A: Funky looking ceramic bottle that resealable with a swing lever thingy rubber stopper. Cool. Pours out a nice hazy golden color with an absolute steamer of a head. You little beauty! Head is big and fluffy and sticky and white. Lovely. Side note: pours out of the bottle with a cool sounding glug glug glug like a wine bottle. Major points for the looks of both the bottle and the beer. It's the experience, you know?

S: I smelled a big hop aroma as soon as I opened this one. Wow. In the glass, there's a heavy sweet malt aroma that just barely makes itself known underneath a big hop aroma that is floral and just a bit on the spicy side. Also some strong alcohol aromas can be noticed.

T: Very very hoppy. Aggressive? Good enough description. This beer is a nice balance of a strong citrusy hop flavor and a heavy sweet maltiness. It's like a duet of two really great singers. Neither overpowers the other, and they complement each others tastes very well. There is a long lingering bitterness for an aftertaste. Alcohol taste is a bit higher than I would have liked, the alcohol taste and feel is similar to a 120 Minute IPA, and this is only (only?) 8.8%.

M: Smooth and creamy on the palate. Heavy without being syrupy. Full bodied with a light carbonation and a strong feel of alcohol. It's punchy, but the alcohol seems like it helps to carry some of the flavors and aromas to the nose.

D&N: A great choice of beers for NBS number 13. Very complex, Rogue is getting some big style point from me for their wicked cool bottles. Surprisingly easy to drink for such a big beer. Writing this review I can hear it in my head, and the voice of my review is Fukui-san! This beer definitely reigns supreme. Outstanding brew and enthusiastically recommended.

On-tap at the Buckeye Brewing Company.

Our trip to the BBC for some rumored-to-be-tapped cask Two-Hearted turned out to be quite a nice visit. BBC had this among many other fine offerings on tap for our little jaunt to lovely (sarcasm) Bedford Heights, OH.

Cloudy dull orange in color with a thin and tightly-packed white head that did a tolerable job of hanging around and even lacing the glass. Nose is almost all floral hops, with some medicinal alcohol detected as well. Flavor continues to amaze me with only 4 ingredients coming together for a wonderful experience. Front is doughy sweet, with distinct honey flavor creeping in soon after. Dries out, and ends with an alcohol kick that warms you up. Again, very well-balanced and drinkable. I'm very glad to have tried this one again.

I had this at Morimoto's restaurant here in Philly, which was an adventure. The first glass the waiter brought me was chilled. I asked for a room-temp one. The next one had water in it. By the third glass, I was set for some tasting.

Thin white frothy head on top of a orange/gold body. The smell is somewhat akin to a less-hoppy IPA. The malt scent is big and sweet, but it's cut through by a distinct hop and alcohol notes. There's a clean bit of fruit in the nose that's quite inviting.

The flavor is very interesting. The consistency/mouthfeel is more what I'd expect from a double IPA with a nice thick, syrupy feel. The flavor has a huge fruity/sweet malt undercurrent with a suprisingly delicate finish of malt and alcohol. The flavor is creamy with hints of vanilla, peppery spices, and even a bit of pine in the finish.

Did I enjoy this one tremendously with my excellent meal at Morimoto? Yes. Will I shell out the 15 bucks to buy it again? No. This is a great beer, but if I can get two great six-packs for the same price, I'm going to pass.

It poured a fizzybubblybouncy golden yellow, carbonated out the yingyang and buzzing up a couple fingers of a fine white foam that clung tenaciously to the glass as I drank it down.

The aroma delivered the expected sweet malt wave, nicely balanced by the yeast and notes of noble hops.

Upon drinking, the fruity sweet malt evolved with the hops and yeast to delvier a peppery melange in the midground. It was as expected, but in a fuller, more well-rounded fashion than your typical pilsner, hence the double appelation. The yeast and hops co-exist nicely.The finish was carried by the fading pepper/fruit duet, then at the last by the lingering tang of the hops.

