look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Poured into a pint glass with a dark red body with some nice ruby hues around the edges where light comes through. A creamy, two finger head forms nicely in the glass. Head retention is quite good. Nice rings of lace around the glass.

S- Reminds me of a hoppy Barleywine and less hoppy DIPAs at the same time, it has malty and hoppy characteristics. Pine, orange peel and flowery hints come from the hops. Nutty, caramel, sweet and toasted grain aromas as well.

T- Follows the nose but maybe even more malt comes out here. It has that distinct deep caramel, toasted nutty flavor you find in many 8%+ ABV Amber Ales. A bit of an alcohol edge some Barleywines have but it is nice. Hops are substantial with a pine forward profile with notes of citrus zest as well.

MF- Moderately thick body with a silky overall consistency. Carbonation is at a moderately low level and it helps the flavors this way. Fair amount of bitterness and alcohol warmth in the finish.

Now I miss this brewery even more. This is a new one to me but a beer I would drink again for sure. Anytime I have fresh Two Brothers products I am more and more satisfied by the brewery overall.

Had on-tap at Two Brothers Roundhouse in Aurora, IL.

Server said it was 12% ABV but BA says it is 9.5%, so i don't know which is correct.

This beer is very good! It is a little bitter but not too over the top. The alcohol is hidden very well. I can tell it is a red ale with the rye notes.

This is a solid beer that should be tried by all.

3.95/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a crystal clear deep garnet red in color with some amber highlights and light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense creamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit peel hops along with some lighter notes of pine hops. Very light notes of caramel malts and some hints of alcohol as the beer warms up.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of caramel malt sweetness underneath the moderate to strong flavors of pine hops and citrus/grapefruit peel hops. There are moderate amounts of bitterness and light notes of alcohol in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth with a small amount of alcohol warming as the beer warms.

O: This beer is a big beer and is enjoyable but is not the easiest to drink (especially as it warms up and the alcohol becomes more pronounced). There is an aggressive bitterness combined with the high ABV that makes this one have to be sipped rather slowly.

4.55/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours a crystal clear maroon/amber into my Ithaca Excelsior tulip. A thin bubbly head floats atop and fades away leaving a nice bit of sticky lacing clinging to the sides of the glass. Not much in the way of carbonation.

S- Sweet caramel, mango, grapefruit, and huge doses of pine sap/needles/bark. The alcohol shows it's head, but is pretty much covered up by pineapple and citrus. It has a touch of burnt sugar, green tea and spicy rye as well. I could sit and smell this all day.

T- Pineapple covered in caramel and rolled in pine needles and weed. Pungent Florida citrus blends well with the tropical fruit sweetness and piney hops. The alcohol is present, but not dominant. Nice notes of mild tea.

M- Pungent and dank but with a nice sweetness and caramel thickness. Glides down your throat and hangs onto your tongue nicely.

O- This is really fantastic! I'd been waiting and wanting to grab this since it came to my area a couple of weeks ago. Not sure it'll make my regular rotation at $16.99/6, but I'll be happy to grab this a few times a year. I can see drinking this next to my fire place as I am now, or out at my grill with some chicken and shrimp this summer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
