3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Pours an opaque dark brown with a dense and creamy tan head that falls away, leaving a thin rim and plenty of lace. Mild brown bread nose, even when warming up. A bit of molasses in the background. Creamy, silky medium body with soft carb. Brown bread, bread crusts, a bit of molasses on the mid palate with a mild bready finish. Very approachable, very finishable. Just not a hell of a lot happening for 8.5%.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a dark brown with red hints to the edges, the head is about a finger to finger and a half beige. Aroma is malty with a hint of nuts. Taste is roasted malts, light nutty chocolate, and strange metallic hops. I’m torn between liking this and not.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Aroma of biscuit dough, toast, walnuts and some coffee. Flavor is rich, biscuity/toasty malt with a light hop character for balance and no alcohol taste. Medium body with mild carbonation and a smooth, silky mouth feel. This is a great Imperial Brown, it really drinks just like a 5-6% beer. Lots of rich malt and not overly sweet.
