[Cask at the Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2005] A red-brown beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted combined with very light notes of hops. The flavor is very sweet with light notes of roasted malt, chocolate, vegetables, and celery. The alcohol prickles the tongue slightly. I wonder where the Imperial in the name comes from in a beer of 4.5% ABV? anders37 (26641) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2007
