WTF Ale. A malty, robust, jobless Recovery Ale! We’re not quite in the Red, or in the Black... Does that mean we’re in the Brown?

A big Ol’ Imperial Brown Ale to help you with your slipperly slide on into springtime. Rich, smooth, dangerous & chocolatey.

This is very much a Lagunitas beer: poured a deep brown, had a balance of hops and malts and was easy to drink. I thought this tended to be a bit heavier on the darker flavors side with more of the malt undertones than the usual hop presence though.

Tap at Brown Iron Brewhouse. Pours deep orange, malty color, white head. Lacing clings. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, some mild orange notes, citrus sweetness, sugar. Flavor is caramel, pretty big bitter notes. Not that complex. Underwhelmed for a Lagunitas offering.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 My best experience with Lagunitas yet! The appearance is a rich/clear mahogany color with a thin white head. The aromas consist of toast, caramel malt, earthiness and spicy hops. On the taste there are big malt forward flavors of toffee, caramel, and some whole grain bread. The finish is dry contributed by a spicy/earthy/floral hop combo.

Pours a dark brown with tan head that clings and lasts. Aroma is pungent - more so than expected for the style with a hop presence that’s more like a strong ale. Flavor is similarly hoppy. Not bad, and pretty smooth as is usually the case with this brewer, but not what I want for this style. The malts are there in the background, just unbalanced. Finish is lingering bitter.

Barreras (1570) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Pours a deep brown with a dark roasted malt aroma. Taste is dark fruit mixed with a chocolate malt flavor. A nice complex brown beer that had a good malty bitterness in the aftertaste.

$4.00 Bomber from Costco. Dark amber with a lasting beige head. Roasted malt and some sweetness in the aroma. Upfront malt on the first sip with a fair amount of hop bitterness to balance the sweet malt with a roasted barley taste. Medium to full body with a good amount of carbonation in this one. Sweet finish that is filling.

Pours a hazy dark reddish brown with a lasting beige head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is full of toffee malts with some pine resin and earthy herbs. Taste is sweet to begin with before a bitter finish kicks in. The aftertaste is almost smoky, making you wonder what hit you: rye? resin? the bandoneon player from a tango band? Body is medium to full with noticeable carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. I’m a big fan of Lagunitas’ nice-priced bombers, and this is one I’ll seek again.

Pours dark copper with lasting off white lacing. Ample carbonation and a malty initial taste is followed with dry finish. Very nice.

Panzuriel (1962) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Appearance: Darker Red Brown. Opaque. Finger of white foam. Nose: Caramel, pine hops with some grass and citrus. Taste: sweeter malt with caramel notes. Good pine hops with a bit of grapefruit as well. Body: Medium to fuller. Good carbonation Parting thoughts: Very nice beer. $5 at my local grocer for a bomber. Time to stock up.
