COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Commercial Description: Part of our limited release high gravity series celebrating our twentieth anniversary (1989 to 2009) Double Dread Imperial Red (An American Strong Ale) is a high gravity red ale brewed with Two-Row Pale Malt, complimented by Aromatic and Wheat malts and a blend of CaraMunich, Carastan and Crystal malts for color, complexity and flavor. Fermented with our signature ale yeast, this hop bomb of a red ale is bittered with Colombus and Cascade hops, flavor and aromatics are enhanced by Cascade, Chinook and Amarillo, then generously dry-hopped with a tri-fecta of Cascade, Amarillo and Chinook for zesty citrus aromatics and a resinous flavor explosion. For those who chose to indulge their courtly passions be forwarned that this royal ruby refreshment ferments out at 8.6% a.b.v and nears triple digit IBU’s

[email protected] Twist, Stockholm. Ambery red colour, small beige head. Aroma is caramel, wood, alcohol and some mild notes of grass, herbs and spices. Flavour is quite much he same. A rather imperial alcohol bomb that really bites. OK, but a bit too IPA like, ina bad way.

omhper (25808) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2009
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Hazy copper colour, fair sized head. Roasty perfumy nose. Mid-sweet with clean, vital body. Roasty and salty, very hoppy, notes of tangerine. Strong but unassaulting bitterness. Somehow condensing what’s good about US microbrewing.

Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Intense biscuity crystal malt aroma with quite some hops. Rich body, loads of sweet caramel, nutty with a massive hop load - not crisp and fresh hops though. Quite some warming alcohol. Very American! 030612

fiulijn (21399) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2009
Bottle at Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Hazy amber color. Caramel aroma, sweet, malty and a bit yeasty; lightly grassy too. Medium body; caramel aroma, leaning to the dry side, not very interesting; but the hopping is a bit fruity and improves the flavor; the final shows some toffee and light residual sweetness. Good, but not impressive.

jtclockwork (17375) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Bottle thanks to drowland. pours reddish brown with offwhite head. Nose and taste of hops, pine and caramel malts. A little yeasty and earthy on the nose.

3.6
brokensail (16670) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 29, 2013
Dark amber/light brown pour with a khaki head. Sweet caramel malt, chocolate, toffee, and hints of brown sugar. Some nice grapefruit, tangerine, and orange hops. Big pine character, too. Interesting cherry notes. The flavor is fairly sweet and malty, but also some nice hops. Grapefruit and orange, lots of pine, moderate bitterness, and cherry fruitiness. Sweet caramel, chocolate, brown sugar, and toffee.

bhensonb (15843) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. I’m in CA. MRB is in CA. So to get this it has to go to the East Coast and back to the West Coast! Life is so strange. It pours a lightly hazy ruddy color. Smells like celery and cooked malt. ?? Full bodied. Frothy carb. Flavor is like lots of roasted malt - smooth roast - and so much hop bitter it’s not to be believed. Hop is likely resin/floral. The malt roast is just that. This is pretty extravagant stuff.

3.9
Ratman197 (15452) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2011
On tap at Hops and Pies poured a hazy reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, pine and grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, pine, grapefruit and light orange with a crisp dry lingering bitter grapefruit finish.
