Dark brown pour - ruby red where the light passes through on the edges - with a thin, soapy head. Aroma of brown sugar, chocolate and even a little bourbon. Tastes like brown bread with raisins, very light coffee roast & bitterness. Warm, fairly boozy finish. Pretty good for a brown ale, but brown ales aren't really the greatest to begin with.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/22/2013. Pours slightly hazy ruby brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, caramel, toast, brown sugar, chocolate, coffee, light nuttiness, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and dark/roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toast, cocoa, light coffee, brown bread, light nuttiness, floral, grass, pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, brown sugar, cocoa, brown bread, light coffee, light nuttiness, floral, pine, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/roast malt flavor with moderate hop presence; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice imperial brown ale. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roast malt and moderate hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
