2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I am not sure putting "poison" in the name is a good move. Dark amber body, medium sized creamy light tan head, spotty lacing. Caramel and toffee malts, grainy. One way to make a red ale worse is to make it an imperial red ale. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet finish.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
This rare/new beer from a can that says 8%. Somewhat volatile strong malty aroma. Looks a little viscous with creamy alabaster head. Slightly cloudy vanilla yellah. Taste is well, kick you in the teeth, knock you in the head, rototill into my tongue, warm down the throat. Big long drawn out high alky medicinal finish. Did I say this hides the alky well? Well, if you believe that I’ll tell you that chickens have lips. However, if you like high alky beers, don’t pay attention to my numbers. Give it a try. Typical american strong ale. BTW, I think I’m gettin dizzz - eeeeeeee. I guess its doing what it set out to do.

This one is a little too hop forward for me, but otherwise pretty good, though better Irish reds out there.

A very nice red. Pours a clear amber with a red tint. The aroma is mostly caramel. The flavor has the caramel balanced by just a bit of bitterness.

This one poured a deep red with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, and grasys and grapefruity hops. Flavor was similar, definitely a big red, but somewhat clean at least.

Rich malty notes with light alcohol, plum, roasted grain. Dark red-amber clear with thin head. Medium heavy body with medium-high carbonation. Sweet with brown sugar, heavy alcohol, and roasted grain. Nutty bitterness and a bit heavy at the end, but nice.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a dark red-amber color with a trace beige head and a slight amount of lacing. The aroma was faint sweet malts, fruit and a hint of caramel. The flavor was fruity with undertones of caramel, nut, oregano and sugar. The finish was long with caramel, nut and cherry lingering. Very smooth and somewhat full bodied - the alcohol was very well hidden. Tasty.
