Cost Plus Wine Shop in Eastern Market is the best place to get beer in Detroit. Picked up a single of Aorta there; no date on the bottle.
Pours very deep ruby; no sediment or murk,completely clear. Has a caramel malt smell with bread and hops mixed in. Has a great roasted malt and piney taste with a wonderful bitter hop finish. The mouthfeel in thick and clingy and transitions into an smooth bittersweet finish.
I have not had many imperial amber ales so its had to compare Aorta to anything. All in all this is an excellent beer. High ABV, smooth malt character with just the right amount of hop kick.
