3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Moriartys. Billed at 8.0%. Clear dark amber pour. Large head of off-white foam. Nice lacing. Medium-burnt caramel malts backed with a modest amount of earthy dry hops. Slightly burnt toast. Dark citrus. Mandarin peels. Mango. Blood oranges. Bitter marmalade. Aroma is a bit anticeptic. Flavor (and body) is full but the palate is pretty thin. Harsh but ABV is fairly well hidden.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I am not sure putting "poison" in the name is a good move. Dark amber body, medium sized creamy light tan head, spotty lacing. Caramel and toffee malts, grainy. One way to make a red ale worse is to make it an imperial red ale. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet finish.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
This rare/new beer from a can that says 8%. Somewhat volatile strong malty aroma. Looks a little viscous with creamy alabaster head. Slightly cloudy vanilla yellah. Taste is well, kick you in the teeth, knock you in the head, rototill into my tongue, warm down the throat. Big long drawn out high alky medicinal finish. Did I say this hides the alky well? Well, if you believe that I’ll tell you that chickens have lips. However, if you like high alky beers, don’t pay attention to my numbers. Give it a try. Typical american strong ale. BTW, I think I’m gettin dizzz - eeeeeeee. I guess its doing what it set out to do.

This one is a little too hop forward for me, but otherwise pretty good, though better Irish reds out there.
