Reddish pour with an off white head. Sweet aroma of caramel and fruit. Flavor is carame, fruit, yet significantly less sweeter than last years. Some warming alcohol in the finish. Overall, much less sweet, tasty, awesome beer.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2009
12 ounce bottle courtesy of Alraomon. Thanks! Pours a reddish copper color with a thin head. Poor head retention and fair lacing. Very malty aroma with notes of caramel, toffee, toasted malts, fruit and hops. Taste is EXTREMELY malty... tons of toffee, brown sugar and dark fruits. Full bodied and quite sticky in texture.

NeoHippie2 (903) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Pours a dark amber with a small white head. Lots of caramel and roasted malts on the nose. Sweet toffee/caramel flavor with lots of malt. The taste of this brew grabs your attention from the very first sip. Complex for sure and even though its got that 9.5% abv I think it hides it very well. Solid brew and worth a try if you can find it.

Alcohol is very present along with a lot of sugar, caramel, and a light hop touch. Some vanilla near the end, but tons of alcohol.

Caramel malts and nut aroma. Taste is heavy malts, caramel, toffee, a bit of chocolate, and alcohol. Finishes with a bit warming sensation and a malt aftertaste, not bad.

Changing this offering from one of their seasonal to their new Imperial label has been more than just a re-hash of an old brew. Strong caramel and fruity nose, rapidly thinning head will leave a nice lace eventually after joyfully lingering over this complex brew. Increase in ABV is readily noticeable.
