3.68/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 16oz tall can into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: rich amber hue with a moderate haze. Head is several fingers of orange-tan foam; it's a pretty attractive beer.

Smell: sweet and caramelly with just a little bit of toast and a hint of alcoholic fruitiness. This is an imperial red done pretty well.

Taste: toastier and biscuitier than the aroma, but still with a good caramel character. Not 100% my bag, but a pretty decent beer.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a silky smoothness and a nice creaminess. I quite like the texture of this beer.

Overall: while it's not terribly my thing, this is a very well-made example of the style. Not bad at all -- plus, it doesn't drink like an 8% beer, so be advised.

4/5  rDev +6.4%

Appearance: Cloudy, amber/copper with big frothy tan head after aggressive pour. Long lasting head with good lacing

Smell: Big mix of aromas; malty with US hops and good citrus notes; something earthy and sweet I can't put my finger on, but smells really great; light hints of roasted grains and oak

Taste: Whatever I couldn't put my finger on hit me quick when I first sipped it; malty and sweet but the hops and roasted grain balance it out really well; hoppy dry lingering finish. Really quite good.

Mouthfeel: Creamy overall; expected for the ABV

Remarks: Excellent beer from my home state
