3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very good red, pours beautifully and has a great aroma, head is slightly resinous but a strong alcoholic malty body balances well.
660ml bottle at home. Hazy dark orange with a medium white head. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Good bitterness with subtle fruity tones. Caramel, ripe red fruits, malts, pine, resin, citrus and some herbs. Tasty! j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2017

Strong caramel backbone for this imperial red. Really citrus and hop forward. Pretty good. laiti (8481) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2017
65 cl bottle @ RIP Laru campolio (10290) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Aroma has nice fruity tones and resin. Also fruit candy. Flavour has fruit candy, tropical fruits, resin and some minerals. A bit too dry but good stuff anyway.
65 cl bottle @ RIP Laru.

Pours clear mahogany color with a small head. Aroma is resinous hoppy caramel malty, bitterness, pine. Flavor is malty and resinous hoppy, some caramel sweetness, bitter palate. Not as old overall feel here as I expected. Good.
22 oz bottle. Thanks Timo A!bulldogops (2507) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
Slightly cloudy red color with a small light tan head.
Some sweetness, some stone fruit, malt and mild berries in the aroma.
The flavor is stone fruit, dryness, mild bitterness, hops and age.
Rating #1748- 2015.06.13 - Bottle from @AFICMyles - Pours a copper amber, and exudes hoppiness right from the get go, powerful citrusy, grainy, fruity hops on the nose. Medium heavy carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. ABV disguised by hop character. Extremely balanced, pleasant sweetness, smooth bitterness, crisp clean finish. Beauty!. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 11, 2016
Tap at Imazato. Sticky, hoppy resin. Bit sweet but with boozy kick. Bitterness. Some pine and a bit of citrus too. Nice.

Tap at Imazato. Nice citrus nose, cherry, some caramel. Brown-orange-red with lace. Rich malt flavor, caramel, oranges, peaches, some toffee. Nice balance. Good, but doesn’t carry its weight well. Tastes more like 7.5%. monk191 (1999) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 9, 2016
A nice imperial red overall. Pour a nice red with a white head. Smells of strawberry, oats and a hoppiness. Taste is piney and creamy, with lots of strawberry. Had on tap at the brewery.
