Pours a red amber color with white head and plenty of lacing. Caramel in the nose with rye like grain and citrusy hop profile.
Taste has caramel, grains, spice, and citrus. Balancing bitterness cuts all sweetness and leaves the beer slightly bitter. Full body and good medium high carbonation. An enjoyable brew that is drinkable and flavorful. Just found out its 9.5%, drinks like a much lighter beer.

Poured a amber copper body with good head and a lace ring. Aroma is citric hopped with touches pine/dirt, booze and malts. Beer balances high ABV, which gives beer a warming sensation and hot finish, with citric and pine hops along with faint touches of sticky caramel malt that aids beer in not being too hoppy or boozy. Nothing really popped out for me with this beer but it was enjoyable to drink.

Pours a dark reddish color with ivory colored head. Pine, dark caramel malt, bread, some floral notes, a little toast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes with malt.

I apparently paid $3.50 for this single. Hope it's worth it.

A - Color itself is a deep amber brown, clear with bubbles throughout (lively) and a 1/2 inch of sticky opaque colored head. Lacing is stellar.

S - Simone hops and caramel malts lead with bready base and some gram cracker.

T - Starts off with a citrus hop zest then caramel and gram cracker malts, sweet. Then comes the Simone which are somewhat harsh. clinging to the palate the seem to hide the ABV well which is appreciated in any DIPA or Imperial. Taste is balanced.

M - Medium to heavy you can feel the ABV but don't taste it.

Overall one of the better Imperial Amber Ales I have tried (obviously with the highest ABV) but with limited release I don't see a $3.50 charge to try it again.

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.