A bit heavier than your average pilsner, certainly, but it was still a touch short of even medium-bodied. It enlivened the palate, bubbles dancing, and left a slick but gentle trace of hops on the tongue.

This is a beer you'd likely want another of, but there's a lot of it in one bottle. I did note that the more esoteric qualities outpaced the meat and potatoes of taste and smell, but I think that's more due to the fact that the ABV is very present, even though it is well-disguised by the malt, hops, and yeast. It's there in the periphery, and while not distracting, you can't totally ignore it either. Still, while not a session beer, for my money, and while a bit pricey, I'd relish another go-round with one of these. And the bottle itself is a keeper.

A HUGE thanks goes out to BA "Junior" for allowing me to partake in this absolute beauty, which was consumed on 04.12.05...

A wonderful, thick and pillowy head sat calmly atop a darker-than-straw brew... A sticky lace followed all the way down the side of my Willi Becher. The nose was full of malt and hops, to be sure. The flavor is somewhat caramel-sweet, but not in a cloying way whatsoever. Very smooth and crisp, even for a Double Pilsner. The ABV is well-hidden in this brew, as all I can think about is the fine balance between the hops and the malts...

Had this on tap at the Eugene Rogue location. Tried to order a full pint, but no go, only a 10 oz. serving for the XS taps. Damn! However, this was still a terrific choice. After having the Morimoto Soba and being fairly unimpressed, I was hoping the IP was more worthy of the moniker and was fulfilled.

Although I appreciate a pilsner occasionally, I like it more in theory than in practice, if you get me: the simplicity of the beer is appealing in its potential for alchemal surprise, but that potential seems to be rarely realized. Until now!

This brew bears very little resemblance to Rogue's Uber Pils.
A nice appearance, though nothing special in particular. Not a watery looker, nor a fizz-fest either.

Terrific noble aroma. Mellow yet spicy, and not of raw hops but rather muddled by the pils malt, giving the spice room to move and breathe.

This was far and away the best tasting pils I've ever had. Though not aggressive in presentation on the palate, the profile of malt and hops were discrete and identifiable while not being distracting from the enjoyment of just drinking a beer.

For such an alcoholic brew, this was refreshing and one that, if cost were not prohibitive, I could stick with all night.

Definitely the most beautiful pilsner I've ever seen. It pours crystal clear with a multitude of sparkly little bubbles jetting to the top to replenish the thin head. Only slightly darker than the usual pils, but not the typical light fizzy yellow piss color. There is something funky in the smell, but I never really did enjoy the smell of pilsner, and this smells twice as strong as the usual pils. Can't tell if it is the malts, hops, or yeast that produces that funky pilsner smell, but I'm not a big fan.

The taste, on the other hand, was quite refreshing. This is what I would have suspected Budweiser Select would taste like if I was gullible enough to believe their marketing and still knew something about beer: "more hops and less aftertaste." It seems like an oxymoron, but even though this is way bigger and more hoppy than your typical pilsner, the aftertaste seems to fade rather quickly. It initially begins with a sweet taste of malts, even maybe a bit of lemon or lime and berries, fading into a slight hoppy bite at the end. The finish is only the slightest bit dry, and like I mentioned, the hoppy aftertaste seems to fade very soon after the drink. I imagine this would go excellent with some shitty, salty/greasy bar food or BBQ.

The only problem: if you want to enjoy this beverage again you have to pay the monetary equivalent of inserting the finished ceramic bottle directly up your ass (or in other words, anywhere from 10-15 dollars for a ~22 oz. depending on your location). I doubt I will be making the plunge, no pun intended, even though this was a damn good beer. My compliments to the Iron Chef, Morimoto, and Rogue, but please don't hose your customers on bottling expenses... even though it is quite a fancy one for the collection, it is a one time thing.

