Obtained a 6 pack at a local distributor. 12 oz poured into pint glass.
A: Nice copper color with an insane amount of carbonation visible. Good for the style.
S: I must admit, there is not much there at first. Had to drink 8 oz for the beer to open up. The most prominent smell is the alcohol and malts. I think this may be due to the fact that the beer is just about 3 months from the bottling date.
T: Butterscotch and alcohol followed by malts and a lingering hop presence. Sounds strange but tastes quite good despite being a bit old.
M: Best part of the beer IMO. Light bodied with plenty of carbonation to balance the alcohol.
O: Pretty good beer for the style. I'm a fan of most of the Southern Tier beers I've tried, so I figured it was a must I tried this beer when I saw it. I wouldn't buy an entire 6 again, but could see myself having one or two as a session beer on the beach.

Appearance is a cloudy light copper with a half finger of lacing. This offering is heavier in both body and flavor than the standards of this style. The flavor is malty with an almost molasses-like sweetness. The finish is semi-dry and lightly bitter. There is also a faint lingering sweet note.
I think that this experiment proves that not all beer styles are better "doubled" or "imperialed."
Serving type: on-tap
