3.6/5 rDev -5.5%
Poured from a bomber into a perfect pint glass 11/3
Pours dark brown with red tint at the bottom. Fizzy bubbly white foam. Some lacing. Bready malt nose. Light pine too. Taste opens with a toffee malt backed with a firm strong hop. Hearty. Really long lasting bitter. Toasty flavor.

2.84/5 rDev -25.5%
10 oz pour on tap. It's a nice reddish amber color with a half inch head. The smell is caramel, butter, and toffee. I can't detect any hops, which is very disappointing for an "Imperial Red." The taste is similar to the smell, but even worse. So much caramel and toffee along with the bizarre buttery flavor that dominates the beer. This beer is FAR too malty. The mouthfeel is actually pretty spot on, but I had trouble finishing a 10 oz pour and I doubt I'll revisit a Peak Beer anytime soon (especially if this is their highest rated beer on here.)

3.9/5 rDev +2.4%
Poured into large pint glass. Was reddish brown, clarity was pretty good. Was not much of a foamy head. What was there, was cloudy white. Did not get much hops, but a very strong malt smell. Reminded me of a barleywine with its strong dark fruit and sugary smell. Body and mouthfeel is good, bit on an acidic taste.
The taste is good, with the malt dominant. It is good, but wasn't what I expected on a hot FL summer day. I would have probably really liked it on a cooler night.

3.15/5 rDev -17.3%
A: Pours out a clear, reddish brown color. Two fingers of tan colored head with low retention. Spotty Lacing
S: Sweet honey, with slight hints of pine and citrus.
T: Herbal and floral with a toffee malt backbone.
M: Medium carbonation and medium body that is slightly chewy. The beer seems a bit tannic.
O: It's not too bad. The tannic bitterness is very off-putting, unfortunately. Otherwise, the rest is solid.

4.01/5 rDev +5.2%
From the foil-topped 22 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on April 16, 2013.
It pours reddish brown with decent clarity and a full, foamy tan head that lingers throughout and leaves lacing clinging to the glass with each sip.
The nose is hopped up with very floral and flowery esters. Then there is also this cherry-fruitiness and inviting sweet malt note.
The body is a tad acidic but generally falls into the medium range.
The taste is much like the aroma with an abundance of floral (not earthy) hops and a difficult to define kind of fruity sweetness. It has a moderately lingering bitter finale bounced off a sweet kick. Well worth the $4.99 I paid for it.

4.05/5 rDev +6.3%
Nice rich amber red with a bit of haze. Soft off white lacy head, lingering with time.
Nose is very piney and resiny, with a hint of sticky sweetness.
Deep malty taste with flavors of pine, almonds, sap. Finishes with a potent dry hoppy bite. Only the slightest hint of booze.
Rich and full mouth feel, appropriate for the largeness of the beer.
A really nice imperial red overall. Nice complexity combined with solid body, all for an steal of a price. Great for the fall or spring.