'da flip top Rogue bottle...
Four ingredients label: 100% French Pils malt, 100% Sterling hops, H2O & Czech pilsner yeast. 18 Plato, 74 IBU, 8.8% ABV.

Appears fuzzy golden orange amber hues covered with a generous gargantuan cratered surface of the moon 1/2" thick leaving copious lattice lace.

Copper pennies & vegetal leafy aromas and a gin & tonic scent.

First swigs: Over the top malty and a bit of awl-kee-hawl detection. Some fruity ester hints seep through like peach schnapps, and pineapple. Overall, complex, but difficult to describe over the boozy rum notes.

Smooth as silk feel. Medium bodied big bottle that goes back easy!

Last swigs: Apricot schnapps with orange juice pulp tickle. $17 a bomber. I got hosed!

Appearence: Pours a wonderful gold orange with a creamy, white head.

Smell: The smell is almost a combination of IPA style hops and Barleywine style malts. The alcohol is also very detectable.

Taste and Mouthfeel: The taste is almost that of an IPA with some toned down hops. Has the same feel to it, but I guess that's what happens when you add high alcohol to "lighter" styled beers. The hops are glorious and full of life, but the malts kinda make it a little to sticky tasting. The hops last forever.

Drinkability and Overall: Not a bad beer at all. Definitly not. The hops are wonderful, the alcohol adds a nice character to it, and while the malty taste isn't the best, it rounds it off well. I could really drink this one for a while. Try it.

comes in a beautiful ceramic (white) bottle with reusable rubber stopper attatched, very nice. $12.99 for a 1pt 10oz thingy..

imperial pilsner ? yep it is strange.. but hey rogue is usually good so what the heck...

pale golden color on the pour and clear/clean looking in the glass.. excellent head, almost 2 fingers and holding, no strong odor detected (not that this style is know for that, but if you sniff some american crap you can smell the adjuncts)
taste:
hop and malt are both up front, not any bite to the hop due to the balance of the malt. this doesnt taste 8.8% at all except maybe a twinge at the very back end of the after taste. the carbonation is perfect, just enough to bubble but not enough to froth or be over bearing. I am amazed how balanced this beer is, especially at the higher ABV.. friggin kudos to rogue, this is tasty, doesnt have the bitterness one finds in some typical european pils... and not as sweet/malty overkill as stuff from the czech repub.. damn tasty (although the ABV can catch up with you), quite a surprise for a pilsner, the style often maligned by beer snobs like me but this one is worth trying. It never peeks into any other realm of too hoppy for a pils, or too sweet for a pils.. it really stradles the line, recommended.

Grassy, hoppy smells abound with a mildly peachlike character.

This pours a cloudy, hazy golden/orange with a dimpled head of froth.

TAste is quite bitter and acrid with a zinger of a hop finish. Notes of peppery, spicy herbs as well as cilantro and chamomille. Some hints of sage, twigs, and coconut and some orange rind on the finish. Alcohol is totally hidden at 8.8%.
THere is a helluva zing in the mouthfeel, this is very lively.
This posessed some characteristics of a damn good IPA at times, and a strong maibock at others. But nothing, NOTHING like any pilsener I've ever tasted. But damn good.

1 PT. 10 Fl. OZ ceramic swingtop bottle. Purchased at Marty's in Newton, Massachusetts.

Bright oriental writing and art adorn the bottle. "No Chemicals. Preservatives or Additives. 4 Ingredients: 100% French Pilsner Malt; 100% Sterling Hops, Free Range Coastal Water and Czech Pilsner Yeast. Golden in color with a dry hop floral aroma and intense hop bitterness supported by a big malty backbone which culminates into a hedonistic mouthful."

So this is my first taste of the Morimoto line being put out by Rogue. Fans of the Food Network will recognize the name from the Iron Chef series.

Huge creamy head atop a cloudy amber body. Sweet hop smell entices the senses. Silky smooth in the mouth, sweet, hoppy taste with bit of alcohol at the end. Fantastic brew, and my first double pilsner. Highly recommended if you can find it.

