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.

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!

Bottled. A dark brown beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and brown sugar. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and butterscotch, leading to a dry finish.
