Gladiator Essedarius Bourbon Imperial Roman Style Ale is unlike any competitor in the colosseum of craft beers, it thunders into the arena like a charioteer at top speed with notes of raisin, cheery,and fig aromas leading; followed by roasted barley, vanilla, and bourbon barrel laced malt coating your tongue. The smoky finish is dry, lingering and complex. A barley wine style ale of epic proportions.

    I bought this a couple years ago and aged for 2 before sampling on NYE. I think that was a good idea, as it may have smoothed it out a bit. Aroma is strong of bourbon and alcohol. Once sampled, the ABV% is somewhat hidden. Flavors of fig, raisin, bread....all kinds of complex malts and hops. Reminded me of some of the He’brew Anniversary beers that have been around. This was on sale for only $7.99 at the time...so wishing I had grabbed 2-3.
