Poured into a pint glass at the great northern brewery. Designated as an Imperial ale but I know for a fact that it weighs in at 8% which somewhat challanges its Imperial denotation. More of a strong red ale or American strong. Off the bat its a copper brown, extremely thick and cloudy(must be a new batch). Thin creamy pale head, little bubbles. Aromas of sweet caramel malt, bready rye and light herbal hops. Barely noticeable. Rye malt, toasted sweet malt, caramel and dark fruit. Hop bitterness is present but doesn't override it. Yummmy. Mouthfeel is exceptional, this elemant is where it nabs peeps. Medium to heavy carbonation complements large malt character while the hops creep in for an off-dry finish. Quality crowd-pleasing brew that I know the locals are fond of. Thx

This one is listed as an "Imperial Ale". Upon further questioning the bartender was incapable of explaining exactly what that is. I'm listIng this as an American Strong, though it could pass for an IPA. If anyone finds out anymore about this beer, please update.
Deep clear copper in color. Served with aminal bit of off white hwas that reduces to just a thin surface coating. No lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, citrus and a little pine. Flavor is similar, though on the lighter side with light caramel malts dominating over the piney hops. Medium bodied. Mild to moderate bitterness. Medium carbonation.
Overall a decent beer. Was told this is the strongest beer they brew (which is pretty weak), but it is what it is. Still a pretty good beer, easily drinkable,, but far from a great one.
