Drank this one straight out of the bottle. Smells of smoked malts with hints of sweetness and alcohol. The taste matches with a very smokey flavor with subtle sweetness through out. This was my first of the Sam Adams imperial line of beers and I definitely enjoined it.

From my tasting notes: It poured a dark burnt amber, almost opaque with a thin tan head. It had a sweet malty aroma with a hint of burnt chocolate. The flavor was very bold and intense like a barley wine with a sharper smoky burnt malt flavor with the sweet malt hiding underneath. This was a big complex beer that deserves the Imperial moniker. Tasty.
