On a nitro tap at Dieu du Ciel prior to our trip to the ice cider Mondial. Pours a hazed brown with a medium sized dense white head. Sweet candy on the nose. Medium bodied, roast, cocoa. Light sweetness, phenolic. Sweet cream. Super creamy. Malt and toast.

My Bottom Line:
This Imperial Cream Ale seduces the dessert lover with its orange confit impressions, its caramel coulis and whipped cream of a mouthfeel leading to moderate resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A whipped head of foam finally settles atop the misty amber glow.
-The mouthfeel is so creamy it much turn off some who aren’t sure they like nitrogen.
-The overall flavor profile is rather delicate for something billed as ’Imperial’. Which is nice for once.
-The aroma is redolent of citrus zest on cake icing.
-Hops also offer spicy angles.
-I can see this getting very popular with the brewpub crowd. Appearance and mouthfeel are truly memorable, and the hop signature is very pleasant.

On tap at the brewpub.

Tap nitro pour at ddc. Takes crazy long to settle the nitro. Decent head retention for a nitro beer. Slight lace. Hazed medium amber body. Aroma is sweet light dusty earthy hops with fruit- slight grape ester. Flavor sweet sugary marshmellow fruut light grape toast and light brown sugar. Sweet smooth finish. Not bad for an imperial cream ale! Haha
