grimreaperguru (233) - santee, California, USA - APR 11, 2014
Pours a dark ruby red color with a short lived off white head. It has a earthy, nutty aroma to it. The flavor was of chalk, syrup, bitter hops with a light booze note to it. The body was a little above medium with a bitter aftertaste. Overall an okay beer at best.

22 ounce bottle Brown pour. Nice start with chocolate up front. Some tasty roast. Not very heavy in taste for the big abv, but decent.

GIJOE (592) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Pours brown with a thin beige head. Nose is malt. Taste is sweet. Fairly bland for the style. I wouldn't turn it down, but it's nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

monk191 (806) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2013
A very nice brown. Pours a very thick, quite nice red-brown with a light white head. Smells like brown sugar and hops. Taste is thick, starts off smooth, lots of brown sugar or maple sugar coming in at the middle, with the hops in the finish. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maltman53 (277) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - OCT 24, 2013
This imperial brown ale had all that you want on the nose and plate: coffee, toffee, chocolate, and malty depth, finishes clean. A nice strong brown ale for winter stews.

matthewjk (890) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Malty / sweet monster with undercurrents of herbaceous bitterness. Not what I would call my favorite imperial brown ale I have encountered in combat, but certainly not the worst. 22oz bomb courtesy of craftbeerconnect.com
