From BeerAdvocate Magazine #88 (May 2014):

Bold, Brash, Lively, Fun

A lively showing if maltiness in this Imperial Red Ale, thick layers of toasted grain and caramel take over the palate to start. Alcohol and hops keep things on an even keel here. Warming and malty throughout proof that it lives up to its style. Tastebuds are having way too much fun with this beauty.

Taste is pine, toffee, tree bark, and bread. This is a tasty and boozy, heavy amber ale. There is a slight bitterness that clings on. I enjoyed this one and would get it again if I was looking for the style.

Nice hazy dark copper, beautiful dense off-white head, Belgian lace everywhere. Creamy mouthfeel, perfect carbonation. Big malt backbone with a slightly boozy, earthy, citrusy, refined and subtle but assertive 80 IBUs. Hop heads should certainly not be disappointed with this one. Alcohol ninja at a stealthy 8%, goes down super easy. The 16 oz. cans will sneak up on you, but it deserves an Imperial pint glass to appreciate it properly. Overall its character reminds me of a cross between a red and an English bitter on steroids. Another winner from SPB, and an underrated classic.

Note: I'd like to take this opportunity to mention that a great beer doesn't always need 15000000 IBUs of cascade hops to give it character. There's more to life (and beer) than lupulin.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a dark beige color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, some hops. Taste is caramel, alcohol, some hops, a bit on the boozy side. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
