Tap @ Rose & Raindrop for RBSG 04
Clear ruby color with a very light head & lacing. The aroma has lots of hops and lots of sweet caramelized malts. The flavor is sweet & full-bodied. Interesting finish of sour grapes and tang.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 On tap @ Rose & Raindrop. Dark burgundy, very thick and frothy... certainly a barley wine in my opinion. Overly-bitter, very vinuous and with some woody musty flavors... quite strong, with some tobacco in the finish.

balanced honey hop aroma, yellowish orange with no head, sweet building hoppiness, grassy finish, cleans up nicely despite all the hops

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Sasquatch brew festival in Eugene,OR. Dark red/amber color with a small white head that fell quickly. Very malty aroma with a roasted edge. This was a very sweet tasting brew, clinging to the palate, very strong tasting for a bitter, probably why its imperial. Brew had a slightly bitter end and had a nice hop-finished aftertaste.
