4.4/5  rDev +3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served in a pint glass at Monk's Cafe's "Everybody Must Drink Stone" tasting 5/22/07... 2006 Brew

A - lovely amber color, with a bit of graing in the background. Moderate head (likely from the pour) that mostly diminished as it went bye-bye.

S - a really rich, hoppy scent to this that stuck around in your head for a bit. You know what you are getting into. A bold production of citrus notes jump toward you but let their grips go as you pull more in.

T - being a fan of the style, this was absolutely lovely to me. The IBU's and alcohol let you know you are imbibing an imperial, but the smoothness of finish let you feel at home.

M - few words to describe here, nothing spectacular, or out of the ordinary, somewhere right in between watery and oily.

D - early, often and thoroughly. This, for 10% ABV, really balances the alcohol and hops well together. A must have for any hophead. As the bottle's will tell you, not for the weak of countinence and slim of heart.

You need to have your gameface on when preparing ones self for it, but a must have.
