Pours vibrant ruby with a small off-white head that sticks around for the duration of the glass. Some lacing present.

Sweet caramel/toffee malts in the aroma. Slight citrus/floral hop component, but leans toward malty.

Simlar flavors. Lots of big sweet caramel notes without ever being too sweet. A little bit of nuttiness on the back end. Some citrus and floral hops provide a bit of balance.

Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

A little light for an imperial, but pretty tasty. I'd prefer a few more hops, but there were still enough to balance and prevent it from becoming cloying. Fans of maltier styles will love this as mouthfeel is again spot on.

Serving type: on-tap
