Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Deep hazy amber orange with a thick creamy off-white head. Sweet caramel malt in chewy proportions with a fruity intense hop profile (Simcoe?), saved from being too sweet by a nice toastiness. Imperial reds can be too cloying for me sometimes, but this one was excellent.

22oz bottle. Murky copper with a foamy beige head and lacing. Aroma is mostly sweet caramel with some pine and citrus. Flavor is sweet caramel with a medium hop bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Medium body with a slightly syrupy mouth feel. Big caramel bomb that is fairly balanced out by the hops and alcohol. Nice.
