4.08/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear russet color with a three inch head that delivers nice lacing action

Smell: Roasted onions, caramel and pine

Taste: Layers of flavor, with the caramel elements dominant but the onions and pine layering underneath by mid-palate and coming on strong, after the swallow; in the finish, the bitter elements are held in check by the residual sweetness on the tip of the tongue; a hint of mint lingers in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Like the Red, the Imperial Red has some unique elements to the flavor profile

Thanks, sunkistxsudafed, for the opportunity

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Picked up a bomber in late March from Total Wine for $6.29. Mfg Date of 11-27-13.

Beer poured deep amber with a large off white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is grapefruit zest and toasted malts.

Taste starts with a huge toasted caramel malt backbone balanced nicely but a big grapefruit hop. After taste is piney.

Mouthfeel is huge, full and viscous; very satisfying.

Overall this is a delicious brew! I would love to try it fresher to see how it compares!

A - 4 - This is a reddish brown clear beer that has an off white head that leave nice lacing.
S - 4 - Nice caramel malts balanced by piney, citrusy hops. Very sweet smelling. Great Imperial Red aroma. Reminds me of G'Knight.
T - 4.25 - Oh man, this one is good. The citrusy, orange zest, grapefruit hops start, with nice sweet caramel malt in the middle and piney, citrusy, bitter grapefruit on the back of the tongue at the finish.
M - 4.25 - Medium-heavy, full bodied. Alc covered well. Aftertaste is bitter grapefruit and sweet malt.
O - 4.25 - What can I say, this is a great beer. It's about the same price/oz as OB G'knight, and honestly, I'd have to have them side by side to figure out the subtle differences between the two. Great imperial red. I'm glad I had it.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: pours a deep red that's almost brown with a dense three finger off white head that retains very well
S: pine and citrus with a little bit of caramel. slightly earthy. nice hops in the nose and just a hint of sweetness
T: piney hops up front with some nice caramel malt. slightly spicy with a bit of citrus plus a bit more caramel flavor and a bit bready. swallow brings more pine and oily hop goodness
M: medium in the mouth with a silky smooth mouthfeel with slightly prickly carbonation
O: great flavors, great appearance, great smell. a very solid beer that's a pleasure to drink.
