Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JAN 29, 2009
4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12/6/08 On draft at the Winter Brewfest, Seattle, Wa. Aroma is sweet cream forward with a rich alcohol note. Appearance is almost black with a well maintained tan head. Flavor is sweet rich malt forward with lots of caramel and dried fruit bittering that blends with light roast character. Mouthfeel is full bodied with a medium carb texture and light graininess. Overall, a really excellent oak imperial brew that should only worry those that are scared of flavor.
