NeoHippie2 (1058) - 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.

Pours copper/amber. with a white head. Aroma is malt and caramel. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, toffee, and alcohol. A sweet beer for sure, but a pretty good one.

zach8270 (3519) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2009
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear copper color with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with hints of caramel and toffee. Flavor is very strong at the start with tons of malts and raisins. 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.

hombrepalo (1841) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2009
12 oz single from Archer Liquors. This really isn’t that bad, I probably woll pass on it next time but this had some good qualities. oured a dark copper clear copper color. nice big tan head. 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.

dpmeersman (13) - Rochdale, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 19, 2009
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.

Metalhead (630) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2009
The only things I found different between this and the seasonal version were the price $2.75 per bottle vs $1.50. The ABV 9.5 vs 7.5. Aroma very similar. Taste-the imperial is cleaner version with the added ABV not in your face. Not sure how this will age or if it will. Decide for yourself if $11 a 4 pack is worth it.

BeerBunker (725) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Pours mahogany with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, and dark fruit. Taste is of Nyquil, fruit, malt, and chocolate. What the hell is wrong with this beer? It tastes like horrid cough syrup and cheap malt. It pours nice and smells nice, but it tastes awful. Ok, after several sips, the horrid Nyquil taste settled. Though it never fully went away. Small notions of malt, chocolate, and caramel. Mouthfeel is extremely light and very gritty. They slapped in a ton of alcohol and slapped on a bigger price tag. Just plain poor.

decaturstevo (5198) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2009
Dark cherry red/brown. Roasted malt with a hint of funk. Flavor of abv, rich sweet malt and a not much bitter. Thin and pretty hot at 8.8. Not a bad beer though.

tgncc (2852) - Bellmore, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Caramel, toffee, other fruit on the nose. The aroma is not as strong as i would have expected. Appearance is an attractive red/mohagany color, modest off white head. Flavor is candy sugar, toffee, grapes, alcohol. The finish is sweet, with a good amount of alcohol, providing a slight warming. Medium mouthfeel, not very thick for a dopplebock. I don’t think I liked this one as much as the regular SA Double Bock, one of my favorites from Sam Adams. This beer is enjoyable enough though.
