On tap in a flight at the Custer location. Clear, dark, ruby brown, with a small, cream head. The nose is distinct butter toffee, walnuts, pumpernickel bread, and cinnamon. Very sweet, with no balancing bitterness. Some savory spice. Medium to heavy body, syrupy, sticky, and creamy. This is a very malty, very sweet beer. No balance, but it still works.

Draft. Clear amber maroon color, small off white head. Aroma of toasted brown bread. Taste has burnt caramel. Decent. Iphonephan (7283) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2015
On draft at the Cheyenne Brewers Festival 2015. Pours a clear amber with a tan head. Nutty nose. Malty flavors. Bitter finish. Idigguns (16) - Davie, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Beer flight from draught at the brewery, about a 4 oz pour. 2014 release.foyle (429) - Wyoming, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Aroma: malt, dough, citrus hops, hint of nuts.
Appearance: clear, red with small off-white head, light lacing.
Taste: nutty, roasted, malty with a little caramel, but too hoppy.
Palate: medium body, a bit creamy, medium carbonation, mildly bitter in the finish.
Overall: I really wanted to like this ale. It sounded really good, and I usually like reds. I detected no cherry, not in the aroma or in the taste. IMHO, it’s way too hoppy for a red, maybe that’s what turned me off so much. I can’t imagine trying to pair it’s complex character with food.
Served on tap at brew festival
Appearance: Thin off white head recedes leaving a bit of lacing. Color is a clear reddish-brown. No visible streaming carbonation.
Aroma: Strong caramel aroma, along with heavy malt presence akin to rising bread dough, some mild citrus hop as well.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied and sticky with a pleasant dry finish.
Flavor: Caramel is the dominate flavor, along with some nutty flavors and rich roasted barley. Finish has mild citrus and earthy hops.
Overall: outstanding. A very delicious beer. Not harsh and no off-flavors.
