COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Barn Owl Imperial Brown is brewed in the style of southern English brown ale, only much stronger (7.9% ABV). A myriad of specialty malts impart a smooth, layered flavor with notes of chocolate, caramel, and biscuit shining through. The perfect beer to celebrate the beginning of spring.

Koelschtrinker (13119) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
Schokladig röstiger, dazu passend bitterer Antrunk. Die Schokoladigkeit steigt erstaunlich stark an, spart sich dabei die Süße aber komplett aus. Brotig, rund würzig. Wenig Karamell. 10/11/12/12/10/12
