COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg and bottles, special
10 Heads High is loosely based on our awesome 2011 Prototype beer Hops Kill Nazis. This is an uncompromising 7.7% Imperial Red Ale loaded high with American Hops. Think of this as an Imperial india Rd Ale, or a super-charged version of 5am Saint. Either way this is a seriously good beer!
2013 vintage - 7.8% abv

Foffern (1408) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle at home. Has a hazy and deep mahogany colour with a small beige head. Powerful hoppy aroma with dried apricot, pine and black currant. Lots of hops in the flavour as well with some roasted malt, wood and leather. Rich and smooth mouth feel, and a medium to heavy bitterness. The hops dominates this beer, maybe too much in my opinion since there is more interesting tastes in the background.

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Glowing dark ruby, candyfloss head. Fruity aroma, wood, dirt. The dryness is firmly in control here, we are in resina territory. But there is a lot of fruit underneath.

Inbreak (2758) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 15.09.2013, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy longlasting head, and this can truly be called a red ale. Aroma is lots of hops, toffee, forest floor, pine needles, rubber, grass. Taste is harsh grassy, lots of harsh hops, wet leafs, bark, soil, pine needles, burnt caramel, harsh grass, sap, wet grain. Longlasting harsh bitterness. Too bitter and harsh for my taste.

Sweet and hoppy aroma. The taste however I find rather odd, bitter, a bit sweet and taste of old fruits. Is it oxidized?

teorn88 (3585) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Keg at BD Shoreditch. Fruity smell with dried fruit. The taste had some tobacco or "snus" aromas. This is probably a hop variety as I get the same thing from Red Seal Ale. Meh beer.

Lilja (2091) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2013
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, tropisk frukt med toner av russin och tall. Tydlig beska men lite ojämn i sitt framförande. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
