3.75/5 rDev +6.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: brown-gold in color, 1/2 inch head, high carbonation, clear
Smell: pale malt and toffee
Taste: woodsy hops, pale malt, alcohol, and toffee
Mouthfeel: high carbonation, medium body, sweet start with bitter middle and end, dry
Overall: I tried rating this to style as it is better than several beers I have had of this style. That said, of the 2X series it is probably my least favorite. It meets the style, but the extra alcohol really does not do much for me flavor wise. The rest is just an ok beer. I will pass in the future.

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