I really dug this beer! It was like a pils yet it was not your average pils by any sense of the word. The color was beautiful with a medium goldish color with hints of copper, this was a great looking beer. The smell was very fresh and grassy with a nice crisp hop scent in the nose as well. The taste was outstanding with a nice crispy hop zing with a nice spice and full bodied malt flavor. I just wish it was not so damn expensive or this would be the session beer for me.

I had never even heard of an Imperial Pilsner until I first had it about a year ago at Trinity in Providence. I was pleasantly surprised, and that beer quickly became a favorite. I jumped at the chance to try the Rogue offering. It poured from the ceramic bottle a hazy gold color with a thick cream colored head that clung as a sheet of lace to the side of the glass. The nose is a piney hop character , a touch of dough, no real malt. The taste is an explosive bitterness, the pine I detected on the nose, along with loads of citrus/grapefruit. There is a mild malt back that lends a sweetness to the beer. There is a definite alcohol warming on the finish along with a subtle spiciness. Crisp mouth feel, and surprisingly drinkable. Very interesting beer, and despite the posts to the opposite, I love the new ceramic bottles.

On draft at Anam Cara.

Pours a light pale golden color with a faint head that leaves no lace. Aromas consisted of warming pilsner malts mixed with citrusy floral hops. Initial flavors to this brew were crisps and full with a heavy dosage of pilsner malts and a nice sweetness. The finish was absolutely majestic with a firm hop presence that was spicy and citrusy with a lemon zest finish. There was just a final tone of alcohol just in the end but the hops really helped to hide this out. As for drinkability this one creeps up on ya because it tastes so damn good, yet you wonder where's the alcohol since the flavors are just balanced so amazingly. Overall a beer that must be sought out, especially on draft.

Battled the Tokugawa bakufu with this one on 2/6/2005. 1 pt. 10 fl. oz. ceramic swingtop (2003 version) poured twice in shaker.

On opening, I noted a chip in the bottle's rim and some sticky brown substance, perhaps some crystallized sugar. Pours with initial frothiness that settles down to nothing but Casper the Friendly Ghost. Light golden color with extreme clarity, almost to a fault, with slow bubbling. Washed out light malt jam with just a touch hint of lemon and icy wash on nose. May have gone over slightly; very tart on mouth with a cilantro-like taste, but it grows and actually becomes more agreeable with the alcohol pronouncing itself and a low level malt feel. Initially suspicious of this, I ended up enjoying it.

Pours a somewhat hazy deep golden color. Thin,foamy head. Nice hoppy aroma. Vanilla and somewhat grassy. Not as much as I thought there would be considering the "imperial" moniker. Nice big malty and hoppy flavor. Very well hopped but nicely balanced with the malt. Slightly astringent. Good body. Overall a very drinkable beer. Im wondering how fresh this bottle might be but enjoyable none the less. Well worth a try.

Wow, finally got a chance to try this baby at a wrongly marked $3.99. Now that's a fucking steal.

This beer pours out a conventionally pils gold, with a dumbfoundingly beautiful lace i've sort of become jaded to in Rogue beers. Always purty, they is.

The nose is all wild and crazy Sterling hops, very grassy, herbal. Alcohol very noticable, but silken smooth amongst the forest of foriegn-to-Rogue nation hops, malt, and OMFG, yeast! No pacman to be found anywhere.

I caught this one on the peak of freshness ... the insane hoppiness had lost some of its beautiful ripeness, and receded into sheer bitterness ... but hey, still a helluva beer that is better by the last few drops. One is a tease, and at ~$15 this is one i've pretty much taken the ride of and won't really repeat. But still, an experience everyone should have.

My lasting impression: A super fresh Pilsner Urquell (pre-SAB miller, of course) on feckin' steroids.

