Bottle->SA. Medium bright brown with frothy offwhite head. Aroma: malt and caramel, quite sweet. Taste: more caramel malt, and add bread and raisins. Sweet nose slides to bitter and back again to a sweet lingering aftertaste. Good.

tmoreau (2284) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2013
On tap and snifter served at Lunar Brewing Co. showing a clear mahogany hue, with an appropriate amount of off white/light tan head foam that gradually reduced to a ring & film, and ribbony cling to the lacing. The aroma was just touches of esters & cocoa, but mainly rich, toasted malt, caramel, and brown sugar sweetness. The flavor also offered moderate hop bitterness, a pleasant alcohol warmth, medium+ body, soft carbonation, and a smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. A spot on interpretation of the style.

Bottle. Pours copper with a large tan head. Sweet aroma with caramel, bread, dark fruits and a hint of spice. Sweet flavor with caramel, dark fruits, bread and light spice. Similar finish with a hint of alcohol and a bit more hop spiciness. A decent brew just too sweet.

marv3mania (176) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark brown, almost completely opaque against light, very thin white head. Rich, sweet scent of chocolate and toffee. Light carbonation with a smooth feel. Sweet tastes like toffee and dark fruits without being too sweet, distinct caramel undertones, taste becomes richer as the beer starts to warm. Very good beer, sweet and rich without being overpowering or overly bitter. One of the better beers I’ve had recently. I’ll definitely be having this again.

12oz bottle shared. Pours reddish brown color with off white head. The aroma is quite sweet with malt. The body is medium. The flavor is is very breads sweet with caramel booze backbone. You can feel the warmth of the alcohol. This leaves like an oily lacing on the glass. Not bad but not great.

TheJestersBeer (2032) - SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2012
355ml bottle. Semi-sweet, full bodied, medium bitterness, balanced carbonation. Malty taste, chocolate, cocoa, fudge, butterscotch, hops, diacetyl. Quite alright, but a bit sticky. (2009-03-06)

From first sip, taste buds wait for alcohol taste to hit. That feeling lasts through sip, but above-average beer taste follows. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SPDickerman (913) - Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Pours clear mahogany with a large beige cream head. Smells super malty, like caramel, with a distinct hint of fruit. Taste big sweet, hints of toffee and fruit, with almost no bitterness. Full-bodied with a slick texture, and soft mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams Imperial Series Double Bock finishes with a smooth, almost sticky feeling.
