Scipio's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Scipio (987) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Pours a darker red with a medium sized, bubbly, off white head. Aroma is enticing, being big on floral hops, grapefruit, pineapple, and orange. Taste is much more malty than the nose was. Lots of pine and some caramel maltiness reaches you first. The citrus impressions are lesser than in the aroma, but are still easily found. Aftertaste is pine and grapefruit. Quite bitter at the end as well. This one is full in body, with a thick mouthful, with some flatter carbonation. The alcohol in here does not hide. It hits you right away. This is a very good effort. It actually might be my favorite beer that Two Brothers has to offer, so pick this one up when you have the opportunity.

From BandC. For me, this was overly hopped, unbalanced and an syrupy. Serving: Bottle

DocJitsu (1928) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Pours a cloudy honey golden with a short off white head. Malty nose. Thick, raw mouthfeel. Drinks like a hoppy barleywine. Brewed tea quality in the flavor as well.

Tap at old chicago in Peoria,IL Pours deep red hue with a small soapy eggshell head and sparse lacing. Flavors are sweet caramel malt big bitter hops lite alcohol. The main thing is its a bit too sweet. Big bold bitterness on the finish with a slick big mouth feal. Big alcohol notes as well. Decent yet unrefined.

coachd (747) - Missouri, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Malty honey sweet aroma with dark fruit and some booze. Beautiful dark red color with a sticky ivory colored head. Tastes honey like as well, with slightly bitter hops soon to follow. A little bitterness in the aftertaste. Good smooth palate with a good amount of carbonation. This is really good. Why cant imperial red ale or red ale in general be its own category? American Strong Ale is way too broad.

jjgmd (2110) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Pours a rich red amber color with a long lasting beige head. Nose is sweet caramel, toffee and malt. Taste is sweet and fruity, with a nice confluence of heavy malt and lighter hops. Finishes very sweetly on the same tasting notes, dryly with mild lacing and a short finish . Nice ASA. Quaff Score 8 / 10

phaleslu (9926) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Draft at The Brass Tap - U Square, served in a flight. Pours a mostly clear orange-amber with a moderate off-white head that laces the glass while settling into a ring and an island of film. Citrus and tropical fruits, with caramel, faint rye, wheat, juicyfruit gum, and resin. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, resinous, malty mouthfeel. I thought Id had this one before, but its been a long time since Ive visited a Two Brothers offering.
