My only criticism of this beer is I should have bought more. It’s got great color, no bitter after taste, smooth flavor and totally perfect on a warm evening.

oobawa (1586) - 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!

ARH (1135) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2017
The aroma starts leathery and a touch burnt, but quickly reveals a potent burnt sugar. It’s a deep brown and red looking body, topped by a soft foamy, tan head. The palate is mostly sweet, balanced by a roasted bitterness with mostly caramel, chocolate, and a roasted coffee quality on the tongue with a bit of herbal and a dry finish.

This is fantastic. This is definitely a big ol imperial brown ale. It’s an absolute malt and coffee bomb and it’s 100% delicious. It’s has a huge brown sugar aroma which is amazing, and a nice roasty maltiness that just dominates. It’s super sweet, super tasty and just an overall malt bomb, but in a good way. It’s how I would want malt to be presented in a beer. I love how lagunitas pumps out these beers that are so delicious, but so reasonably priced. It blows my mind. Just another testament to how awesome they are. Cheers! Pick up this malt monster now.
