22oz bottle into shaker glass. 2011 release

This beer pours a nice clear copper with decent slightly off white head. Head dissipated quickly and lacing was not prevalent
Nose consisted of grassy hops, grains and a heavy bready malt.
The taste was not as hoppy as I had surmised from the nose. There is the grassy bitterness accompanied by some onion. To me, this beer tasted like plain potato chips, A LOT. There was also a lot of nuttiness to it that wasn't balanced that well with the hops. Mouthfeel was crazy dry, way too much, and tacky. Overall I think this was a fail in the To Thee series. I really enjoyed the BB winter warmer and the Snowmageddon was decent but this one didn't do it for me.

Interesting seasonal introduced by Rahr.

They've turned up the recipe a bit with the malt, hops and alcohol content which has made a special brew for a once a session tasting.

I do not recommend it for people inclined to Ales or prefer malt as
this beer is not for everyone.

Golden, slightly hazy, not a lot of head.

Bread, biscuit malt, sweet caramel like notes.

Taste follows smell. There is some bitterness on the finish.

Full bodied, grainy, well carbonated, a bit creamy.

Meh, nothing special really, but nothing really wrong with it either.

22oz bomber into a snifter

A: Orangish amber color. Slight head that didn't last. Some lacing.

S: Earthy, musky, a littly fruity. Really not that pleasant.

T: It's well balanced, but that's about where it ends. Just not digging this at all. Some caramel notes, and some earthy as well. Good hop bitterness but nothing in the taste or aroma.

M: Definitely pretty thick and a little sticky on the tongue. Sticks around in your mouth for a while. Nice carbonation.

O: Can't say that I've ever had an Imperial Pilsner before, so it's hard to compare it, but I just didn't enjoy it. Tasted like a light pilsner they just upped the grain bill on and didn't really add any backbone to or anything interesting.

This is the newest release in the breweries To Thee series.

The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the bread with some grassy hops. The flavor is more of the same. I get some low bitterness from the grassy and earthy hops as well as some toffee and bready malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not as good as the last two releases: Bourbon Barrel Winter Warmer and Snowmageddon.

Enjoyed on tap at the Rahr brewery sponsored Iron Mash award dinner

Aroma: Light overall aroma with spicy peppery hops and a slight honey aroma. There was also that “water” smell that I can’t seem to describe any better.

Appearance: Dark gold glass with a hint of red crowned with a fair white cover that left a couple spots of lace.

Flavor: Deep bittering hops. The beer has a soak your chops bitter aspect to it and some caramel sweetness that tries to bring it back into balance, but fails. I put this into the “hop bomb” category.

Mouthfeel: Bone dry finish, moderate carbonation.

Overall Impression: A very dry, very embittered beer. Overall I found it just a touch harsh between the bittering hops and a noticeable alcohol flavor. That said, it was well made, just not quite my personal cup of tea. I learned they only made 100 kegs, and there are only about 33 left. You might want to hurry if you want a sample, they weren’t sure they were going to make this one again.

Poured a dark golden hue with a 1 inch head that slowly settles. The aroma of grass, grains and there is a bit of citrus hidden in there.

Sip after sip begins with a strong gain flavor along with some hop bitterness. This feels a little heavy and to me a bit sweet. The alc was hidden when I first started the bomber but once this warms some it gets more of a bite. One of the most enjoyable parts of this was the finish. I like the hop dryness and the light oil like coating on the tounge. This was fairly drinkable and a nice shot at the style.
