Clear, dark crimson coloring, big, creamy head, vast and lacey.
Aroma: thick, slick, and resiny. Bittersweet, fruity, yet dry. Very nice. Piney, fruity, plump.
In the mouth: Boom! It's a big ol' mess of sweet malt and resiny, piny hops. Long malty finish. Lays heavy on the palate. Medium-bodied. Full-flavored. Big malt, big hops, big, big, big.
I'm not crazy about this one. It's a nice treat once in a while, but I can't imagine having two in a row.
