3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a old copper red color with a thin tight beige film that fades to a tiny ring. Aroma is malty sweet caramel slight toffee and red licorice. Taste has loads of malt candied sugar toffee and caramel apple with a little spice hop and subtle bitter finish. Palate is medium to full slightly chewy and sticky with a dry finish. I like, but not mind blowing.

Poured on tap at the brewery. Nice dark coloring. Rich malt flavors and lighter in hops than many Imperial Reds I have tried. I like the reduced hop presence. Overall my favorite beer from Fultons

Sampled on tap at Fulton. Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, syrupy, malty flavors. Kinda flat and cardboardy.

Tap. Dark unfiltered red. Small head and decent lacing. Funky dark fruit aroma. Yeasty dark fruit taste. I liked the balance and slight sourness.

Tap at Northbound Smokehouse. A better than average red ale with a strong amber appearance. Light on the lacing but still strikes a fresh visual. Tastes mild without much aggression. More malt than hops but decently balanced. Aftertaste not its strong point...definitely leads with its best foot forward. A good option from one of the best MN breweries.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Full bodied beer, great for autumn drinking. Lots of hops but also malty to smooth it out. Would definitely recommend and drink again!

750 mL bottle. Red brown with a moderate orange tan head. Caramel, grainy alcohol, light rye dryness, malty and light vanilla. Taste is sweet, but fades to an alcohol dryness. Body is heavier with a syrupy feel.

Murky brown. Sweet malt on the nose. Caramel malts balanced with prominent hops. Some dark fruit flavors too. Soft mouthfeel. Nice

Sweet malt with a rye spice in the background. I’m getting some dark fruit and hop bitterness in the finish. This is really smooth beer.
