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.
