3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden with small khaki head. Aroma is hop overload with some grass and a little sweetness. Taste is a well balanced hop to malt thing going on with the malt dominating but in a nice way. Just seems like an amped up Evil Dead Red. Nice winter beer.

Smell of hops, spices, mulled wine. Ruby red colour, high beige head. Aroma of syrup, pepper, hops, alcohol. Bitter, slightly sweet. Imperial IPA qualities. A bit too stinging with alcohol, otherwise a fine experience.

Pours a nice reddish brown with beige froth. Big bold aroma of pine and earthy citrus with a grainy sweetness underneath. The flavor is similar with hints of chocolate, big barleywine like grains and a robust hop presence. Very smooth for being so rich, like double bastard but better.
