aroma is floral hops hidden beneath cleaner malts, very low caramel with almost no sweetness despite wonderfully caramelized color and active carb. flavor is odd herbal sweetness, brown sugar up front with a bitterness that lingers later. an odd bird of a brown ale.

Interesting concept: two brewers using the same recipe. Unfortunately, it resulted in a confused outcome: syrupy, heavy on the palate and pretty boring.

ICEatALAMO (925) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle. Pour is a light brown. The aroma has mostly roasted nuts, and some sweetness. The taste is interestingly sweet. Better than I was thinking, but far from a normal "strong ale".

Hazy red - amber beer, small pale tan head. Semi soft dry palate. A little toffee malt. Fruity coca cola. The fruit is complex and sweet. Minerally dry finish. Comes over quite Belgian - lacks a bit of body but a nice beer.

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2012
12oz bottle. Poured a brown color with a small sized off white head. Caramel, roast, and dark fruits. Chocolate in the tastes too. Sweeter than the Arbor version (side x side comparison).

Damico (2562) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Pours bubbly amber in color with a beige head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is light sweet malts again like the arbor. The flavor brings some sweet and almost a bit of tang on the malts with a light bitter hoppy dry ending, not so pleasant on my palate though.

libertine (203) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2012
pours a murky brown with a tan head.aroma is sweet and malty.actually smells a lot higher in abv than it is.taste is malt,dried dark fruits and burnt sugars.has a fully body and a thin syrup mouthfeel and a very long bitter finish.this is one of those beers where you just dont know what to say about it.its not horrible,but in the same token its not good.

Shared at the Royale gathering last night, thanks Blake! Imperial Brown Ale? Old Ale? I dunno, I guess it doesn’t matter because whatever it was supposed to be, it was only so-so. Mushy, residual, oxidized malt sweetness with little or no hops presence. Somewhat sour and harsh. Full-bodied, low carbonation, sticky aftertaste. Eh.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2012
12 oz. bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks, Blake! Dark Horse version, 2011 release, black cap. Pours a somewhat murky brownish-amber with a small beige head. The aroma is pretty faint, with caramel malts, nuts, raisins, and brown sugar. The flavor is pretty much the same- dark dried fruits, nuts, caramel malts, and brown sugar. Not a whole lot going on here. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel with some grit late. We couldn’t figure out what this was supposed to be; a little research reveals ’imperial brown ale’.

crackedmachine (470) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2012
Pours a cloudy, murky brown with a medium, short-lived head the color of brown sugar. Aroma of sweet dried pit fruits and malts. Flavor is heavily malty and sweet, with tons of dried fruit, a little cocoa, a hint of coffee grounds, and a very slight sour kick. Medium bodied and very drinkable. Very tasty.
