Drank on tap (12 oz) at the Montreal brepub on February 19, 2012. Honey amber, medium head. Aroma of sweet cream and barley hops, hints of peaches. Taste of hoppy peaches and herbs hoppy, very bitter, dry aftertaste. Nice but a little too much!

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Noted as an Imperial Cream Ale. Super lacy, cloudy brown bodied. Very creamy mouthfeel, a full dessert experience. And good hoppiness,Very smooth drinker. Third in a series of very good beers here.

On a nitro tap at Dieu du Ciel prior to our trip to the ice cider Mondial. Pours a hazed brown with a medium sized dense white head. Sweet candy on the nose. Medium bodied, roast, cocoa. Light sweetness, phenolic. Sweet cream. Super creamy. Malt and toast.

My Bottom Line:
This Imperial Cream Ale seduces the dessert lover with its orange confit impressions, its caramel coulis and whipped cream of a mouthfeel leading to moderate resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A whipped head of foam finally settles atop the misty amber glow.
-The mouthfeel is so creamy it much turn off some who arent sure they like nitrogen.
-The overall flavor profile is rather delicate for something billed as Imperial. Which is nice for once.
-The aroma is redolent of citrus zest on cake icing.
-Hops also offer spicy angles.
-I can see this getting very popular with the brewpub crowd. Appearance and mouthfeel are truly memorable, and the hop signature is very pleasant.

On tap at the brewpub.

Tap nitro pour at ddc. Takes crazy long to settle the nitro. Decent head retention for a nitro beer. Slight lace. Hazed medium amber body. Aroma is sweet light dusty earthy hops with fruit- slight grape ester. Flavor sweet sugary marshmellow fruut light grape toast and light brown sugar. Sweet smooth finish. Not bad for an imperial cream ale! Haha
