3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/25/11, Release #7
Aroma: The nose is sweet and sugary, with caramel malts, roast, fruity notes, and some hoppy undertones
Appearance: This one pours a murky, almost dirty, amber-brown color with an off-white head and good lacing
Flavor: Tastes more balanced with the mid-plus caramel sweetness, fruit flavors, and low-mid hop bitterness
Palate: It is medium bodied with a mouthfeel that’s sticky sweet (not quite cloying, but it does detract a little)
Overall, I thought this beer was decent, but I just wanted it to be a little bit better. I would have prefered some more presence from the hops and a little less of the (almost) cloying sweetness, as it was a little hard to get past. To me, this one was more like a Barley Wine then an Imperial Red. It is a decent offering, but honestly, I wanted to like this one more then I did.

bottle-pours dark deep red with a soapy eggshell head. nice nose-resinous hops, big dark fruits (figs, plums), earthy notes, slight metallic notes. flavors of earthy hops, lite resin, rasins, grapes, plums, with some earthy alcohol on the finish. not overly the top with aclohol but it is there. long sweet fruity finish after the alcohol fades. this is a pretty decent beer and it has aged well. Im pretty impressed. I need to have this fresh on tap sometime.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This poured a ruby red color with a beige head. Aroma was ofcitrusy and piney hops, roasted malt, and toffee. Very in you face. Flavor was much the same, nice bitter citrusy hops with toffee and caramel backbone to make this really well balanced. Nice!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Sample at Papsø’s) Pours a slightly hazy copper amber with tan head and lace. Aroma is a fresh herbal hoppy complemented by a strong, malty sweetness. Just like a red ale should be. Medium carbonation, full-bodied, oily texture and a short sweet finish. Taste is less harmonic - a bit muddled impression with the sweetness and bitterness being present but not really playing up to each other as well as in the nose.
