50 cL bottle (batch 278, also had the original batch 100 back in 2005). Pours dark brown with an off-white lacing head. Sweet malty, slight fruity aroma. Thick chocolate and hoppy fruity flavoured. Nice dark malty and bitter finish. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A hazy very dark red beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is quite hoppy - subtle, but still with a sharpness from the hop acids. The flavor is lovely quite malty sweet, with some notes of caramel to start off - I just got the thought - is this an IIPA? But soon after strong notes of hops hit me - at first just subtle aroma hops, but then the bitterness strikes - and it strikes quite hard with lots of alfa acid. The bitterness totally dries out the mouth - while the alcohol warms the throat. To me this is a little too malty and not quite hoppy enough to be an Imperial IPA - so I’ll go with ChristianSA with the style description as Imperial Brown Ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful, dark reddish chestnut colour with a small off-white head that collapses rather fast. Almost fatty hop aroma. Loads of caramel in here and roasted malts. A sugary sweetness underlies the very marked bitterness. Very warming alcohol. Rather classical American Imperial IPA. 160905

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2006 Bottled at RBESG. Copper colour. Rich grapefruit aroma. Dry with rounded mouthfeel. Feels strikingly salty. There’s an abundance of hops and also alcohol. Lingering bitter finish. Uncompromising, and not really striving for balance, but more importantly: tasty!

Very dark brown beer. Soft palate, light and semi creamy. Rich creamy malt with a nice dark toffee. Fades in to caramel and then just a little contrasting hop. A little aniseed in the finish. A sumptuos beer!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light maroon color with a tiny bubble head that setles quickly to rim bubbles, great lacing.
Aroma of scotch and spice, possibly cinnamon.
MALT!! One of the other tasters said "this one is hi octane." Decently complex, warmly sweet and satisfying.
Should be consumed with caution, but o/w a very nice one.
