Bottled@my birthdaybash@Chriso. Very deep brown colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is big on roasted malts, some mild cedar and some fruity and wooden notes. Flavour is rather similar in a rather mouthdrying way. Lovely!

Bottled at oh6gdx birthday bash at chriso’s. Cloudy dark brown, rich beige head. Tart chocolate aroma. Mid sweet with medium-full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Salty and yeasty, some licorice, plenty of caramel and treacle. Careful perfumy woodiness. Mildly bitter finish with some alchohol.

Nate2Gs Birthday Bash at Kernel. Opaque dark brown beer, big fluffy tan head. Good rich malts. Seems a little lighter than the base beer. Lovely sweet cedar that provides tang and emphasises the fruits in this beer. A little creamy malt. Finishes semi dry. Really interesting what the cedar has done for the great meaty Imperial Brown. Delicious and far too drinkable.

Keg at Nate’s Best Ever Beer Birthday. Pours black-brown with a thick, beige head. Gorgeous. Lovely nose, very faint roast and just a unique, delicate cedar. Wow, delicious flavor. Dark chocolate, light wood but it’s prevalent, dark roast, a bit of meat. Full bodied with smooth carbonation. Very mild warmth, lots of chocolate and cedar wood. Unreal drinkable.
