3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into glass. Pours a medium brown with a khaki 1 finger head. Aroma - maple, roasted almond. Taste - dark chocolate, maple, light hop bitterness, finish of dark roasted malt (medium coffee like). Better than the non-imperial version in my opinion.

Deep ruby color, small beige head. Malty, nutty, a bit tart aroma. Medium-bodied. Malty, nutty, caramel and also some kind of tart vibe. I don’t like so much. Maybe keg has past its prime.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small short-lived fizzy beige had. The nose is super nutty and sweet, it smells like desert in a glass. Lots of hazelnut, maple, milk chocolate, caramel, minimal hops. The flavor is rather sweet as well with nutty and chocolate malts, a fairly prominent maple note, and a lingering slightly husky caramel note. Medium bodied with a slight cling and fizzy carbonation. Meh, decent enough for a single, but I think the sweetness would get a bit much with more than one.

Sample@tkcbb. Brown. Woody, brown malty, bready tones. And sweetness, bit molassey. Full bodied, soft smooth body. Chocolate. Malty. A bit flat though, feels bit industrial. Decent tho.
