Sampled this at The Dabbler yesterday. A very pleasant beer and surprisingly easy drinking for an imperial red.

Draft at Fulton Taphouse near Target Field in Minneapolis. Sweetness in the nose. Softly carbonated. Higher alcohol prevalent. Caramel notes with a hint of molasses. A little harshness/pepper in the finish. Nice beer, probably their best to date.

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.

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.

Tasted this at it’s release party in minneapolis. Thought it was a tasty Red Ale, well balanced and unique, and smoother that the ABV would indicate. surely worth a try.

On tap at Muffuleta's - boy is this nice. Dark ruby pour with a light white head. Malty nose, a heavy red ale that coats your mouth with a nice balance of malt and hops. Really nice! If this was $6 in the stores I would be buying a ton of it!!

Bottle. Dark amber pour, very light carbonation and an aroma of spicy rye and caramel. Flavor is also some spicy caramel, hints of medicinal raisins and dry & a little warming on the finish. At $10 bottle, I’ll probably only pick this one up once; but good nonetheless.

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.
