Amber-coloured, with a rich, fruity aroma, and a syrupy character. The flavour is rich and tangy, with complex tones of tea, raisins, and toffee, and marked bitterness in the aftertaste. This inspires thoughts of winter nights by the stove, perhaps with a strong cheese and oatcakes. Too rich and alcoholic to have more than a couple, but a good drink in moderation.

Different from the black label cider of the same name and ABV, oddly enough. This one has more bitterness, more alcohol burn, less tannins, no oak notes, slightly less sweetness, and less richness. Overall I really like it, but it doesn't come close to the black label version of Imperial, which is one of my all time favorite ciders. My best guess is the blue label replaced the black label, but its tough to tell. If I can't find the black label one again I'll be disappointed.
