3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from BevMo. Dark reddish copper color with an ok beige head. Aroma of roasted caramel. Full bodied with mild but sharpish carbonation. It’s rather sweet, progresses to roasted malt, shows a mild touch of coffee, has touches of likely noble hop. Heat is very well hiddden. Finishes towards dry/astringent with something like chocolate coating the mouth. It’s a variable beast. I think they have a good beer here.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dirty hazed brown bock with a thin mocha head. In aroma, loads of dark fruits, cherry liqueur, musty and powdery character, a bit cloying. In mouth, a sweet caramel and cherry drink, with warming alcohol, a bit lacking in body, but overall, interesting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Just realized I forgot to rate this after looking at some of my old notes from last month. Brown pour with a smallish than head. Aroma is full of malt, caramel and some fruit. Flavor is very nice. I got some caramel, light milk chocoalte tones, some vanilla, and a very light touch of hops. Of the imperial series, this is the ONLY one worth drinking.
