This beautiful example of an American Imperial Bock is delicious! It tickles the tongue with a beautiful hop profile and engorges the mouth, palate and throat with a wicked lingering luscious malt rush! under-rated! mrhoppy (1196) - Santa Clara, California, USA - MAY 19, 2009
He’brew?!? Schmaltz?+*&% Olde Saratoga??? Mendocino?>":+*%$#. What is this beer trivia? Anyway this beer is pretty good. Thick sweet and syrupy. The high alcohol complements the sweetness well. Oaked bourbon raisin and vanilla. Should be higher rated. Very very nice and damn tasty. dwyerpg (6410) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Grass malt city in the aroma. This is very malty and tons of caramel. I like this. Almost has a barleywine feel to it. Excellent. Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Tap @ The He’Brew Bash at the Blind Tiger NYC. I was fricking wasted by the end so some of these rates might be a bit odd. Mega clear, some light hoppiness on the nose. Super rich and full, sweet yet bitter and sooo good. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2011
translucent copper brown, thick bubbly beige head, creamy full body, medium-high carbonation.

aroma: dark alcohol, roasted toffee malt, bready yeast, and a touch of blown-out candles.
taste: metallic minerality, blown-out candles, very toffee and dark-roast malts, leafy hops, bready yeast, and some boozy alcohol.
Not very traditional, which is not a bad thing to me. Somewhere between doppelbock and barleywine. This has a lot of potential, but needs a little age to mellow it out.
Heavy toffee and maltiness in aroma. The flavor is caramel, sweetish malts, toffee, a mild undertone of hops and a alcohol kick in the finish. Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Dark with large off-white head. Aroma of malts and fruits (sort of wine-like). Complex taste, malts, grapes, chocolate, cranberry, coffee, slight breadiness, alcohol. A great complex beer, high alcohol too!
