3.78/5 rDev +3.3%
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.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a slightly hazy reddish amber color with a two finger head of a just off white colored foam. The head has a moderate level of retention, slowly fading to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a bready and caramel smell mixed with some aromas of rye. Along with these aromas are a lighter showing of some hoppy smells being mostly of an earthy and pine nature and mixed with a little bit of grapefruit as well. Even while the nose was rather light overall, it was quite pleasant.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter caramel and rye bready taste. As the flavor moves on, the rye grows slightly stronger while the bready and caramel flavors all grow slightly lesser in potency. All the while hop flavors get stronger on the tongue. The hop start out predominantly of a grapefruit nature, but this flavor is soon lost as more flavors of pine and earth come to the tongue more toward the middle and the end of the flavor profile. Of the hop, the pine flavors get strongest at the end and with the mix of flavors that is there at this time, the profile ends up leaving a still moderately sweet but crisper, nicely hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. Both are fantastic for the crisper but still malty and sweeter flavors of the brew in combination with all the more savory hop flavors, and overall create a nice mouth coating feel by allowing all the hop and rye flavors to be soaked into the tongue.
Overall – A rather nice rye amber brew with a good blend of sweeter rye, bread, and hop. While not out of this world, it is a nice drinker none the less.
