On tap at San Marcos Brewery. This is an Imperial Brown.

A: Dark brown with a crimson tinge and a small white head.

S: Baked bread with notes of nuts and biscuit. There's a moderate caramel presence with a touch of toffee and an earthy hop profile.

T: Sweet bread with nutty notes. Caramel mingles with toffee and a low earthy bitterness. The beer is lightly sweet.

M: Medium body with upper moderate carbonation.

Overall: A nice brown ale. This is probably the best beer I've had so far from San Marcos Brewey. (527 characters)

22oz bomber from a friend who lives in San Diego.

Appearance (3.5): Ruby brown with red edges. A finger of cream head reduces to a mostly covering thin layer and a ring.

Aroma (2.5): Kind of a scotch style nose with some crystal and maybe Munich. Definitely a diverse malt bill with mostly toasty, caramel smells dominating.

Taste (3.5): More of the same from the nose. Pretty malty with caramel and some scotch flavors. A fruity plum or apricot - dark fruit - complements the big malt flavors.

Mouthfeel (3): Fairly slick and smooth. Medium body and medium to low carbonation.

Overall (3): Just OK but I'm not that familiar with this style. The maltiness is interesting but it's just not something I would crave. Drinkability is somewhat low, a sipper. (762 characters)
