12 oz bottle poured into a snifter courtesy of glazeman.
A Vigorous pour yields a half-finger head with little retention. Thick looking brew with excellent lacing. The color on this beer is absolutely perfect for an imperial amber ale - hazy, dark orange, copper.
The nose is wonderful - citrus hops, nuts, woods, honey, and booze.
The taste has several different layers. Honey maltiness up front with a perfect balance of citrus hops. Slightly bitter finish, that is rounded out with an oak aftertaste. This really resembles an oak aged ale, in smell and taste.
Good mouthfeel, but this beer is a little too thick for me for a brew that is such a close relative to an IPA. It could use a little more carbonation and a bit less chewiness.
Extremely drinkable. All in all, an excellent beer - one that I would certainly try again.
