I poured part of a 22 oz. bomber bottle into a goblet and reserved the rest for a bit later as a sort of "warmer beer" experiment.
It came put a very rich and dark copper color and clear as one would expect from a lager. A very limited bubbly head persisted for less than a minute.
Not a terribly aromatic brew, but I do detect the high amount of malts and suspect the receipe has a ton of caramel malts in it.
The taste is of sweet malt, but in a cloying sweet way. It is there, but overbearing. The hops are but a whisper and it is a nice taste. I honestly expected a bit more of a "wallop" with it being an Imperial Lager.
While the carbonation is not readily apparent, you do feel it is the mouthfeel. Otherwise, there is a sweetness, but nice mouthcoating effect.
Sadly this beer is only average when it comes to drinkability simply because of its high ABV %. So enjoy one and then you have to watch it! Nice effort though and I am glad that I was able to get my hands on this brew with my trip to Colorado.
Oh and my experiment did not add anything to my review. I was trying to figure out if the nose or taste either improved or declined with a bit of warming.
