3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home, side by side with maple nut brown ... Both Very Clear reddish copper...sweet toffee and little meaty ... smoother deeper and slicker ...Given the huge difference in % its ncie to see that i concur in a side by side all be it that i the gap is smaller and that i quite like both of them ... little caramel ... again a little mayble but again it doesnt overpower ... ittle woodynesss... all in all i think this one wins over the maple nut due to a slightly sweeter edge and a better mouthfeeel and depth rather than on any other characterisitics.... Though wife realy didnt like the maple nut but did like the imperial... It would appear that im the weirdo liking both .
