Pours a nice, pretty dark amber color with a fluffy white and slowly dissipating head. Lots of bubbles cloying to side of the glass.

Smell is up-front malt and caramel. It is then followed by the presence of both citrus and pine. The alcohol inevitably present in a nearly 9% abv beer is also noted on the nose.

Taste is malty with both caramel and biscuit presence. Also sweet, bitter, and piney (both citrus and piney resins are once again notable.) Very nice hop presence and very flavorful.

Medium carbonation with the sting of citrus/hops always evident with this one.

Overall this is a very, very nice beer. This is not your father's amber or red ale. Of course it is an imperial red ale, so a bit different from the standard variety. Still, this is very impressive all around. Very nicely done with flavors, hop balance, and drinkability. The high alcohol percentage limits the number of this beer one can drink in a sitting, but still this one worth having on hand on a regular basis.
