Penobscot Bay Brewery Red Flannel Ale

Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope you're all enjoying the weekend!  Beautiful day today, I took full advantage of it and jogged around 1.7 miles, averaging just around 10 minutes per mile.  After that, had some Wawa subs for lunch, and worked on a beer mapping project (more details on that later).   The beer write-up today will be another bay I picked up while on vacation in Maine, Penobscot Bay Brewery's Red Flannel Ale.  As a side note, I've decided to start using a fairly arbitrary 10 point system for my beer write-ups.
Not this red flannel though!

Penobscot Bay Brewery's Red Flannel Ale pours a brown color with a hint of red in the light.  Not even half a finger width of head developed.  Smells a sweet caramel, and some dark fruit in there too.  The taste is also quite sweet, full of caramel, lightly roasted coffee, and some raisin in the aftertaste.  The beer tastes only lightly carbonated.  I only got a hint of alcohol as the beer grew warmer, and with no ABV on the bottle, I can only guess that this beer is between 6-8% ABV.  The mouthfeel is a little heavy, so I'm taking my time with this one.

Overall:  This is a great beer to enjoy and sip on as the night goes on. 7/10
