Great ASA and a very good Imperial Red as i would call it. Great amount of alcohol makes you very warm and the hops do leave a sting on your palate.

tons of hops, slight amber malts, good full malt body to stand up to the crazy hops. slight sweetness, and almost saline quality to it. heavy mouthfeel. not for multiples, but damn good.

On tap at gingerman with Steph. Spicy and herbal aroma. Warm rye, peppercorn flavor, burst of burnt orange flavor in the finish. Respectable, though I’ve never really gained much love for rye ales.

On tap. Nice looking red ale. Very malty on the nose and in the taste initially. Over time I started to feel the bitterness on the palate. Tastes like a malt bomb, finishes like a hop bomb. Very nice beer!

On tap at Good Beer. Amber pour. Very big, sweet, and hoppy. TB is rich and resiny, with plenty of nip and a strong dry, warm, finish. It tastes like an imperial amber/lager. Very good.

Sample on Day 2 of the Aces & Ales Strong Beer Festival on 08/13/2011. This brew pours a dark copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and toasted malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character that has grass and citrus notes. Sweet malt undertones. The finish is grassy and resiny hops with a lasting bitterness. Good beer overall.

Pours distinctly red with a medium tan head...good lacing. Aroma has sweet citrus, vanilla, caramel malt...seems oaked though I don’t think it is. Flavor is very earthy and dry...some earthy fruitiness but not sweet...spicy hops...barleywine-like. Mouthfeel is somewhat oily and finish is very earthy and very dry.
