On tap at the Pyramid Brewery in Sacramento. Pours a light black with a little bit of light mocha colored head. The aroma is primarily chocolate and roasted malts, with slight notes of dark fruits. The taste gives you those same roasted malts and chocolate, along with a slight bit of bitterness on the back end because of the hops. The mouthfeel is surprisingly light and thin, at least for a 9% ABV beer, and not a whole lot of carbonation.

This beer is just ok, not bad. It's worth giving a try, although the lack of complexity and thickness were disappointing.

Mini-growler from the 16th St Albertsons... Pours chestnut brown with a nice khaki head.. Dry dark toast and nice cocoa essence.. hints of fruity dark cherries are in the background.. Good medium/light thick body.. Good bubble.. Light hints of EtOH.. Textbook piney hops with well rounded maltiness for a PNW Winter Warmer.

Is this really the "super" version? It is remarkably similar to the standard bottle version that I buy a couple every year...

Great winter warmer. Nice dark brown/ caramel color with a tan head. Taste is very satisfying for the style, big malt backbone hides the 8.7% abv. very well, and the hops finish the profile with a nice bite, which improves the drinkability greatly and gives it balance. I haven't had the non imperial version, but this is a great beer.

Growler rom Albertsons. Dark brown pour with nice medium fluffy head. Heads lasts and leaves curtains of lacing. Aroma is dark malt, nuts and bit of prunes. Taste brings more malt, with the bitterness coming from the roast, not the hops. The malt masks the ABV well, not even catching any warmth. Smooth and silky with a small bite.
