3.78/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle into Mug

Appearance- Deep gold, very clear, white head with good retention, a lot of bubbles coming up

Aroma- Mild for the abv, a pleasant lemon, bready malts, herbal hops, earthy, not getting any alcohol here.

Taste- Much more complex than the smell would suggest. Bready sweet malts, the sweetness runs throughout but there a good bitterness there balancing it out, herbal hops, wood, light lemon, warming alcohol shows up here witch is a bit of a drawback, but it is a 2x.

Mouthfeel- medium full, heavy carbonation, warming alcohol

Overall- I like it considering the fact it is a bigger version of the style. It does have that woodsy feel to it, but the alcohol is not well hidden in the taste which makes it less drinkable. All in all its pretty good, wouldn't seek out but worth a try.

3.68/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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
