3.85/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

A- Fairly standard pour gives me a glass of head. eventually dies down to show crystal clear light orange-copper beer. big white head with amazingly stratified lace all down the glass

S- pound cake, resinous hop, toast, some intense fruit upfront, whisp of dried-fruit character...none really appropriate for style, but very inviting anyway

T- fruity, good and deep malt falvor, maybe some caramel/crystal, grassy hop, safron?. Really very balanced and clean in the finish.

MF - This is the only place where alcohol is aparent, slightly warming, but serves mostly to "fluff" things up like an expensive vodka, mouthfeel is insanely slick and the whole thing just seems to slip off the palate, kind of makes it less refreshing, beer is quite obviously highly-carbonated, but feels flat in mouth, strange.

I would call this closer to maibock than o-fest. Its kind of funny to think of "imperial" o-fest because that style is all about balance and it just seems contradictory. I must say, for the alcohol content its amazingly balanced and drinkable. I bought this because I was curious. It is kind of neat but I probably won't buy again just because it has niether the warmth or complexity of bock and other high ABV beers, nor the refreshing qualitiesof German session beers, so it really fills no useful role in my cellar or fridge. I don't see it being especially great with food. Still, worth a try.
