Madtown1 (13) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2011
According to Lagunitas this beer is "A big Ol’ Imperial Brown Ale to help you with your slipperly slide on into springtime. Rich, smooth, dangerous & chocolatey". It’s a good brew. A - Rich, deep, opaque brown color with tan frothy head that lasted only few minutes. S - A rather mild aroma hints of caramel malts and citrus hoppiness...pleasant aroma. I didn’t really get any chocolate though. T - Tastes like it smells... Caramel comes through nicely, citrus hoppiness...faint chocolate. Something kinda spicy at the end...nice though. M - medium in body D - refreshing and damn drinkable...especially at $4.50/pint Serving type: on-tap

Clear amber, covering lace. Full body, smooth texture, moderate flavor, hot mouthfeel, good length. Pronounced bitterness, dry but less so at the finish. Intensely hoppy, rich caramel background flavor. Strong personality, very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bill Becker (1369) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 6, 2017
Bottled 199th day of 2017. Pours brown, great head of foam and lacing. Roasted Brown Ale nose with a citrus bitterness and booze. The underlying Brown Ale, I like. The intense bitterness and intrusive alcohol, I don't. No problems or complaints aboot the mouthfeel. Not for me. Not this fresh at least.

Quite bitter, only medium body. I think this beer is a barley wine effectively. Overrated on ratebeer.bottle on Berkeley ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oobawa (1658) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Nice giant brown ale, big on dark malt goodness, possibly even bigger on the piney, resinous hops. Giant doses of chocolate-laced caramel are backed up by the slightest hint of Lagunitas orange marmalade hops, underscored by a slight red apple yeastiness that helps balance out the clingy, IBU-flinging finish. Modest notes of dried apricot and raisin lie way, way underneath all the crazy malting, but mostly this beer’s like sipping a candybar pinecone milkshake. Okay, not really, but it’s still pretty damn good.

Klar, brun, beiget skum. Doft: Torkad frukt, syrligt, metall, bränt socker, coca-cola. Smak: rund och maltig, råg, ganska mild, beska och papper i eftersmak, aningen vattnig och spretig.

Flaska från SB, ca 1 år gammal? Provning med ölsällskapet. Kastanjebrun med gräddigt beiget skum som lämnar lite rester längs kanterna. Knäckig och nötig doft med karamell, brunt socker, lätt rågsyra, molass, blöt kartong. Len medium/lätt kropp. Smak av knäck, karamell, nötiga toner, grädde, kakao och en matt maltighet. Fortfarande markant beska som balanserar upp de maltiga tonerna väl. Riktigt trevlig!
