COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our original ruby brown premium beer, Brodie’s Prime, brewed to export strength and bottle conditioned to create a rich, complex, strong dark ale. English Maris Otter malted barley, dark malts and a medley of English and American hops produce aromas of dark chocolate, treacle sweet flavours, roasted bitterness, a surprising fruitiness and a long dry finish.

TheKernOwl (188) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Herby spice and a little espresso in a fruity (hops driven?) malt nose sweet like dates. Velvety oily mouthfeel which is unusually good for a brown ale; caramel then some bitterness on the way out. Like a maltier, much more wintery version of the same brewery’s sundown.

colui72 (662) - HONG KONG - JUN 21, 2016
I was surprised when I read "Imperial stout" on Ratebeer... more of an old ale, than a stout or a porter. It pour dark brown, nearly black, but clear. Medium beige head, great lacing. Very rich aroma: cherry. oak, smoke, chocolate. Nose sensations are fully confirmed in the palate, which adds more oak and brandy aftertaste. Body is quite light, but it’s quite boozy. To me, an excellent ale!
