Picked up a bomber from the San Diego Whole Foods back in late July for $6.99. Bottle date is smudged.

Beer poured cola brown with a nice tan head that is still hanging around.

Nose is roasted coffee and cocoa.

Taste is a big malt base with roasted coffee and dark cocoa. There is enough hopping to keep the sweetness at a minimum. Finish is dry.

Mouthfeel is full and pretty smooth.

Overall this is a delicious beer! There are not a lot of imperial brown ales out there so jump on this if you come across it!

4.11/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Very dark brown with a two-finger head
S: The cocoa nibs and coffee mentioned on the label are prominent aromas (note cocoa nibs not chocolate). After that toasted malt and a bit of toffee
T: Matches the nose perfectly. Bitter cocoa & coffee with some pleasant malted notes
M: Medium-bodied, a bit bitter
O: This beer does a great job of featuring its additions and is quite tasty as such. That being said I feel it could use a bit more hop/alt support for balance as the additions are almost all I taste. That would take it from very good to great. Overall a very well made beer & I enjoyed it
