look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

22oz, bottled 8/28/2014, 8.3% ABV
A 3.5 - ruddy brown colored ale with a thinner beige head that quickly fades to a foam
S 4.25 - big aroma with caramel, bread, pine, fruit, grapefruit
T 3.75 - bold flavors as well with sweet caramel, bread crust, tropical fruit, grapefruit, pine. Nice balance between both sweet and pungent.
M 3.5 - medium body, resinous, alcohol is quite hot and takes away from the experience
O 3.75 - I liked this, but wasn't crazy over it. Although I'm happy to have tried this one, I know of another Imperial red ale that I like more than this one - and it's half the price.

2014-09-06: Sample poured at the Kedzie brewery.

Pours clear, dark, brown-red. Smell is mild, roasty, with plenty of caramel.

Taste is strong pine bitterness and strong caramel or toffee.

Mouthfeel is thick and stick. Overall, quite good.
