Not what I was expecting. Super malty aroma, more like a barleywine. In fact, that’s what it tastes like too. Deeply roasty with a lingering dark fruit and burned toast character. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2017
From BandC. For me, this was overly hopped, unbalanced and an syrupy. Serving: Bottle DocJitsu (2060) - 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. nearbeer (5662) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 21, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Clear copper with a disc of foam. Nose is citrus, caramel and resin. Taste is caramel, resin, toasted grain and light citrus. Medium-plus body has smooth low-medium fizz and a decent balance. Terminus (3738) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 10, 2016

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.

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 can’t imperial red ale or red ale in general be it’s own category? American Strong Ale is way too broad.
