look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

snagged this in NJ earlier today.

a - opened the bottle and filled my E snifter. poured a nice rich reddish orange with a generous almost yellow white head. head hung out a while and was fairly chunky.

s - hops mixed with brown sugar. has an almost brown ale smell to it.

t - much like the nose, brown sugar but not too hoppy. in fact leads with the malt.

m - thick and creamy. kind of dopplebock like. smooth and easy to drink. no real bite.

o - overall very solid beer, but not so much a big hoppy monster, more of a big malty monster. imperial red is exactly what you get with this one.
