The original Monster better than ever…. Oaked Big Hoppy Monster Imperial Red Ale pours a luscious garnet color. Expect this brew to lead with big American-style hop aroma, quickly complemented by a monstrous malt backbone rounded with rich oaky notes and hints of vanilla. A bit of alcohol warmth and a multitude of malty goodness, with just a snarl of hop bitterness, awaits at the finish. This enormous beer will go down smooth… but watch out; this Monster bites!
