramel malt and floral hops. A touch thin and watery. still ok by me robinvboyer (4812) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2015

Dark red body, off white head, nice lacing. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is dried fruit, maybe a touch of Belgian candy, quite sweet, could use some hops to balance it out. Not bad. cards04 (2943) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
Not as bad as I thought it would be.. Considering their IPA was nothing special. Pours a maroon color. Aromas of dark grains, root beer, strawberries and cream. Very malty and sweet. Nice.

ENG: 500ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku glass. Dark brown color, clean with red highlights, with small, tan head. Aromas of caramels, roasty, roasted coffee beans. Tastes pretty the same - sweety, delicately roasted coffee, malty and caramelly. Long, coffee bitter aftertaste. Low to medium carbonation, medium body but bit too watery. Overall nice, roasty, caramelly and coffee character beer.DomD (317) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2015
PL: Butelka 500ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Barwa ciemno brązowa, klarowna, pod światło czerwona, piana jasna, niewielka. Aromaty karmelowe, palone ziarna kawy. W smaku mniej-więcej to samo - słodkie, delikatna palona kawa, słody, karmel. W posmaku długa, kawowa goryczka. Niskie do średniego nasycenie, średnie odczucie w ustach, jednak ogólnie nieco wodniste. Podsumowując przyjemne palone, karmelowe i kawowe połączenie smaków.
