  • Pour: The One-Off Ale pours a hazy, golden orange with a frothy, 1+ finger white head with great sustain and lots of intricate lacing.
  • Nose: The nose is very fruity, citrusy, dank, and sweet.  There are aromas of orange juice, grapefruit juice, tangerine, pine resin, fresh baked bread, and soft caramel.
  • Taste: The taste of the One-Off Ale follows the nose with lots of citrusy, fruity, sweet, and earthy flavors.  There are notes of orange juice, tangerine, pine, black tea, bitter herbs, and sweet caramel.  
  • Mouthfeel: Medium to full-bodied and moderately carbonated, the mouthfeel of the One-Off Ale is crisp, yet somewhat thick and sticky with a dry, slightly bitter finish.
Overall pairing: The One-Off Ale is a small batch, limited edition, wonderfully complex and tasty DIPA and coupled with a shot of whiskey from Outlaw Distillery, it is perfect for the heavy metal onslaught that is Truce In Blood's wonderful "Pride Vs. Justice"!  Those punchy, hoppy flavors and aromas of the One-Off and the bold, malty notes of Outlaw's whiskey are the perfect companions for the heavy metal onslaught that is Truce In Blood!!

Pick up a copy of Truce In Blood's amazing new CD from the Heavy Metal Shop (, grab a bottle of whiskey from Outlaw Distillery (, and a brew from Talisman Brewing Company and embrace a fucking kickass evening of metal and deliciously crafted beer and whiskey!!
