COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bold, imperial brown ale gets its body from a team of malts including Caramel malt for sweetness, flaked barley for dense foam, a bit of Chocolate malt for its deep color and Aromatic and Munich malts to add even more depth. German and Perle hops add a touch of bitterness to balance the malty sweetness. The addition of rich Sumatra coffee takes this perfectly balanced imperial brown ale to a decadent level.

Smell of tar. Dark brown colour, beige head. Aroma of nuts, oak, alcohol, hops, cognac. Bitter and sweet Ashy palate. Surprisingly light body.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017 Bellissima brown Ale, nera con sottile schiuma beige chiaro. Al naso malto. Tostato e aroma distinto di caffè molto particolare. Al palato si conferma la nota di caffè, cioccolato amaro, tostatura. Rotonda, armonica, amaricante con bel corpo pieno. Buona e unica.

Toffee-caramel brew. Coffee is a bit present in the nose and in the aftetaste. A bit bitter. Interesting (kind of brown ale like).

Lots of coffee in nose followed by some chocolate and caramel. Pours dark brown with beige head. Taste is sweet to medium sweet with espresso, capuccino, some chocolate and caramel. Medium bitter finish, soft carbonation, average body. Overall very good, maybe one-dimensional but very tasty.

Nie ukrywam, że spodziewałem się więcej. Tym niemniej piwo chyba daje to, co obiecuje. W aromacie głownie kawa - taka zwietrzała, z nutami strychu. W smaku również kawa z lekką, kakaową bazą. Dobre.

BroSpud (2233) - , Massachusetts, USA - OCT 11, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours brown with very little tan head and plenty of sediment lingering at the bottom. Really tasty brown with the coffee notes coming through perfectly. Did not notice the high abv until I felt it. Wow. Good stuff!

SB Hultsfred, flaska. Stor kaffearom med förvånande ljust skum. Svart svart svart. ... Fyllig kaffe med balans mot beskan. Founders tar inga fångar....

I carry a certain amount of bias into this one because I'm a coffee freak, but nonetheless, the smooth, bold, and nutty Sumatra coffee flows lovingly through the caramel and light cocoa base malts. Has a rich dark brown color with creamy small head of light tan foam. Again, coffee is the theme here every which way. Founders aced it.

Maakun (6285) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Clear mahogany with beige head and a few floaters. Lots of caramel, sweet coffee, toffee, sugar, light cocoa. Mostly sweet malts with coffee, maybe light maple and brown leaves. Light dark bread. Over medium sweet and medium bitter. Over medium bodied with light alcoholic finish.

3.8
sjogro (4635) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle shared at Puttetjes. Dark brown with greyish head. Big coffee and dark roasted malts. Moderate sweet and bitter. Medium body and soft carbonation. Creamy coffee and chocolatey niciness.
