Notes/Commercial Description:
Pours dark brown in color with a tan head with notes of caramel, toffee, chocolate and toasted bread. Flavors of caramel, toffee and chocolate notes open with interjecting notes of wood and herbal bitterness from English hop varietals then moving back into semi-sweet chocolate, caramel and toffee and is dried out in the finish with toasted malt notes that resemble roast peanuts.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/22/2012. Pours almost black dark brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel, molasses, toast, toffee, chocolate, roasted malt, raisin, prune, light nuttiness, and earth; a bit of estery alcohol that reduces a bit as it warms. Pretty nice aromas with good malt complexity and balance. Taste of caramel, chocolate, toast, toffee, nuttiness, roasted malt, dark bread, molasses, light dark fruit, and light earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, chocolate, toast, toffee, molasses, nuttiness, dark bread, light dark fruitiness, and light earthy spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of malt flavors; some slight estery off flavors, but not too bad; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good imperial brown ale. Huge robustness of flavor with good balance; and quite smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.
