poured 12oz bottle into pint glass. Lot 3364

A - Clear dark amber with a natural 2 finger natural eggshell head. Retention is excellent and only fades to a cap that leaves gobs of lacing on the glass.

S - Big amounts of toasty malts with sweet caramel. Hops are prevalent and bring in a pine and citrus notes.

T - Starts off quite sweet with candied pineapple and with caramel malts. Hops move in quickly with big notes of pine and hints of citrus. It is very similar to how a IIPA would start sweet, but have a big bitter finish.

M - Medium body that is stick and well carbonated. May seem syrupy with a bitterness that lingers on the palate. At 9.5% ABV, the alcohol heat is hidden.

O - A very big imperial red with a huge hoppy finish. I drank it as I would any big IIPA.

This style is always very pretty in the glass and Two Brothers does what it supposed to do - look appealing. It has a little head but nothing major.

The aroma is special. Uniquely slightly over the top, as an American should be. It has hoppy and malty aromas nicely mixed together. It does not smell too boozy.

The taste is a little thick and chewy with loads of malts and a bit of bitterness. Nice and complex. Again, the booze is well hidden (I had no idea it was this high until I saw it here).

The aftertaste is a lingering of the previous niceness with a bit of a booze burn.

Overall, this is a nice, high quality brew.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Pours an awesome completely transparent dark red with a 1 inch white head that lingers for a while, leaves minimal lacing. Nice visible carbonation.

Smell- Pine and grapefruit at first. Then I get some dark fruits as well as a bit of caramel and alcohol.

Taste- A bit of grapefruit and dark fruit flavor and then I get some burnt caramel flavor. Fairly bitter, the sweetness attempts to balance it but the bitterness overpowers it.

Mouthfeel- Great body and carbonation.

Overall- Good beer. Appearance is amazing and the smell has a nice complexity. The taste was a bit unbalanced with bitterness being fairly strong, but still an enjoyable beer.

A: The beer is crystal clear dark garnet red in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high light beige head that gradually died down, leaving a very thin head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with notes of pine resin. As the beer warms up, notes of alcohol also become apparent and somewhat mask the hops.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of citrusy and pine resin hops along with some notes of caramel from the underlying malts and faint amounts of initial sweetness. Moderate to strong amounts of bitterness are present, which intensify and linger through the finish. Some hints of alcohol become perceptible as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation and hints of warming from the alcohol.
O: Although the alcohol is relatively well masked from the taste (particularly before it warms up), the strong amount of bitterness makes this a beer that needs to be slowly sipped. It is a good beer for a cold winter night.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: a very nice looking, clear, ruby red beer with slick hoppy bubbles hanging around the rim of the glass at the top of the beer.

Smell: very nice. Citrus, pine, resiny hops with a bit of bready malt in there as well. All subtle and not very strong but well integrated together.

Taste:a nice mix of the citrus and pine/resin aspects of the smell with a nice "red" malt flavor as the base. A dry, resin and spicy finish that lasts for awhile.

Mouthfeel: nothing special here, medium body, slighty syrupy and astringent.

Overall: a very nice beer. I love the smell- great aspects that mix well and are subtle and not overpowering. A great mix of hop flavors over a good base of malt. When i started drinking this i was assuming 7-8%abv, was somewhat surprised to find it was almost 9:5%. As i drink more of it the abv becomes more apparent but not in a bad way. I only bought two singles but hope to pick up a few more or maybe a 6 pack before it disappears. Hope the they make this regular or at least seasonal offering.
