I picked this up at Brass Rail, enjoyed in a willybecker poured from the 12oz brown bottle lot 3183.

The color is dark crimson with great clarity and pale tan cream with fine bead lace clings in a film. The smell is very good with a hop aroma similar to ruby red grapefruit with a mild caramal odor from the malt with slight mix of tropical fruit -papaya and fruity yeast esters in general. The feel is great a very good balance of malt with low sweetness more toast and citrus influence with mild acidity/bitterness in the middle and there is a mild alcohol presence in the finish which is semi-dry.

The taste is very good, nicely hopped with some pacific northwest flavor coming through that creates the flavor of ruby red just as the nose promised, very light bitterness, however that builds into a more imperial red taste as it warms with the malt flavor supporting in a nice fresh toasted but lightly caramel influence. The hop taste becomes more tropical and the element of alcohol detracts slightly however, a mild hint of berry emerges with it. Overall I would recommend this as it exceeded my expectations, very good red from a brewer I have a lot of respect for ever since my first taste of their beer at Dark Lord day in '08

Beautiful amber color. Mostly transparent. Rich off-white head with exceptional retention leaves large, ring-shaped patches of lacing all over the glass.

Rich caramel aroma. Mild toasty character. Hint of roasted almonds.

Smooth malty flavor. Biscuits and caramel. Nutty notes. Assertive earthy, herbal hop bitterness. Good balance. Hop presence leaves a tangy aftertaste.

Full-bodied, well carbonated. Smooth mid-drink with a semi-dry finish.

Good stuff. Surprisingly balanced considering the 124 IBU stated on the bottle.

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.
