3.7/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip. Oddly enough my can states this is an imperial red/amber ale...

A - Pours a nice crystal clear ruddy almost garnet hue with a nice two finger light light tan head that fades slowly to leave a thin half finger blanket. Solid.

S - Aromas of alcohol, light caramel, english hops. Not much hops, light cardboard. Just alcohol, caramel, and old hops.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, alcohol, caramel malts, light candy, old english hops. Odd, has certain barleywine like characteristics but its rather messy. Messy and dirty/old.

M - Mouthfeel is a bit heavy, but oddly enough the booze feel is hidden. Not bad.

O - Overall I'm not sure what to make of this one. The can states imperial red/amber ale (which if so this is a poor example of) , and the web states this is a strong ale. Either way, the malts were too forward in this beer. Not a huge fan, but, not a drain pour.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #87 (Apr 2014):

Intense, Tobacco, Caramel

Due South took the the American Strong Ale style seriously, nothing willy nilly here. Browned apples and thick caramel meets toasted bread with warming alcoholic esters is the running theme. Full attack on the palate. A very brash canned craft beer option.
