Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip. Oddly enough my can states this is an imperial red/amber ale...
A - Pours a nice crystal clear ruddy almost garnet hue with a nice two finger light light tan head that fades slowly to leave a thin half finger blanket. Solid.
S - Aromas of alcohol, light caramel, english hops. Not much hops, light cardboard. Just alcohol, caramel, and old hops.
T - Taste is similar to the nose, alcohol, caramel malts, light candy, old english hops. Odd, has certain barleywine like characteristics but its rather messy. Messy and dirty/old.
M - Mouthfeel is a bit heavy, but oddly enough the booze feel is hidden. Not bad.
O - Overall I'm not sure what to make of this one. The can states imperial red/amber ale (which if so this is a poor example of) , and the web states this is a strong ale. Either way, the malts were too forward in this beer. Not a huge fan, but, not a drain pour.
