Bottle (341 ml). Completely clear golden with a medium mostly diminishing white head and huge lacing. Aroma is grassy and mineral with notes of caramel and alcohol. Taste is grassy with booze, noble hops and caramel. Mouthfeel is oily. Impressive body for a pilsner. This beer is greatly balanced, quite complex and fairly drinkable for is 8.5% abv. Massive Imperial Pilsner. Another wonderful beer by DDC!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home, thanks to Fred82. Pours lightly hazy polished copper; thin white head, lacing is spotty to poor. Nose is floral, with creamy notes, some honey, some real mineral/chalk notes here as well, also a hint of cold cream. Flavours of soft earth, some hop florals/bitterness, a touch on the vegetal side, which isn’t really grabbing me... Pleasantly malty throughout, some real spiciness and candied stonefruit comes through as well. Dried fruit, especially apricots, and some tobacco towards the finish. A solid brew, but something I’m rather glad just to have one of.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of MartinT. Merci! Robust from the get-go. Nose of rich sweet malt supported by light piney hops. Nose translates directly to large body. Overall short lived on tongue. Desire for more easily outweighs the mere 341 ml bottle. A beautiful deep golden brass in glass. Steady carbonation yields decent head. Biscuit in finish. MMMmmm.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden blonde with a very short-lasting white head. Smell is hoppy. Taste is butter (???) and caramel. Some lemon, citrusy bitterness, along with pepper. Did I also detect some pear? Medium bodied, velvety mouthfeel. Very good pilsner - actually reminded me of a Belgian strong ale...but...oh well, it was good!
