look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle. a faint bottling code, but no clear date.

appears very dark brown, with garnet colored highlights. nice creamy tan colored head of very fine bubbles. great head retention and lacing. very boozy strong aroma, a little smokey. taste is fairly well balanced. even though malt flavors dominate the taste, it's not too sweet, it finishes dry. not as boozy as the smell. nice smooth mouthfeel, coats the mouth.

overall - decent, but the flavor has room for improvement.

Drank this one straight out of the bottle. Smells of smoked malts with hints of sweetness and alcohol. The taste matches with a very smokey flavor with subtle sweetness through out. This was my first of the Sam Adams imperial line of beers and I definitely enjoined it.
