Cloudy red - brown beer, good pale tan head. Pleasant nose of mild vanilla and fruits. Slightly dry palate. Creamy malt. Mild vanilla oak (is this barrel aged?). Repressed orange and red berry fruits. Finishes creamy. Thought this was an Imperial Red - very nice whatever it is.
Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours dark, amber-brown with a substantial beige head. Aroma hints at sweetness, with notes of dark fruit, raisin, with some yeast, spices and caramel. Sweet flavor, malty with more caramel, cherry, some alcohol. Medium to full in body with lively carbonation. Finishes semi-spicy, warm, with yeasty malts, ripe cherries and plums. Very nice. jtclockwork (16600) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2011
Bottle. Pours burgundy. Light tan head. Nose of dates, yeast, basement funk and cherry pits. Taste is bittering hops, malt, cherries, dates and yeast. Very bitter. Not really a Flanders Red, but a decent strong ale.

750 c&c - but I didn’t note who shipped it. Likely South Bay Drugs. Pours dark ruddy amber with a foamy 4 finger light tan head. Aroma of cooked caramel through the head, hintof sourfrom the bottle. I hope. Med body/frothy carb. It’s not really very sour - just a hint. Basically it’s a very malty thing with some yeast/spice aspect and enough hop to moderate the malt. Imperial Flanders Red? That’s Dissident in my book. This is a good beer, but not exactly what I’d hoped. The rye aspect makes it fairly interesting. I can imagine a Brett aspect, but it’s pretty submerged.
