Imperial Red was originally brewed in 2008. It is deep copper chestnut in color with toffee, brown sugar, nuts and spice aromas. A rich supple entry leads to an off-dry medium-full body of tangy raisins and citrus marmalade, bittersweet chocolate, and mild spice flavors. It finishes with a long nutty, fruity fade.

Malts: Great Western Harrington, Klages, Hugh Baird Crystal, Black, Munich, Chocolate and rolled oats. Hops: Willamette, Cascade and Chinook. Yeast & Water: Rogue’s Pacman Yeast & Free Range Coastal Water.

Backlog rating 1-02-2009 (Flip Top Bottle) This beer has a medium sized fizzy beige head that mostly diminished, cloudy body, visible carbonation, and an orange-brown hue. The Aroma is malty, toffee, spicy, some hints of caramel, nutty, sweet, and citrus hops. The Flavor is malty, sweet, citrus hops, spicy, fruity, nutty, and the ABV comes through. The Palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, is worth trying, a beer that not only will I drink again, but a beer I recommend.

This was delicious with roast grain and some caramel sweetness, maybe chocolate, not enough hops, while not required by the style required by me

Lemke10 (913) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a dark reddish brown color with a light brown head of foam. Scent of bitter malts and hops are the most evident. Has a rather thin texture with an almost burnt wood taste to it. Some sweet caramel malts to it with an almond hint. Not my favorite of Rouge beers. Certainly unique tasting but not my kind of beer. Glad it was only a 7oz beer.

umich03jm (2897) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours a dark murky amber color with with a small bubbly head that quickly fades. Aroma is brown sugar, caramel, toffee, and spice. Taste is slightly sweet caramel and toffee with a light spiciness. Finish is pretty smooth, more caramel and a bit of chocolate and nuttiness. Pretty solid but not worth the price for the small bottle.

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 27, 2012
Bright red in colour with no head. Chocolate/hoppy aroma. Floral caramel flavour. Nicely balanced beer, not too overpowering of hop or alcohol.

swigswthwolves (74) - Michigan City, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Pours dark copper with almost no head. Smells of a complex blend of alcohol and malt. Definite notes of chocolate and brown sugar with an intense bite. A big beer that I could easily drink as a sessional.
