Poured from fridge temp. Pours a beautiful dark brown. Fairly murky. Looks like a nice barleywine upon first glance. Nose is dark fruit, bourbon, port, and toffee. Taste is caramel, bourbon, and dark fruit. Fairly sweet on the taste - perhaps a bit syrupy. My only complaint is that the sweetness is a bit high, but it's still very smooth. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Overall, a fantastic beer.

Picked this guy up at my local Bristol Farms, a solid find! And only $17. I dedicate this one to my puppy.

Pours a deep, hazy rust-hued Brown. Nice ivory finger of foam. Light but very even lace around the glass. Doesn’t stick around too long.

The nose on this is a very even combination of caramel, booze, molasses, malt, and dark fruit. Very well balanced. Great nose for an imperial red, reminiscent of a good barleywine profile.

Really great flavors on this beer. The caramel malts and molasses hit at first, followed by a 1-2 punch of dark fruit, predominantly raisin, and oak. You do get a nice hop presence throughout, and although subtle it really adds good character to the beer. Some spiciness settles in as well, and the cassia really goes so well with the oak, and compliments a brown sugar presence really nicely. In the finish the bourbon comes in strong. You get that booziness with just the slightest hint of peat and more of that charred oak. Great warmth.

The body isn’t too full, nice light but even carbonation. It finishes a little sticky, with that great boozy warmth.

Pours a murky muddy brown, hardly a red ale but maybe. Nose is a spice cabinet. Notes of cinnamon bark, cake mix, vanilla and wood. Taste like a baked good. Interesting. Definitely in the vein of a dessert beer. Very spice cake like. Clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, almond extract, vanilla and brown sugar with a bit of woody barkiness...is that a word? And smooth oak finish to it. A bit on the cloying side IMO but it’s good for what it was. Doesn’t really speak Amber or Red ale to me tho. Has similarities to winter ales although I’m not the biggest fan of those but Red Rover is interesting to me. Medium body with a slight bit of candied bourbon and heat on the finish.

L - This pours a murky raw apple cider color with khaki minimal head
S - There is a good amount of cinnamon with faint notes of bourbon and oak. A little bit of vanilla in the background.
T - The flavor is a good balance of cinnamon, bourbon, oak, vanilla and a hint if milk chocolate on the finish.
F - Great mouth feel. Creamy and a little sticky on the finish.
O - I think balance is where this is at. Reminiscent of a holiday spiced ale or winter warmer with the cinnamon.

Dark red appearance with little head. Slightly sweet aroma with a little cinnamon accent. Taste is also a slightly sweet with a touch of cinnamon and apple.
