4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Toasted malts & citrus hops aromas. Pours very dark brown, light tan foam. Nice biscuit nose, toasted character, sweet malt, earthy hops, and chocolate. HEAVY syrupy body. Very sweet, with sweet toffee, nuts, caramel, chocolate (sounds like a candybar), but then there is the hops. Very hoppy; earthy leather bitterness, pine, citrus rind, and resin. Finishes with a bitter chocolate flavor along with some wood. Very sticky. Very strong indeed. Its a frisky one. Overall, a very amazing (and strong) Imperial Brown Ale. Definitely a Brown Ale, not really gonna get a score as high as some American Strongs though.

Something just seems a little off. More of a chocolate taste than coffee. Not bad, but much better stouts out there. (I know it's called a double brown but seems like a stout to me)

Bottle at thirdeye11’s birthday party. Brown with a white head. The aroma has a lot of nuttiness with some lightly toasted malt and brown sugar. The flavor is more of the same. I get some nice nutty character, as well as some molasses, cream and toasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Dark nrown with red. A beige head. Lots of spices here. Hops are citrus and fairly big, too. A nice beer that has an "in your face" aspect. I like it.
