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.

Bricks (956) - Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Nice clear, amber/red color with foamy off-white head and some carbonation apparent. A lot of malt on the nose... a bit too sweet smelling and unbalanced, but nice. Tastes like a hybrid of an IPA and a Scottish ale. Maybe some cocoa in there. Fairly smooth. Very balanced with a nice bitter. Not very complex, Pretty decent.
