An interesting favor (not in a good way). Not one I will seek out.

Poured on tap into a tall tumbler at the pug. Brewer describes this as an Imperial Brown Ale.

Not the best place to judge the color, but a deep dark brown, with red edges, served tall with no head, but manages to leave the thinnest of all colars while drinking. Decent.

Nose is nice dry toasted malts, faint milk chocolate, but a nice bit of carob or perhaps its light soy sauce. Meaty smelling, jerky. Interesting, but for and imperial it doesnt smell big. Nut and tannic action dry sense not very obvious.

Palate hits with a slightly wet classic standard brown ale flavor. Slightly toasty, a little density of nut and chocolate. Finish is strangely not boozy or big either, this is a good thing.

Overall good beer and even with the large abv its not noticeable and highly drinkable. But.. The richness and sense of bigness this beer advertises itself as does not come through. It tastes like a standard decent worthy brown ale, but special or particularly wow factor or amazing not really. Would drink again.

Not a huge brown ale fan, but this was available at an event I was at, and I sort of enjoyed it. Look was very impressive--nice head and good lace. Taste was subtle, relatively smooth, especially given its ABV. Nothing really stood out about it, but it was pretty good.
