An imperial brown ale.

A refined beauty that’s more than capable of standing on its own. Developed with an understanding of history, it leaves the past behind and moves forward to write its own story.

This Imperial Brown Ale is brewed with house toasted pecans and a perfectly balanced selection of complex malts. Dark roast and hints of chocolate transition into a smooth finish that leaves you wanting more. With each sip it pulls you closer and envelops you in its mysteries, until you are powerless to resist.

I really enjoyed this, but I am surprised it is classified as an American Strong Ale. More of an imperial brown to me. Dark brown appearance, aromas of roasted malt, nuts, chocolate. Flavor was much the same. Alcohol was nicely hidden but you could still tell it was there. Hop bitterness rounded it out in the right proportion. Very enjoyable.

On draft. Roasted coffee aroma. Flavors of juicy chocolate (!), bitter espresso. Lots of promise here. Some but not all is realized.

Tap at the brewery. Pours opaque black with a large, creamy brown head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate malt, dates and prunes, vanilla, lactose and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with dark fruits, light hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

radagast83 (6655) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Sample from the brewery. Poured a clear, dark brown color with a nice slightly off-white head to it. Aroma was sweet malts, nutty character and a touch of chocolate. Flavor was a nice rich caramel flavor with a decent amount of nuttiness and vanilla in it. Touches of chocolate and coffee around the edges finish this one off. Very refreshing and the alcohol is pretty well masked, though there’s a bit of warming on the finish which was fun.

Draft. Nutty, chocolaty, and lightly piney on the nose. The palate settles into a nice, toffee-like and slightly herbal groove. On the whole, lighter than it looks. The alcohol is used to full effect; not a degree more than is necessary to carry the beer to completion.
