Not sure why anyone would rate this below my score, but this is hands down the best brown ale I’ve ever tasted. Has a strong coffee taste, with a slight bitterness and pours a solid head. Marlow’s in Dunwoody has this on tap right now 3/20/14. They actually do a great job on their draft beer selection.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2011 On tap at Trappeze pub in Athens, GA. Great beer from a unique upstart brewery. Complex malt profile. Coffee notes are present but not overpowering. Hops finish strong but are well balanced.

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

Dark brown, heavy aroma of coffee/chocolate, smooth hint of oak, no trace of alcohol, with a thick & silky mouthfeel from the lactose. My absolute favorite brown ale.

Deep brown with a reddish tint and thick off-white head and lacing. Malty, coffee and chocolaty aromas with a touch of baking spice.Palate is silky smooth, rich with coffee and dark chocolate. Lingering smoky chocolatey finish. Very, very good winter warmer without being very heavy.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, auburn colored body, and a foamy wheat colored head, towering well above the rim of my mug, made this an attractive pour. The smell had a a lot of toffee, chocolate, and coffee aromas readily apparent, with coffee being detectable before even bring the nose to the glass. The taste abounded with the same themes, with a coffee dominated flavor profile, with hints of an oily oatmeal like flavor as well. The finish was soft and chocolaty, and there was very little aftertaste. This was definitely a solid offering from this new local brewer. I look forward to sampling more.

Pours nice & dark brown. No doubt an Imperial brown due to the significant hop background. Cool label design too. A nice cool weather ale.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draught @ Cypress Street. 12 oz pour into a tulip. Dark brown with a big frothy white head, only lasted a couple of sips but left the glass covered in lace. Aroma was of some lightly roasted sweet malts, somewhat nutty, chocolate malts, and a tinge of coffee. Taste was light roast up front, small amounts of coffee throughout, very subtle though, there was also a bitterness throughout helping to balance all of the malt. There was also a bit of vanilla sweetness. Extremely smooth all around, there was a bit of heat in the finish. This is a goto brew, just wonderful stuff. Can’t wait for bottles.

Draught at j Clyde. Motor oil brown pour with medium off white head and good lacing. Coffee and brandy aromas. These are echoed on the palate along with a nice sweetness and driedfruit. This is a fun beer!

Bottle thanks to jwr07
Pours deep amber, with some lacing. Has a blend of earthy tones, nuttiness, and is somewhat savory. Very malty, tastes a little like carbonated sweet wort, hides the alcohol well too.
