Poured from bottle during Southern Tier tasting at Pat's Liquors in Porter, IN on 7/23/10.

A: Dark yellow/pale gold color, nice head formation. A goodly amount of carbonation.

S: Very malty aroma. No hops on the nose. Smells like malt liquor.

T: Tastes like malt liquor. Not very appetizing.

M: Smooth, good carbonation.

Overall, I lie the idea of an imperial lager. Could give the chance to have really clear malt flavors. But there has to be less than 9% alcohol involved. This really tasted like malt liquor. It was a tie between this beer and Phin & Matt's for the least pleasing beer of the tasting.

Pours deep gold with a rich white foamy head. Surprising for a brew with a few years of age. Smell is faint..mostly a light boozy sweet smell indicative of age. Taste is bold like a lager with the malt at full flavor, again light booze sweetness lingering in background. Mouthfeel is thick for a lager..definitely heavy. Overall this beer is definitely a true lager, although it loses flavor with the age. Would like to try an imperial beer of this style when fresh.
