On-tap at Concordia Ale House, Portland, OR. $3.75/pint.

Unsure of what an "Imperial Brown" might taste like, I started with a small taster, which my wife sipped on, too. We both really liked the sample alot, so I decided to get a full pint.

A: Excellent rich brown with a 1/2 finger creamy tan head.

S: Little smell - subtle caramel malt and dark chocolate.

T: Rich full flavor of chocolate, malty caramel and well-placed bitter hops. Very nice character to this beer, a brown ale with a bigger body and stronger attributes.

M: Creamy and smooth. Carbonation level seems low - nice lingering sweetness - not sticky.

D: With great flavor and balance this is a very appealing brown ale. I'd definitely have this again.

Imperial Brown Ale? Interesting combination of styles, which works really well.

It seems to use Brown Ale ingredients, at Imperial Stout concentrations. Awesome!

Moderate to heavy body, with tons of flavour, without that bitter roasted taste. The malty sweetness is perfectly balanced with the hoppy bitterness in this brew.

Highly recommended for any beer-geek!
