Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mothman on 06-27-2014

The fourth release in our Planets Series shines the spotlight on specialty malts, while the hops take on more of a supporting role. Brewed with seven different varieties of malt and hopped for a balanced bitterness, this Imperial Brown Ale has bready, biscuity, toasty notes along with light chocolate and roast flavors. This beer is robust, warming and satisfying like the piece of music it was named after.

For as hard as it is to get its kind of a let down. If anything I'd say its a slightly below average brown ale.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 2/15/2015. Pours hazy reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, light cocoa, light nuttiness, herbal, light pine, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of big caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, light cocoa, light nuttiness, herbal, light pine, and toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, light cocoa/nuttiness, light pine, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and slightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice imperial brown ale style. All around good complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bottle > Sensory SA glass

A - Clear brown with a nice thick two finger head, medium lacing.
S - Aroma is very mixed, lots of different roasted nuttiness goin on, definitely some spices, cinnamon, clove.
T - There's a lot more spice, coffee, and chocolate notes in this than are really required. This really tastes more like a winter warmer.
M - Medium feel, a little chewy
O - Confused Identity is what this beer is all about, when I first started on it i thought it was a decent brown ale then once it climbed a few degrees in temperature it tasted pretty much a winter warmer kinda beer. Lots of spice
