4.03/5 rDev +4.1%
A: half finger off white head on a slightly hazy deep amber body. Nice lacing
S: fairly malty and sweet once you really take this one in but at first the grapefruit and musty, earthy hops an be noted.
T: toasted and mildly smoked malts. Sweet caramel and toffee, hops are earthy and first moving to mild pine bitterness in the finish. The hops are actually fairly complex and dynamic and though this one initially feels malt forward the finishing hops balance this one out.
M: medium body and moderate carbonation.
Overall: not as good as g'knight or other imperial reds but one if the better beers I have had from this brewer.

22oz bottle with Bottled 9/2012 on the side. Pours a murky brownish amber color with very little head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is mostly of piney hops with some bread and caramel malts. The taste is a mix of the piney hops and caramel malts. Some vanilla towards the end. Not picking up on much of the oatmeal. Bitter, piney finish. Can definitely taste the ABV. Creamy mouthfeel. I dig this one a little more than Eagle Claw Fist. Overall, solid Imperial Red worth grabbing again.

22 oz bottle, served at 52 degrees, snifter.... bottled 08/2012
Nice beer, but served as last one of the evening, so unfair advantage noted...
A: Darker than expected. Brown, but not black. Nice foamy head initially, lacing throughout out, but sparse.
S: Toffee, malty, slightly boozy. balanced.
T: Nice, caramel, toffee, toasty with a slight hoppy edge.
M: creamy feel, nice carbonation. Heavy feel to the overall beer, but again, followed a HopSlam and a twin-sister DIPA.
O: Would buy more. nice beer.
