COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of a “West-Coast” Imperial Red Ale. Upon first sip, this beer showcases a delicious malt bill worthy of any Red Ale. A face-melting 120 IBU’s quickly follows, however this extreme bitterness only compliments the bold and unique flavor packed into this outcast of an ale. We then age the finished beer in Whiskey barrels for a minimum of 3 months. What comes out is on of the most unique barrel aged beers you will ever have, with massive amounts of caramel, vanilla, oak and Whiskey notes. Fall/Autumn seasonal brew, bottles may be available through out the year. 120 IBU, 10.5% ABV

From the tap at the brewery and a very hazy brownish red ale.Smells very boozey and a light head.Not too much boozey and you can still taste a great amount of the red ale.

ICEatALAMO (1243) - Troy, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2016
'14 bottle. The pour is a murky cooper color. The aroma has some funk to it. The taste is metallic, some harsh whiskey taste to it. Not a fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hopverdju (338) - BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2015
Bruin bier met weinig schuim. Geur: zoete mout, karamel en in tegenstelling tot wat er op het flesje staat; weinig of geen vanille. Smaak: Zoetig, karamel, lekker goed getoast en een goeie hop bitterheid. goeie balans. Bitterige afdronk.

Sampled at GABF 2015. In the glass a dark muddy red. Tan foam. Nose of dark caramel malts and some whiskey. Full body. Flavor is very rich and full of flavors including dark ripe fruit, touch of vanilla, and wood. Very tasty brew.

Murky red - brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is airy and a little soft, mild fine carbonation. Smooth malts. a little creamy sweetness. Bitterish wood offset by mild vanilla. Bitter marmalade and light floralness. The bitterness starts to fade as the beer warms up. Mild fruity whisky adds further depth. A big chewy beast of a beer, but the whole bottle disappeared soon enough!

Alengrin (4065) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2015
At GBF. Deep bronze coloured beer under a thin, pale beige head. Interesting aroma of spareribs with honey, toasted bread, caramel, vanilla, liquorice, aromatic eucalyptus-like aspects. Intense taste, some apparently oxidized malts, caramelly with a toasted edge, tad smoky, vinous and full mouthfeel, dry red wine effect in the end along with a long, piney, spicy hop bitterness. Stone’s Arrogant Bastard is not that far away, in any case an interesting red ale packed with flavour.

sebletitje (8606) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2015
Sample @ 6de Gents Bierfestival 2015. Brune sur un léger trouble, col fin beige voire blanc-cassé. Arôme met de suite un accent sur le côté prenant de la barrique offrant de belles effluves de Whisky avec un léger rétro vanillé. Rétro met aussi en avant un malté agréable tirant sur le caramel, léger grillé et touche de chocolaté. Palais sur un palais prenant alcoolisé et réchauffant. Retrouve un beau boisé sur fine note de vanille. Malt pâle et caramel? pointe de grillé, les houblons sont aussi bien là rappelant des essences vertes, agrumes et bien citronnées. Le tout restant un peu faiblard pour une bière qui s’enorgueillit de pousser les 100IBU.
