->Really no aroma on this one.
->Almost a dark ale instead of a red, would dial back on the roasted barley to give less color for it to be a red ale.
->Not much head, and if you gave it a good poor the head would fall away with little to no lacing.
->Full Bodied at the front of the tongue and full of malt flavor.
->At the middle of the tongue the bitterness of the extra hops starts to kick. However not getting any of the taste of the hops and only bitterness.
->At the back of the tongue getting a little more hop bite and its almost counterbalancing the malt in an unfavorable way, but then once you swallow your like hmm, thats not bad I'll take another sip
->Note sure I would brew this again as a Red Ale. I woudl for sure brew it as a Dark Ale instead and bumb up the ABV. Celler this one for a bit longer as the hop bitterness tones down with age and turns into a really great beer when left to condition > 1 month.
->Was a 'green' beer for a good month and only recently started to mellow out. This green period was longer then other beers I've brewed.
Thanks again for posting the recipe enjoyed brewing it.
