Chestnut pour with 2-finger off-white head and lacing. Pine dominates the nose, but some sweet malts sneak in there too. Same goes in flavor. Hops spice and booze is evident too. Pretty bitter.

At the brewery. In a snifter. Pours dark caramel brown with little head. Soft caramel with mild orange hoppy taste that softly lingers. Perfectly cold.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home thanks to Clint (starcross). Pours a dark Amber, decent white head with good retention. Aroma is piney, light caramel and toast. Solidly hoppy. Mmm. Taste is piney hops, light caramel and honey, light toast and cracker. Moderately bitter, slight alcohol burn. Medium body, medium carbonation, a bit sticky on the palate. Stays with you. Nice beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a medium/dark red with moderate head. Woodsy, piney aroma with extremely faint citrus. Bitter taste brings the piney notes with it. Full body with light to average carbonation. Goes down well, an excellent beer to have outside

Bottle. Deep red. Aroma is very strong pine. The taste starts sweet and bitter then finishes with apples, caramel, and fruit juice. The mouthfeel has a very soft gummy bears characteristic, average carb, and lingering alcohol. Really awesome huge version of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear copper pour with a small head that fades to a nice ring. Aromas are dank pine, caramel apple, bread, and flowers. Tastes like caramel apples and pine mostly. Some light fruit bread too. Light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Fairly dry in the finish. Full body. Pretty solid. An imperial red sipper. Wish it was just a little more smooth.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hoppy, sweet initial taste. A little too sweet, but it becomes less noticeable quickly. Soft bitterness on the palate that doesn't linger very long. Overall, it's not bad, but I'm not blown away. The 9.4 is doing its trick though.
