32oz growler filled at Heinen's in University Hts., Ohio.

Growler poured into a tulip. Pours a dark golden/amber with solid clarity; small off-white head that fades leaving decent retention and little lacing. The aromas are malt forward. Some caramel and toffee lead the way. Some toast and fresh bread. Some corn. The flavors basically follow the nose. More caramel and toffee. Some cherries in the mix. More toast and bread. Strong malt backbone. It's slightly sweet and sticky, but nothing cloying or over the top. Mild warmth in the finish, but it's not hot or boozy at all. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with soft moderate carbonation. It's fluffy, smooth and ultimately dangerously drinkable. Makes for a nice sipper.

This is a nice "Imperial Marzen". It's bold and drinks big. The craftsmanship is on point. Enjoyable stuff. I like it.
