Pours a nice copper brown, leaves lacing. Smells great. I get a big chocolate malt smell, some caramel. Taste is just straight up malty overall. Fairly well balanced beer, big chocolate and caramel malt up front and a lingering bitterness. I little bit of an almond taste up front. It finishes with a sense of alcohol and a hint of espresso. Let this beer warm up. It went from "ehh" to "wow, that's pretty good" in my glass.

Really good beer, but I think it's just a tad too bitter. Not much at all, but just a lingering bitterness that seems a bit out of place.

I'd definitely buy this again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear, brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of roasted malt, sweet malt, chocolate, hint of coffee, slight syrup, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of an American Brown Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight chocolate, slight yeast, and slight hop. Overall, good aroma, feel, body, and blend.

Serving type: on-tap

big thanks to barrelandzachary for sending this my way as well as a counter-pressure fill of the special winter ale (Bulleit Bourbon aged version of Ode To Mercy) which i opened side-by-side with this.

Enjoyed from a sixpoint snifter.

a - brew poured a ruby highlighted chestnut with a finger of creamy head that never fully left. lacing was a wall of creamy foam and moved as a whole.

s - nose is coffee...nut...roast. brown sugar and earthy grain.

t - bam. there it is...imperial brown ale on coffee. as advertised. solid one at that. the coffee is a bit heavy handed over the brown and dialed back quite a bit with the special winter version (and then coated in caramel happiness...but that's the other beer). so yeah, this beer is a good imperial brown ale, but next to that special winter version...doesn't hold a candle. worth checking out though if you like browns with bitter coffee.

m - a bit dry and bitter on the finish and prickly carbonation.

o - overall, super solid imperial brown with coffee. check it out...but hot dog...dat special winter ale version of this beer...kill or maim for that one.
