look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating. Pours very hazy orange copper color with a 1 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, raisin, pear, brown sugar, herbal, and light earthy hops. Nice malty aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of caramel, toffee, raisin, pear, brown sugar, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, and light earthy hop spiciness. Lingering notes of caramel, toffee, light fruits, brown sugar, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, and earthy hop spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance and complexity of malty flavors; with moderate hop flavor balance; and zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice imperial Oktoberfest lager. Very nice balance and complexity of malty flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering. I could tell this was an older bottle, and it aged nicely.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1pt. 6oz bottle into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: The body has a deep amber color with bright orange highlights and lots of visible carbonation racing to the head. Its head is small but just hangs on to a thin cap which leaves some slick lacing on the glass.

Smell: The aroma is bold and full of rich sweet maltiness and boozy notes with some light citrus/spicy hops in the background.

Taste/Palate: The alcohol is quite noticeable and surrounds a big sweet malty body. Notes of warm sweet bread, caramel and toffee pop out. The hops are lighter but more noticeable towards the finish and they add some needed bitterness for balance. It’s a big full bodied beer with smooth yet still lively carbonation.

Notes: With 9% abv this beer hits hard and slows down its drinkability.

Traditional aroma on this one with kind of hot cereal and toffee sweet scent. It's very malty in the aroma, with just a hint of hops coming through as a kind of spiciness. I wish it was a bit stronger in the smell than it is, but it's not bad.

Orange and slightly opaque in color with a thin, almost non-existent white head. Visible carbonation streaming to the top. Lacing is interesting, it's there, but then disappears.

Tastes a lot better than it's aroma. Biscuits, toast, light caramel and toffee. Alcohol is detectable via the taste as well, and it hit me fairly hard. Full bodied with light carbonation on the plate and a sweet finish. It's a satisfying, strong, great combination to which I say: Prost!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Looks a rich, chestnut brown with some hues of orange to keep it light. The head is a thin finger of mostly white bubbles giving it a creamy look. Not a lot of retention and no initial signs of lacing.

Very malty nose, with some IPA-like non-aggressive scents like pine and orange peel.

The taste is also similar to an IPA, minus the palate-killing bitterness. Malty (toffee) with notes of pine and citrus, and some spices. It's got a lot going on and I can't quite put a finger on all the flavors, but nutmeg and ginger come to mind.

It's certainly spicy like you'd expect it to be, but it's got a sweetness to balance the beer and give it an almost creamy feel. The alcohol provides ample heat in the swallow. Not quite full-bodied, and while bitter is the lasting trait, it's not over the top.

Overall, a really good beer and fairly easy to drink. Heavy Seas scares me because I either really like their selections or I really don't--there isn't much in the middle--but I'm very happy I picked this one up.
