2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Thanks bauermj. Pours a viscous soft straw gold with two fingers of dense dirty white head. Oh man, rich nose. Tons of bread/dough. Very dextrinous with notes of fresh cut pear and apple juice. Notes of spicy alcohol come through along with herbal/leafy hops. Pfew, not a fan of the flavor. Super rich and dextrinous with some shaved coconut, sweet bread, and buttery oak. Not doin it for me.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
medium body, high carbonation, slight malt and sour wood in the nose. Vanilla and wood comes through as it warms up. Maybe a little alcohol hot but not off-putting. Would like to see a little more malt backbone to keep up with the barrel. But nice vanilla notes come through.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle. Poured clear light-medium golden with an off-white head. The aroma picked up semi-sweet honey and biscuity notes, with lots of oak and some vanilla accenting.. nice underlying warmth.. the oak worked well in there. The flavor found crusty bread, a kiss of honey, and vanilla at the core.. dry, peppery oak and lesser fruity notes around, along with citrus and soapy bitterness.. finished with a lot of oak character and residual warmth. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. really dry from the carbo and the oak.. overall a solid brew, but I’m much rather see it in a six pack.

Taster at Provisions. Rating #42. Clear gilden pour, a little on the darkside with a white head. Malty and a little woody with a subtle smokiness. Clean, grainy with a stout maltiness and more oak in the finish. Nice stuff, very mellow and tasty. (2160)

Bottle courtesy of my RS membership. Thanks to my trustee for getting it out this way. Served in a Bruery tulip.
Pours a slightly-cloudy very light copper color with a thin white head and no real lacing. Thin collar as it goes down. The nose brings some bread and faint earthy hops. Light malt sweetness as well. Flavor is bready with light caramel. and semi-sweet malt. A bit of booze. Chewy medium body with average carbonation. Nothing special and a bit boozy.
