This big beer is on the darkest side of the spectrum, well beyond amber at a dark brownish red, bright despite its darkness but only transparent because of its complete clarity. The chunky tan head manages a full finger and settles there, and patching sticks to the glass as it follows the fluid down.
This is an aromatic red, and it makes one wonder why it has to be such a middle-of-the-road style. This beer has far more character than its many pedestrian counterparts; not only is it hoppier, it also has a stronger malts presence and just a big bouquet overall. Pine gives way to orange peel and lots of it, bitter and zesty. Heady and resinous, it achieves balance in a big caramel sweetness, lots of toast and bread crust that follow alongside it almost from the beginning.
The taste continues exactly the same pattern but switching the order, malts hitting the tongue first and hops coming alongside. It's just as big but balanced, so much flavor in this beer. Pine, orange zest, some grapefruit, and a bit more from leaf and lemon notes hit the tongue. The same balance is kept as lots of caramel and toffee add sweetness, toasted breads and crust adding depth. Every single sip gives a big dose of both hops and malt.
Big crispness hits the medium-full body up front and continues through as it goes creamy smooth on the tongue. (1,340 characters)

Pours a translucent copper with ruby highlights. One inch white dense bouncy head. Spider lacing throughout.

Dank. Picking up on pineapple, mango, papaya, caramel malt and pine.

Bitter brew laden with with alcohol. Very sweet upfront also. Fruit getting lost in the resinous hop. Deep malt backbone and pine.

Medium mouthfeel that is creamy. Hops and alcohol dominating.

We Americans sure crave a high ABV and for me it's getting a bit tiring. This is sure a sipper that gains a locomotive alcohol as it warms-not necessary. Why is this so expensive?-anywhoooo, big on sweetness, hops, complex malt and alcohol. Aging this will produce a Barleywine. May be better on tap. (675 characters)

Appearance: Great foam; beer is a heavy, thick brown.

Smell: Lots of oak. Some fruity alcohol as well. Smells a bit like boozy cider.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Strong oak and fruit. Very boozy. Lots of licorice and some plums and apples. Creamy and velvety mouthfeel.

Overall Drinkability: Excellent. (294 characters)

The revelry imperial red is amazing and is in competition with cane and ebel as my favorite beer from two bros! The beer pours a clear rich amber with a thin frothy head that is lacing like a Vicky secret catalog. The smell is powered with piney citrus hops. The taste is a beautifully balanced beer of caramel malt with California hops. The mouthfeel is full body with smooth carbonation. Overall the beer is awesome...only problem is that I want to drink a ton of it but it is loaded with abv!!! (497 characters)

Lot 3374 ( put a damn date on it) pours an effervescent orange/auburn color with 3 fingers of cream colored head. Through the roof lacing & head retention

S: Rich toastyness, not much else, faint hints of citrus. Pineyness picks up as this warms

T: Follows the nose, a little dryness, brown sugar, ghost boozeyness, leafy & herbal hops. A little resiny pine, grapefruit rind, dryness, toastyness & brown sugar all come through as this warms. Finishes dry, sweet, with a little resiny

MF: Starts out thickish, then settles into medium body as this warms. Carbonation seems subtle then turns creamy as it warms; nice balance

Drinks fairly easy for the heft, seems way more balanced than the touted 124 IBU. Another winner from Two Brothers (753 characters)
