I'd rate it pretty highly and a crowd pleaser.
I had a small party the weekend following that post. The day after I went to bottle the rest up and only got 6 .5L bottles filled, hence no followup photo. Everyone enjoyed it, especially the SWMBO.
As far as notes go, the color never was "Ruby red". However, aroma and taste, from what I remember, was exactly what you would expect from this recipe. Whatever esters were present prior to kegging went away shortly after. You could slightly taste them again if the beer was warm, but you had to be looking for it at that point.
When I finally move and get my equipment unpacked, this is likely the first thing I'm making, since it was universally enjoyed.
