3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at a cgarvieuk tasting. Orangey gold, small white head slowly disappears. Nose is honeyed, slight floral hops, hint of marzipan. Slightly sweet up front - bready, lager grain also. Hints of caramel and a reasonably bitter earthy hop finish. Not bad but not totally working for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours a clear, copper-gold with a slightly off-white, foam head. Has a rich toffee aroma with hints of booze, leaves, caramel. Flavor is very sweet and rife with alcohol. Some leafy bitterness, bread, caramel, faint brown sugar. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish, plenty of toffee, toast, sugar, leaves, faint earth. Pretty ballsy stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[330ml bottle, courtesy of MikeMilner] Pours a slightly hazy orange, with a thin white head, reducing to a lacing pretty quickly. Sweet, bready aroma - bread and butter pudding? Fruity on the nose as well. Mouthfeel on this is enormous - boozy syrup, very sweet, almost cloying to be honest. Flavours of caramel, orange, massive malt, honey. Hefty amount of alcohol on the finish. Feels like everything has been ramped to the max, in every department - more like a IIPA than a marzen, but then it is an Imperial marzen I guess. Not really sure if I like it, to be honest. But it’s fascinating

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ the Rake, London.
Pours clear orange with a small, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma has fruitiness, crisp malts, oranges. Lowish carbonation, lovely creamy and fat mouthfeel. Flavour is extremely malty, vinious, dry hoppiness, pine, fresh and delicious with great balance. Long, lingering dryness with just a hint of metal. Extremely drinkable and a fun experiment in the malts departement.
