4.1/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Surly Darkness Chalice.

Appearance: Pours a very deep and dark amber ruby red with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of off white head that quickly fades away. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A fairly sweet and very malt forward aroma. Toasted malts with big hints of caramel, toffee, and biscuit. A nice whiff of rye spices. A little molasses and hints of dark fruits including dates and cherry. Light hint of apple. Hop presence is very subtle with some light hints of grapefruit and grass. The caramel malts stand out the most here.

Taste: Like the smell indicates, a very malt forward taste with subtle hints of fruits and hops. Toasted malts with a big taste of sweet caramel, toffee, and bready biscuit. A solid kick of rye spice. Some burnt sugar and hints of fruits including apple, dark cherry, and dates. Hops are laid back but do provide some balancing bitterness with some notes of grapefruit and earthy grass. A bready taste that is very double bock like.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Rich, sweet, and somewhat chewy. Finish is somewhat drying.

Overall: A good malt forward brew. Not what you might expect from a typical hopped up red. This is very malt forward and bready. Its good at that.

3.76/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 750 mL bottle into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a murky golden caramel brown (hint of orange with backlighting). Just a wisp of white head.
S: Sweet caramel malt, nutty, and toasted grains.
T: Sweet caramel malt, fruity esters, toasted grains, and a hint of citrus.
M: Silky smooth and sweet. Medium body.
D: A very drinkable and fairly straight-forward imperial red ale. The fruit note in this one is very interesting...at times berry-like, other times more candi sugar, and even melon-like.

3.3/5  rDev -17.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from the bottle a dark orange-amber with no head.

Aroma of sweet caramel malts, tea, and booze.

The taste had a watered down booze thing going on with a really sweet tea finish.

Medium bodied and wet with a flat carbonation.

I didn't really enjoy this beer. Too sweet and too flat.
