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.

Fatehunter (2275) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Poured into a snifter. The pour was a dark golden color, once in the glass more copper with hues of red and brown. A quarter inch of off-white head. Very malty smelling, spicy; like rye (I wonder if it is actually in here) and some ripe banana. It is quite "full" smelling, leaving me satisfied. A malt punch in the mouth. Sweet throughout and a little alcohol; surprising for its relatively moderate ABV. A nice bitter ending makes this American Strong Ale enjoyable. The mouthfeel is a little syrupy, moderate carbonation and medium bodied. Overall, a nice ale that does as advertised "...Malty, Robust..."

Andrew196 (1474) - Katy, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle to glass - pours a dark, tinted amber with a sudsy light beige head. Aroma is very malty and rich, caramel but well rounded with a floral, pine edge. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty standard for the style, malty toastiness, nice bitter finish with apple and traces of spice.

Zymurgeist2 (1869) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 18, 2016
From bomber to tulip. Moderate chocolate aroma dominates. Slight bready background. Clear copper-brown with retained off-white head. Taste is sugary and sweet. Slight floral aspects and finishes rather bitter.

Brewhemia (209) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2016
Beautiful deep amber beer with very little off white head. Aroma of dried fruits and toast and light sense of coffee. Really nice taste with lots of sweetness but balanced by roasted malty notes and some coffee notes. Pleasant experiance.

Luvystypotables (1694) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2016
A dark Amber color with a foamy tan head. Aroma of malt, bread and a hint of chocolate. Tastes of bread and mat with some caramel and hops. Medium body with a malt finish.

Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2016
Tempting lacy head. Fresh fruity smell with some promising tones of oak. Robust flavor with malt and acidy fruit, a little coffee, some bready parts and warm grass lawns. A bit too much alcohol perhaps. Can be recommended, though.
