3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber color and pours with a really nice thick fluffy tan head. A good amount of scattered lacing sticks to the glass. This is big on the malts for sure, with a lot of sugary toffee and caramel. Slick and fairly sweet going down but with enough resinous hops to give it some balance. Itís got some roasty bitterness thatís welcomed, although it still gets a little sticky in the finish. Not even close to Batch 3 sticky sweet. Just a hint of leafy citrus mixes in. Iíll be the first to tell you I donít really find the idea of an Imperial Amber all that appealing but this one is a pretty good beer. Doubt Iíll have it again but I did enjoy it.

Sample at the tap room. Pours a rich reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lace. Aroma of caramel malt and citrusy hops. Rich and smooth body with a toasted malt and caramel flavor plus notes of grapefruit and hops. The finish is malty with a citrus aftertaste. Above average overall.

750ml bottle pours a hazy amber with a creamy off white head. Nose is light citrus, lightly sweet, some crackers, malty. Flavor is overly sweet, brown sugar, very saccharin, light hops. Tons of unfermentables. Another unfermented overhyped beer.

Via trade with Dchmela. Nice aroma of bread, caramel, toffee, alcohol, fruit. The appearance is a opaque red/brown, cream colored head. The flavor is like the aroma, bear, caramel upfront, not as boozy, some citrus hops. The finish is citrus hops. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent. Thanks, Dave.
