3.72/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pours a dark amber color with a 1/2" head. Some lace paints the glass during the session.

Smell: caramel, malt sweetness, and some hop bittereness comes through to the nose.

Taste: caramel, bread, a strong bitterness, some citrus, and a bit of alcohol rounds out the flavor profile.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Light crispness throughout.

Overall: a nice amber ale with a bit of a boozy kick and nice bitterness.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a dark beige color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, some hops. Taste is caramel, alcohol, some hops, a bit on the boozy side. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

3.69/5  rDev -2.4%
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.
