Cloudy red - brown beer, good pale tan head. Pleasant nose of mild vanilla and fruits. Slightly dry palate. Creamy malt. Mild vanilla oak (is this barrel aged?). Repressed orange and red berry fruits. Finishes creamy. Thought this was an Imperial Red - very nice whatever it is.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 5, 2010
750 c&c - but I didn’t note who shipped it. Likely South Bay Drugs. Pours dark ruddy amber with a foamy 4 finger light tan head. Aroma of cooked caramel through the head, hintof sourfrom the bottle. I hope. Med body/frothy carb. It’s not really very sour - just a hint. Basically it’s a very malty thing with some yeast/spice aspect and enough hop to moderate the malt. Imperial Flanders Red? That’s Dissident in my book. This is a good beer, but not exactly what I’d hoped. The rye aspect makes it fairly interesting. I can imagine a Brett aspect, but it’s pretty submerged.

Tmoney99 (10405) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle. Poured hazy dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted malt, yeast and bread aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a solid bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout complex beer.
