4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
9.3%ABV. Imperial IPA.
Tapped out an beautiful amber. 16ºSRM.
Nose is full of funky wheaty milky aromas. It’s like walking into a cheese closet. On deeper inspection there are malty, slightly sweet notes.
Mouthfeel is carbonated. There is no lightness at all as the palate is assaulted by the richly malty, maple syrup-like palate of roasted malt. Very nice and very reassuring to know that the fine folks at ToØl can do sophisticated as well. This is like tuxedo and shorts. I don’t know, does that make sense at all? The palate features a good quantity of biscuit, caramel and nutty flavors. Because of the richness you might even imagine some toffee or butterscotch. The alcohol in this one was a good call to help lift all that sweet heft giving it a very very sneakily sophisticated boost.
Finish is medium and bitter.
Like I said, overall the experience was like putting on tails and shorts. Very cool.
Goes on Favorites List!

Cloudy orange appearance with a small layer of head. Complex tastes of hops, toast, coffee, spruce and some chocolate and a small hint of alcohol. Quite full bodied, really smooth and great carbonation, and a lasting aftertaste of hops, some orange peel and spruce. One of the greats

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Arena’s in Milford, DE. Poured golden, hazy, with a small white head and nic lacing. Aroma is hoppy, some citrus fruit and lots of malts and caramel notes. Quite milder than your usual American DIPA, but at the same time very well balanced, interesting combination of malts and hops. Very good beer.

Wunderbar klassich-süffiges Imperial mit einem ordentlichen Bumms. Daneben fruchtig, frisch, hopfig, prickelnd, etwas süffig. Eine Badewanne voll hätte ich haben wollen.

Bottle brought at Rudat in Dortmund. Pours cloudy orange with stable white head. Intense nose of citric fruit and yeast good and balanced. Nor for the taste very very bitter and oily, sticky mouthfeel taste of resin and pine bitterness is somhow annoying after all. Piny adtertaste... But uneasy to drink
