This was actually pretty good, though closer to an IPA thanks to the high IBUs of the Imperial. Most reds these days tend to be fairly hoppy, and this was no exception, but it was still pretty smooth and drinkable. This is a solid offering from Wynkoop and one I would drink again.

Very solid amber style of beer, and as an Imperial Red Ale it has a good 8.2% ABV. Strong caramel notes on the front, but finishes with a touch of dryness. Almost like a more pronounced version of Odell's 90 Schilling. Definitely one of my favorite beers from Wynkoop Brewing.

Not bad but not great as well. Varnish-like smell ruins it.

Amber in color and fairly murky. There's a fingernail of khaki foam on top. Heavy lacing is present. I smell notes of pepper, amber malt, and citrus hops. I taste plenty of amber malt and citrus hops. The mouth is a lightly boozy and a tad syrupy.

Poured from a can into a standard shaker...

L: Produces a monster, sticky head, thick lacing, with a deep caramel color. Looks like a meal.

S: Honestly, not much of a scent. It's a little biscuity, and a few piney hop notes come through.

T: This is a malt bomb -- the deep caramel notes dominate, along with some sweet honey, biscuit, and hints of molasses. Otherwise the warm booziness and astringent alcohol is what lingers, and I'm searching for the hops but they're not there.

F: Heavy, thick body, verging on syrupy, and could certainly use a little more carbonation.

This was a fresh can, so I have to blame this on the beer. It's just not very good. It might satisfy if you like a heavy dose of sweet malt and don't mind the overbearing alcohol notes, but I found it to be incredibly unbalanced.
