cmonster (965) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark orange with a medium sized head. Good retention and lace. Nose is heavy malt, oak, and surprising lemon zest. Med sweet, mild lemony bitter flavor. Medium body, sticky texture, and a long, malty, light bitter, warming finish.

Hair6a11 (1319) - Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle; Pour is murky golden with a modest frothy fine bubbled off white head in this glass. The nose is... a little bland. Bready, fruity, oak treatment, and a bit of booze. The flavor profile has a bit of harshness up front, with some more breadiness, more booze, some tropical fruits... and some bitterness near the finish. It’s just an interesting take, but it’s not exactly a great beer by any stretch.

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 18, 2012
A - Pours a cloudy golden-orange with a big frothy finger of white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of oak, with some malty and grain sweetness, citrus and floral hop, lemon zest, and a bit of booze. T - Starts off with a mix of oak with some sweet malts and grains and some light fruit notes. Through the middle, some floral and citrus hop flavor comes through with some bitterness and corn. The finish is a mix of oak, sweet bready malts, light fruit notes, floral hops, and some booze. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a warming and malty finish. D - Very drinkable. Very much an Imperial version of the style, and the oak goes nicely with the beer. The malt and other flavors are nicely balanced.

DalzAle (1965) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Clear pee yellow pour average carbonation and a wierd aroma of bad malt and honey. Flavor was terrible, bad malt, bad honey and an aftertaste that can only be described as "blegh." Awful beer.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours dirty light amber in color with a white soapy head that fades to a soapy film and collar. Aroma is grassy grain and hay with a swamp like scent. Taste is all of the above and still the grassy dirty malt and swamp like flavor is still there. Palate is medium and sticky with a dry finish.

Bacterial (1400) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2012
A mild funk to the nose, is that right? Taste is odd, thins out quickly with lingering bitterness. Interesting to taste, but not something I want to have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (6067) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2012
Pour out of 750 mL bottle is clear yellow with thin white head, aroma brought notes of slight oak, bread and biscuity notes, slight mineral and weird off plastic notes, some slight grass as well. Taste is a mix of biscuit and slight mineral and plastics, slight bready yeast with grass finishing fairly bitter. No thanks.

Rando7 (728) - Iowa, USA - APR 12, 2012
Bottle pours clear yellow with thin but persistent white head. Aroma of sour slightly rancid fruits with a bitter air. Taste initially sweet, light fruits, oak. Palate thin and slightly sticky. Finish prolonged oaky acidity with slight hops.

The oak really overwhelms the maibock aspects, not a good combination.

Unclear - hazy medium golden orange colour with a small to average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting to diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, pale malt, sugar, sweet malt. Flavour is moderate to light heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter with a long duration, wood - oak notes - not sure ! Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20120202]

TURDFERGUSON (3943) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Bottle, thanks emacgee for sharing. Opaque orange with a large head that fades immediately leaving a dull. Flavor is surprisingly bearable, lots of oak, light notes of orange peel and lemon, light booze. Flavor is incredibly dull, lightly grainy, and boozy. Drinks very heavy. imperial mailbock is stupid.
