Opaque muddy red-orange with a carrot head. Smells like sweet caramel, syrup. Taste is biscuit, caramel, herbal, cream. Long finish. OK.

22oz bottle shared by Anndiesel. Thick amber-burgundy body. Respectable beige head...sticks around. Piny hops and amber malt aroma. Could you call this a Barleywine? Definitely. Pretty well done Imperial Amber as it were. Rich and sweet, quality feel. Cherry amber wood with a nice dry hop character that coats your palate into the aftertaste. Has that almost woody vanilla tinge. Pretty enjoyable beer.

Draft pour. Big malty flavors, some really dense toffee cracker in there, plenty of hops but not enough.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bomber. Pours a reddish brown color with a small, off white head. Aroma of nice, fresh hops, some caramel and red malt notes. There is an empowering fruitiness and mild tropical hop notes. Flavor is bold, full bodied, with fresh hop and nice layered spicy malt notes. A moderate bitterness throughout -- it displays some sweetness manifesting itself in fruit and cereal malt notes. Full bodied, average carbonation. This is a nice, impressive offering from Urban Legend!

Taster at the tap room, with further describes this as "Imperial ’Redd’ Ale," suggesting it’s a stronger version of the "I’m Coming to Join You Elizabeth." This reminded me favorably of Oskar Blues’ G’Knight. Reddish beer under some very leggy foam. The smell starts out with warming alcohol and doesn’t let up much. Taste is big and sticky with toast red ale malts, and again, plenty of fresh hops this close to the nest. Most intoxicating sample on my tray so far.
