Pours out to a 3/4 " bubbly head and uniform lacing. Deep reddish amber color. Aroma is strong on caramel malts and dry hops as expected. Smells a bit dusty and cheesy suggesting this may not be very fresh (could not find a date on can). Flavor is toasty, sweet malts balanced by earthy, citrusy hops. Mouthfeel is medium to full. Overall a very good imperial red.

The look is quite hearty and thick with a cloudy maroon color and a brownish thick foam.

The nose is very malty with chocolate and toffee. I can smell tea leaves, rye grains and even a little hops.

The flavors are equally as hearty with a thick malt of chocolate and toffee, rye, subdued sweetness and tea leaves.

The feel is thick with a hop bitter finish.

This is right down my alley with a strong malt character that really showcases the chocolate, toffee and tea leaf flavors.

1 PINT can
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It pours a rust color with some burnt orange highlights. It is capped with two inches of tan head.

S - It is bready with some spice from the rye.

T - It starts out sweet. Then the rye builds and combines with the alcohol to warm and spice things up. There is also a slight bitterness.

M - Medium

O - It is as advertised, a malt forward red. It is flavorful, and the abv is nothing to sneeze at.

clever beer, and i love clever beer. a strong red ale, with a good hearty dose of rye malt, which delivers some spice to the grain bill and relaxes and counterbalances some of the sweetness. it is also remarkably hop driven, one of those rare beers that is both. very full bodied and only moderately carbonated. starts sweet, finishes hoppy, but more than just bitter, citric too, which bounces off the rye in a unique but complimentary way. heady in looks but I'm wishing for a bit more carbonation. i find myself wishing for a more excited carbonation level, but i also find myself impressed by the fusion of rye into this beer and its low key overall tone. good stuff here from a brewery that keeps impressing me with innovation and subtlety.
