polarisbeerguy (19) - Lake Orion, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2013
UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 A deep rustic red pour with a nice floral scent. Gives a strong yet not overpowered bitter taste and a fresh finish for a imperial red

rumproasts (2948) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2014
bottle. Reddish brown with small head. Malty base with medium hops. I’m not a fan of crystal malt, and this one has a very generous amount, so I’m not really enjoying this much.

atlrizzob (161) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Pours brown with red hue and beige head. Has the aroma of sweet malty caramel. Very nice taste of hops, caramel, molasses, and a lingering yeast taste. Medium bodied. Nice

Lectvay (145) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Intriguing beer. Dark brown, very opaque. Smells quite sweet, like creme brulee or something. Taste is a little sweet and much roastier than I expected. A little creamy, and a hint of coffee, so it made me think of a latte. Not how I would expect an imperial red ale taste, but I like it.

Many thanks to my Secret Santa nimbleprop for this beer!!
Reddish-brown in the glass, nose is dark malty, plums, not too nice. The beer starts rough, malty. Dark red fruit. Plums. Viscous. Slightly sweet - too sweet. Dark dried cherries, The aftertaste is medium, fruity, a bit of dark and bitter chocolate, espresso, but this doesn’t fit. Slightly unround. The aftertaste is long, intense but a bit pushing. And not really easy to drink.
Nice experience, but it didn’t convinced me. --> 6/8/7/7

Bottle. Pours reddish brown. Aroma of dirt, some alcohol perhaps. Taste is not pleasant, and finishes bitter, and sticky. (From notes)

12oz bottle pours a hazy, brick red with some sudsy white head. Nose is decent enough, some malt, some red grape, some blood orange, bread crust. Flavor is malty, cracker, bread crust, orange peel, some pepper. Full bodied, bitter finish.

Bottled. In my opinion, it's really more of a brown than a red. Malty, lingering finish. -via BBapp
