COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is an 11.5% Imperial Brown Ale which we have aged in amazing Spanish sweet red barrels from Malaga. Stewart Bowman, our Head Brewer, devised an Imperial Brown Ale designed to perfectly complement the wine flavours and extract maximum depth and character from the giant barrels. We also felt the Imperial Brown Ale was ideally suited to be barrel aged and as well as the infusion of the Malaga wine character will also benefit added complexity and maturity from the time in oak.

olio (6287) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
375 ml bottle. Bottle No. 8617/9987. Bottled on 20.06.2012.
Pours dark red color with no head. Very vinous on the nose, dark berries, some sugary notes and vanilla, maybe some distant port notes. Sweet caramel and plums on the flavor, faint licorice, port wine notes with vanilla, alcohol comes through but keeps at bay. Smooth palate. Better than I expected.

laiti (5793) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
37,5 cl bottle @ lusikka. Bottle #8617/9987, bottled 20.06.2012
Aroma has licorice, spices and some ripe fruits. Feels medicine-like. Flavour is rather medicine-like with strong licorice tones, some saltiness, sweet malts and spicy tones. Also quite strong woody tones – and perhaps porto tones. Not the most typical ASA and also too sweet. Smoothness is nice here anyway.

Lubiere (10158) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
A dark brown ale with a very thin mocha head. In aroma, loads of dark fruits, candy sugar, grassy British hops, vinous character, very nice and smooth. In mouth, a beautiful vinous malt, raisins, surranated hops, licorice, alcohol warmth, beautiful and delicious. #OttBottShare. Thanks Marissa.

Mørk brun, nesten svart med minimalt skum. Mørk sjokolade, lakris og modne bær. Bittersøt smak av mørk sjokolade, kaffe og noe salt. Fyldig med lite kullsyre. Vinøs

SirLimpsalot (2251) - SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
@ Eddan 14-8-30: ganska söt doft. Tydlig smak av russin och alkohol. Fin fyllighet med en något tung eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Bottle. Pours deep chestnut brown with a small, bubbly, off-white film head. Aroma has hazelnuts, red wine, chocolate, cherries, toasted caramel, softly vinious. Low carbonation, fine dry and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of hazelnuts, grapes, oak, vinious, raisins. Lingering, warming finish. Very interesting.
