oobawa (1586) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Solid red hop monster, a deep, sugary mix of caramel and toffee malts and a vicious amount of piney, resinous IBU vitriol. A bit of a one-trick pony, juxtaposing the gooey sweet center with a bone-dry, endlessly bitter back end without developing much other complexity in the flavors, but both sides are done well, and the creamy, slick texture’s absolutely amazing. (Hard to grasp how a beer this smooth could be 10%.) I do wish the hops brought forth a little more citrus, maybe some dankness to play off the caramel, but damned if this pint isn’t disappearing fast as hell despite my issues. Caramel nose with a touch of booze, and the appearance is gorgeous, a deep red-orange with a neverending beige head and multiple strata of lace. Tasty beer.

DarkMagus (547) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 18, 2017
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a thin off white head. Aroma of resinous pine, caramel, and dried dark fruits. Flavors were rich and malty with loads of resinous piney hops. Lots of caramel, dried dark fruits, toasted cracker, a hint of smokiness, and some sweetness. Good carbonation, full-bodied mouthfeel with a slightly slick finish. Well balanced, very clean/seamless beer. Alcohol is hardly noticeable. Excellent.

Braudog (6791) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Bottle. Holy crap, this is a BIG beer from all angles. Thick and ruddy with a sturdy head. The aroma is downright scary, rife with some woodsy hops and malt. The beer drinks like chewing on bark and hops. I already had a lot of hair on my chest ... I think there’s more. (#6671, 6/23/2017)

Draft at Mellow. Pours a clear amber with a finger of foam that lingers. Very light nose, bit of pine, orange. Smooth and well balanced. More orange popsiclevas it warms. Bitter, piney and nice. Well done.

On tap in Greenville SC in a Gouden Carolus glass. Clear dark amber body with a large, semi-durable beige head. Aroma: hops, toffee, soft ripe fruits. Flavor: as the aroma suggests, this is fruity. Also boozy. Typical (or a bit higher) bitterness for style. Feel: the body is medium; medium+ carbonation. Mild alcohol warmth. Overall: fruity imperial red.
