3.15/5 rDev -10.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Bottled on date 5/30/13.
Appearance: Pours a crystal clear amber-gold color with a one-finger white head, which dissipates quickly. Leaves a nice lacing down the glass.
Smell: Lots of toasted bready malt along with some spicy yeast character. The aroma is somewhat intriguing, although I wouldn't really describe it as appealing either.
Taste: Heavy on the bready malt again, with some sweet caramel coming through. Earthy hops come in on the finish along with a healthy dose of hop bitterness. While certainly not bad, there just isn't much here to hold my attention.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied and smooth, with medium carbonation.
Overall: Making a "double" version of a steam beer is certainly an interesting experiment, but ultimately one that in my opinion does not have to be repeated

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
