asmithbeer (71) - California, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle - Reddish brown, no head. Toasted malty aroma, decent. Flavor has toasted cereal notes, but also is kinda sour/bitter; a bit off. Not worth trying again.

22oz bottle - Pouring the beer into my glass, I noticed that the head formation was really lacking and I couldn’t remember the last time a beer had such poor pour. Aroma was slightly tart, it had dirty penny, iced tea with just an underlying note of brown sugar. Nutty malt flavors with just a twist of tartness. Some fruity character is also present which I assume is the yeast? Kinda reminds me a little of a poorly made dubbel. Not a waste for $3/bottle.

"kinda subpar, especially when calling it an imperial. abv may be higher, but really it’s just more muddled and rather weakish dark malt flavors, very slight hop and chocolate presence, and some fruity sweetness that doesn’t seem to belong. not a drainpour, but not a deal either, at any price."

Whenever i open a beer that i have never tried, I always smell it first!! Did anyone else smell right off the bat... vinegar???.. I did and so did my Brother.. Did we get a bad bottle? cause i’d like to think that nobody would knowingly brew something this terrible!

Pours a reddish brown color with a khaki head. Malt, caramel, toffee and nut aroma. Toffee, caramel, malt, nut, fruit and some hop flavors. Medium body and carbonation. Toffee finish.

Jcarb28 (97) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - APR 1, 2014
Poured a dark amber brown. Light roasted, malty, sweet notes. Not too full bodied to the taste with a nutty caramel the sweet taste. A slight sour malt on the palate lingers after the drink.

Landmonger (156) - USA - MAR 24, 2014
Pleasant surprise. Not what I expected but still enjoyed, dark brown in color with a thin head, crisp carbonation, thin mouth feel, taste of malt, some fruitness, sourness is prevalent, the lingering sourness and then more warmth than you would expect from a 7.2 abv. Try it with an open mind don’t expect a Brown and you may like it. I did.

22 oz bottle from BevMo. Oak comes through at the end. Has a pleasant sour note. For five bucks and change this is worth trying.

boozedude (2159) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2013
bpomber into glass, bazy brown pour with white head, aroma is super akward, kind of a fruity apple sour something, taste is like a bandaid, kinda crappy, would not try again

Cannot believe the poor reviews on this one -- this beer is a STUNNING brown ale, and perhaps my favorite. Nuttiness on the nose carries through with dominance in taste. Chewy malt base, and some spiciness to round things out. Solid A in my book. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
