COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned, Special;
Imperial Red Ale
"My goodness", muttered Claus, recalling his visit to the Institute, "the restrictive outerwear, the padded room-even padded Christmas tree ornaments. Horrifying! Yet the little chap seems happier than hes ever been" Claus took a thoughtful sip of a most warming red ale. "Perhaps sanity is over-rated...Ho,Ho,Ho!"

Its really not to bad. A sweet and mild backbone with a nice amount of alcohol. Its masked pretty well. A little heat at the finish but its mostly sweet. To me, it deserves a higher rate for handling >11% pretty well.

Bottle at Mum and Dads, 26th December 15. Pours straw yellow. Aroma is catamel, hops, fruit booze. Taste is sweet and bitter, quite impressed by this one, kind of a Belgian strong

Bottle to tulip. Hazy red with a thin off white head. Aroma is molasses and lots of dark fruit. Flavor is brown sugar, apples, and more dark fruit. Average mouthfeel and sticky. Good beer.

Terrible beer. Claims to be an imperial red, but there is nothing red about it. Listed as a barley wine, but it tastes more like a corked glass of wine. Huge disappointment.

andrewje41 (3269) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2015
12 Oz bottle poured. Oily orange pour with a soapy bubble head. Odd malt aroma. Flavor is a big alcohol up front, with a cool finish. No interesting or appealing flavor here. Bottle conditioned rubbing alcohol. Poured.
