22oz bottle in Seattle. Dark grainy, vinous brown. Small soapy head. Deep caramel and dense pine hop, rich and tasty. Sparkling body, dense caramel and fudge. Hops are dense and alcohol fueled. Rich, lovely tasting beer. Heavy, but a nice treat.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours dark amber, almost porter dark, with solid head. Had on tap at the source in Junea on a brewery tour. Starts light and builds on finish which I like. Slightly boozy but wears it well. A good solid amber especially for an imperial which are tricky.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a reddish gold with a thin head and aromas of caramel, lemon and a little grassy herbal undercurrent. Flavor is big and bold with lots of juicy fruit flavors and a caramel-like backbone from the malt. ABV is a bit warm and this is simply a nice beer after a long day!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The 2.4 may be actually on the high side for my rating. Pours a nice red color and downhill after that. Bitter tasting beer that I could barely finish!
