COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich caramel and oat sweetness combine with irresponsible amounts of citrusy, spicy dry hops in this deep ruby colored Belgian Imperial Red. Full bodied, warming and intimidating.

arminjewell (8632) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pour out of bottle, thanks Phil! Dark reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of red fruits into a bit of orange peel, slight grass and pine like notes in there as well. Taste was a mix of grass, pine, hints of orange into a bit of caramel, toffee, hints of bread, finishing slightly sweet, fairly bitter.

Deep amber red, one finger slightly red head. Smell is vibrant and super juicy with lots of citrus and tangy yeast notes, some caramel. Taste is woody, spicy, charred oak and roasted malt, oats, some citrus. Starts sweet, finishes dry. Refreshing fizzy palate.

ccex (1075) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2015
22 oz bottle pours a deep mahogany with big beige head and good lacing. Aroma is full of dark fruits and Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet. Body is full to medium with slight carbonation and a slightly soapy mouthfeel. This big beer did not disappoint at all.

ryecatcher (1018) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Pours a deep amber, hazy, massive off-white head with ridiculous retention and exceptional lacing. Nose is big crackery malts, resinous pine, hints of Belgian yeasty funk, some caramel, candied orange peel. Mouth is big and sticky, lots of moderately sweet malty character underpinned by a tanniny bitterness, some honey, caramel, pine, grass. Not sure if this shouldn’t be qualified as anything aside from an Imperial Red (in RB speak... an American Strong) or a DIPA, because other than a touch of aroma in the nose, that’s exactly what this comes across as... all I’m really getting is hops and malt. Not saying it isn’t good or drinkable, but this thing tastes about as Belgian as Egg Foo Yung.

Appearance: bloody red (very dark) Head: good 1" head and remains for a while. Leaves laces behind Aroma: caramel and hops (piney) Feel: low carbonation in mouth, light to medium Taste: caramel malts with mixed hops.. Chinook hop? Not sure.. Little spicy flavor as well. Well balanced and complicated. Enjoyed! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 ounce bottle. Caramel and hops. Bit of sweetness. Malty. A nice take on the style.

BVery (7964) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Tap at the taproom. Deep reddish amber pour with a clingy frothy light beige head. This is a really cool beer. Sweet juicy citrus notes playing off a caramel/boozy sweetness plus some spicy hops. Melds together well. Interesting and delicious.

Had this one at monkey paw. Pours a dark red incolor and has a fruity flavor and finish. Not much of an aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
