My first review from my notes during my week in Texas. This was a part of a sampler flight at the Common Table in Dallas.
(A)- Pours a clear reddish amber hue. Some good froth and lacing left behind.
(S)- A lightly spicy rye/wheat profile. A good sweetness underlying it with caramel and a subtle smokiness.
(T)- Similar to the smell, only more/better showing in the hops area. A big and vibrant sweet rye-like caramel spiciness with a nice finish of citrus and pine.
(M)- A nice carbonation level and balance. A great showing of what an imperial amber can be like while still having a nice hop profile. Mildly bitter.
(O)- This is a big favorite down here since you see it everywhere. Definitely seems like an imperial red ale meets the catch-all style of an american strong. Definitely an enjoyable malty treat.

On tap at the Holy Grail Pub in Plano. The beer pours a hazy orange-brown color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of sweet caramel notes with some cherries and dark fruit, as well as a little bit of pine. The flavor is more of the same. I get some pine and orange notes from the hops, as well as some caramel and cherries. The alcohol is definitely present, but doesn’t hinder the drinkability. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
