3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle a few months back. Big black pour, little head. Big vanilla nose mixed with sweet roast, and espresso. Palate is big on the creamy espresso, medium roast, and lots and lots of vanilla, sweet, but the very finish almost balances it out with some bitterness. Yum!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Dark cola color with a thick off white head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malt and piney hops. Taste follows suit and adds a touch of citrus from the hops and a hint of vanilla in the finish. Great balance. Rich with relatively strong carb. Excellent and much better than the non-imperial version.
