Capped 750 from Guerde. What trading is all about! Thanks Andy! Pours almost cherry red with a slight beige head. Aroma is heavy malt - sort of like a rye wee heavy? Full bodied. Boy it is malty. There’s some roast malt, something a little nutty perhaps, and there are rye spice notes. It doesn’t finish exactly dry, but it is pretty close considering how malty it starts.

750 bottle-thanks Jim-retaining tight tan head with trailing lace-dk copper. A-pine/orange, sweet med malt-caramel, yeast. T-orange/pine/spice hops, sweet med malt-caramel/roast, med fruit, yeast. Maybe some homebrew character, but not strong enough to detract.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear red with a touch of amber and a near white head that dissipates it the edges. Aroma has lots of sweet grains with hints of caramel and light fruits underlying. Flavor is similar with sweet grains and bread up front with a touch of light fruit in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, dark red pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, dark red fruits, some slight toffee, earth, hints of a spicy hop, touch of grain, pretty much your standard red. Taste is similar with some caramel, toffee, nice red fruits, finishing fairly sweet, slightly spicy, and slightly bitter. Not very memorable.

ABR 2010. I liked this. Tons of malt aroma and grainy, malt flavor on the palate with bread. Just a light hint of roast. The rye gives a very light sourness. Red/brown color.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pretty a much a style I never desire, the Imperial Red. Cherry, vanilla, big amber malt notes, not enough hops to balance it out. The rye really oversweetens an already sweet beer. Very malt forward, pretty drinkable for the ABV. OK.
