12oz bottle. Aroma is boozy with carmel malt. The appearance is a deep brown with little lacing. Taste is a dry roasted flavor that turns into a raw malt flavor. Palate is pretty dry. Overall, a decent beer. Have had better browns fo sho.

I love the complexity that this brown ale has. I wish there were more imperial brown ales like this one.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2013 Pours a nice brown colour, smells of coffee accentuate the beer as well as roasted malts. The taste of coffee is very prevalent as well malts, bread, not an over powering beer but definitely not a session.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours brown-copper and transparent with a quick tan head and light lacing. Nose is sugary with a little bread, bananas, and hops. Flavor has a lot of roast and bread on the front, fading very quickly to almost no malt and some light hops and booze. The transition is amazingly fast. Hops come on harder as I drink it more. Finish is still way too fast to make this a particularly good brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle---> lager glass. Pours light brown verging on dark orange with a small white head and decent lace. Roasty aroma with a hint of cedar. Taste is kind of sweet oak, toasted malt and some hop bit at the end. Silky palate but a little on the flat side. An easy drinking beer, but nothing earth shattering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer appears brown, hinting on dark orange. The white head stands in at about a half inch, leaving some sparse lacing on the glass. The aroma brings some sweet fruit and alcohol. Lightly smoky, a bit too sweet. Alcohol presence could be masked better. Overall, this was OK, but I prefer brown ales to have less alcohol and be more sessionable. Too sweet for me to enjoy more than one.
