COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mammoth imperial red ale leads with a tantalizing hop aroma that is quickly complemented by an enormous malt backbone. Finishing with a multitude of hoppy goodness, this “Monster Beer” is truly not for the faint at heart.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown amber with a light brown head. Aroma is largely caramel and roasted coffee, with some grapefruit notes and hints of soy sauce as well. Very creamy, rich mouthfeel for this style. Great balance between the bitter and sweet flavors. I wasn’t anticipating the creamy/coffee influence, but it plays very well with the citrus. Far exceeded my expectations.

From a 2009 4-pack, for which I think the Liquor Loft here in Tallahassee charged me about $900. Sweeter by a bit than usually I like as the hops nearly but don’t quite balance the malts. Caramel and raspberry. First few sips hoppier and less sweet somehow than the last. Tasty nonetheless.

On-tap at the Mellow Mushroom. Poured a beautiful deep red with a nice creamy white head that lasted all through the beer with lacing that reminded me of a Guiness. The aroma was very grassy, lots of hoppy scents. And the flavor, imagine mixing a grapefruit drink with a truly well balanced IPA. The mouthfeel was characterized by a bite of mild carbonation mxed with a smoopth creaminess. Excellent beer if you want something to sit back and sip down without being assaulted by any unwanted flavors.

Whoa! 12oz bottle. Pours a dark, reddish color with a big fluffy head. The aroma is flowery and hoppy but it didn’t really give me a good idea of the punch this packs. This is a well balanced but very dry, bitter brew. Very well done! I wish I could get this regularly.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Pours a light copper. super tasty. Aroma of caramel, pine, and hops. Hop heavy, but that goes without saying. Fruity malt in the front hop bite in the back. one of my favorites from Terrapin.

Hazy, dark red/amber. Sweet malty, yet hoppy aroma. Caramel, molasses, bitter fruit flavor. Very nice!!

Thanks Blake for this beer. I drank it a while ago and haven’t rated it so this is from memory. What I remember was primarily that I would love to aquire some more of this. I believe it was my first imperial red. Lots of citrus-iy hopps in the nose. Taste is thick and hearty. Very nice.

I was very impressed with this beer. The look and aroma are great and all, but the taste of this brew is unique and fantastic. Very hoppy (of course), a little raisin, toasted wheat, fig... just a whole lot of greatness in the taste of this. A perfect session beer. Try one!

Beautiful dark red color, starts off smooth and malty on the palate but finishes sharp and dry.