And the bottle itself makes a wicked lightproof growler. Fantastic!

Clouded rich gold with a lacy, porous graying head.
Smell of rusted tin, peach muffins, rosemary, and gin-soaked dandelions.
Begins with a buttered graham cracked, brushed with butter, then loaded with peach and orange preserves. More rind like as it progress, and the orange stays steadfast but the peach gives way to lemon. Yeasty, and lightly doughy in the middle, but this presents as well-lagered, with a rushing water easiness (and subsequent drinkablity) that can only be explained in those terms. It rounds the corner with a plump, fresh baked rosemary sourdough loaf, then on to decaying rusty metal and gin-steeped weeds (again with the dandelion, and, now, with some milkweed). The lemon rind lingers and ups the ante with an increased pithy bitterness.
Fill the mouth, but tends towards dry and never cloys. The carbonation is trickling but durable.
An "Imperial Pilsener" seems to defy the very purpose of the style. And on those grounds, I wanted to hate this. But I didn't. Not at all. This is bold without being overblown or grandiose. It hangs tightly to its German backings. But maybe not so much as a pils as a India Hellesbock.
There is a lot of merit and purpose here.

Got a cool earthenware bottle for $11.99 !!!

Price a little high but I'm a sucker for new beers and interesting pils in particular. The beer pours a hazy gold-organge. Smell is sweet malt and a little hop. Taste is initial malt, but not sweet, almost a little carmelly or slightly burned. Hop hits initially a little "musty" - I am wondering if this is an older bottle. Although I would imagine the earthenware would protect this beer amazingly well, maybe the dry hop aromas have aged out a bit because there is no citrus. The hop reminds me a little of drinking a highly hopped English ESB past its prime. Musty. Still pretty enjoyable because of the real smack in the face bitterness that lingers on. I don't know about this quantity of malt though - man - I get that kind-of-burned malt taste hanging around. Alcohol is very well hidden flavorwise but at 8.8% it's in there!

Very interesting large bomber bottle served in a tall pilsner style glass.

This beer poured a very cloudy yellow that was somewhat darker and more orangish than your typical pilsner style beer.

Smell was strong for a pils, with typical yeasty aroma and mild hops.

Taste was very good and quite powerful. This one is a sneak-up-behind-you-and-whack-you-in-the-head-when-you're-not-looking kind of beer. Alchohol does not enter into the flavor much, but after drinking the full bottle, you will feel an effect.

2 fingers of head when poured out which dissipated in 3 minutes into a thin film and ring. Average to above-average carbonation. Poured a clearn tan color. Bitter sweet taste followed by a dry hoppy ending that lingers in your mouth. Unique taste for a unique style of brew. Served in a cermac bottle that is worthy of holding this fine American brew. Thanks again Rogue!

Picked this one up on my birthday trip to Taos, NM. Saved it for the second night and decided to drink it with some local Thai food we ordered.

It pours a golden yellow color with a huge off-white head and a slight bit of haziness. The head lasted until I had finished the bottle with moderate lacing clinging to sides.

The aroma sings floral hops, you can tell this one is dry-hopped.

There are two definite tastes to this beer. First, you experience a sweet, caramel malt flavor, but not for too long. then you are pounded by the piney, citrusy hops. The hop bitterness will linger with you for quite some time.

Good carbonation level and the high ABV is not really noticeable.

All in all this really went well with the pad thai I was enjoying.

I think this was a little over priced it was a very good beer but for $14.00 I do not think so. the bottle was nice, so I think that is were the extra cost comes in

“best by” date January 2005:

Imperial IPA…lite. Perfumy, hints of rose petals. A slick and viscous mouthfeel quickly gives way to a bright, light perfumy dryness. Fuckin’ good. Sterling Hops dominate, without overwhelming. Beautifully balanced. Best at slightly less than cellar temperature. Sushi (extra wasabi, thank you very much) anyone?

Cheers…
