COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a heavy-duty 9% abv red ale with a profusion of hop flavor and aroma. This beer is as big and proud as Texas. Because we add almost two pounds of American hops per barrel very late in the beer making process, The Imperial Texan is able to retain a wondrously piney and resinous hop character that perfectly balances its smooth but strong and dry malt backbone. This beer has a sticky presence that puts each sip perfectly on the tongue.

12oz can poured into a Shaker. Color is a hazy amber with good carbonation and a small off white head. Aroma is roasted malt and a bit of hops. It has a medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor comes on a nice malt base with bold hops giving citrus, pine, and a bright bitterness. After taste is more bitterness abd the citrus turns to a fruity note. Overall its a good brew, I think its a well done interpretation of an Imperial Red.

Draught at the Flying Saucer, Ft Worth, TX as Martin House Texan (8%). Cloudy reddish brown color with a small off-white head. Sweet resiny hops, sweet caramel malt, moderate bitterness and sugary sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is dark hops, sweetness, strong bitterness.

Pours an opaque brown, thick head. Some caramel and brown sugar on the nose. Very malty, almost too much, overpowers the hoppy bitterness. This is a heavy beer, not my favorite but a solid ale.

BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Can at home. Pours a slightly hazy reddish gold with a persistent thin off white head. Aroma is very hoppy - pine, slight citrus, and more pine. Some maltiness also. Flavor follows. Very bitter. Really in the Imperial IPA but with a reddish hue. Nice beer. Sweet sticky finish.

This is the biggest beer I have tasted. The 100 IBU's really linger on the tongue. It's such a full bodied beer that you can sit on one can for an hour. Each mouthful is to be savoured as this is a flavour bomb. Totally divine. This is my favourite beer. And it's very good value for money.
