HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy and GregClow, my bottle via trade with Ughsmash. Cloudy mahogany with a decent rocky/creamy beige head. Lovely smell - aged oak and sweet boozy brandy up front, chocolate and nut roast malt behind - somewhat dry, but lushly sweet. Taste - the same, wonderfully blended and balanced - Iím sure itís high ABV, but Iím just going to enjoy this one. Creamy, soft, thick - not a long long finish, but it stays on the tongue a while. Lovely - thanks, Jason!

Thanks to Suttree for sharing this one. Clear dark brown with a creamy tan head. Perfumy bourbon aroma. Creamy smooth malt palate with nicely subdued bourbon notes.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Bottle, courtesy after4ever. Pours clear brown with ruby highlights and a lacy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar molasses. Medium body. Taste plays to my sweet tooth, with a slice of bread to put all the sugar on.

12-oz. Thanks, Pantanap! Murky, grainy mahogany with a thin but dense moussy tan head. Not much lace. Sweet caramel, brown bread, and brown sugar nose. Medium body, moderately tingly carb. Thereís that bread and sugar again on the mid-palate. Joined by some nut and cola notes. Long, sticky, sugary-sweet finish. This is a real sugar bomb.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Vanilla, oak, molasses, caramel malts. bourbon barrel aging are most apparent. Bit smoky. May be first Impy Brown Iíve had. More sweet and malty than I prefer but a nice high end offering. As unique as their regular bourbon barrel aged brown, which is saying alot.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle from someone. Harsh, wheaty aroma, a touch of old grape and oak. Not so bad in the taste, but brandy influence is too strong, and the base beer tastes thin and week. Alcohol is dominant. Lightly hoppy. Goes down pretty easy. Not great.

Very nice. Pours brown in color with a small tan head. Nice aroma of brandy and vanilla, maybe a hint of oak. Pleasant alcohol warmth. Tastes of brandy, oak, vanilla, light caramel malt. A great beer.

Aroma of sweet malt and a light hint of abv. A clean cola brown with light an head and sticky lace. A mellow flavoer of buttery malt a nice warmness. Good carbonation just a bit thin and I mean just a bit. A good beer a little warm and a tad thin. thanks Phil
