3.55/5  rDev -1.7%

Served on-tap for Friday Night Flights at Party Town (Florence, KY). The pour is golden-amber, cloudy, and sports a nice fluffy white head. The nose is sweet and reeks of over-ripe fruit, primarily mangoes, peaches, and pears. There is a slight hint of booziness to the nose as well.

The beer is medium-bodied and has a really sweet, almost cloying, flavor. Lots of fruity sweetness hits you up front and doesn't let up. There's no bitterness at all, just rails of sweetness. At the back of the palate, a nice hint of pepper complicates matters as you swallow. The sweetness hinders the drinkability, but I was impressed that there was no hint of the 10% ABV.

Overall, I don't think an ``imperial fruit beer'' is something I want to experience again. Granted, the pepper notes were extremely well done - just a suggestion of spiciness and not enough to rattle your palate, but the overwhelming sweetness made this a little tough for me to drink. I think I prefer the lower ABV fruit beers. This stuff reminded me of a ``fruit drink'' made with high fructose corn syrup.

Serving type: on-tap

Reviewed from memory from 4 days ago.

Poured a fairly clear golden copper with a foamy ivory head that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Tropical notes of mango and pineapple were contrasted by sweet and spicy peppery notes.

In flavor, the mango really came to life. It was a pleasant, juicy contrast to the fruity, spicy pepper flavor. The heat was still a bit too much. Malt was somewhat thin, and lacked sweetness to counter.

Got a bottle of this. Think I'll lay it down another couple years. Couldn't drink more than a few ounces, though.
