pours a cloudy dark brown with a large light beige head, and great lacing.
smell is of rye, some sweetness, a little wild yeast comes through, and musty.
taste is smooth, malt, yeast, citrus, hops, and a touch of caramel, ends a little dry. williamstome (1909) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2012

750 ml bottle corked and caged poured a clody amberish red color, aromas of light coconut, light tart fruuit, some caramel and pine. Flavors are the same, light cherry added in the flavor, interesting beer, lots going on here. Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Cloudy reddish amber with a thin off white head. The nose, the palate, everything is American oak. Even the texture is woody. Some malty flavor pokes through, but this needs more time. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Tap @ Taphouse Grill, Seattle. Clear deep red with a creamy dense white head. Aroma is almost all sweet caramel with just a hint of citrus. Flavor again is dominated by caramel malt, low hop bitterness and no sourness at all. Medium to full body and lots of residual sugar. WTF, Imperial Flanders Red, more like sweet caramel sugar bomb, me no like. There is no way they intended to make this mess.

Bottle at WWBA ’12 Brooklyn. Rich bourbon and coconut in the nose. Prickly mouthfeel. More hoppy than I expected with sweet coconut and tangy pickle juice. thewolf (12706) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. [thanks after4ever]Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - APR 4, 2012
Pours deep red amber with a big, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is floral, peach, grapefruity, resin, fat caramel and red berries. Light spicy pepper. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good sweet caramel, light biscuity, a hint of milky chocolate and raspberries. Fairly vinious and quite bitter with herbal, piney, citric hops bite. Nice beer.
Hazed amber orange with chunkies. Aroma of spicy yeast, citrus, dough, fruit. Taste has a nice balance of sweet and light bitterness. Not overly sweet, the alcohol is not overpowering, lightly floral, pretty good stuff. portableparty (2366) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2012
750ml bottle. Pours cloudy copper in color with a sudsy off white head that fades to a soapy film. Aroma ha a mix of caramel yeast and dark fruit and some piny hops. Taste is bitter and funky like pine cones and grapefruit peel with some caramel trying to balance it all out, but the alcohol and hops are winning. Palate is medium and a little astringent with a drying finish. This is not bad at all, but I would not buy again! pellegjr (396) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2012
