22oz bottle served in pint glass. Beer pours like a brown ale with a moderate head, slightly cloudy. Slightly phenol aroma. Flavor is uh, not good. Muddled malt flavors and a cloying candy sweetness. Low carbonation. This beer is like everything I don't like about an American Brown Ale and everything that can go wrong with a brown ale did go wrong.

I recommend against at any price. If I'm going to drink cheap beer I'd prefer *less* flavor -- less opportunity to foul up.

Appearance- Not impressed with the head retention or lacing. Color is a dark, deep brown.
Smell- Nutty and raisiny.
Taste- Very toffee-like and raisin character to it.
Mouthfeel- Straight up medium.
Overall- Alright, I am revisiting this one for a third time so it is absolutely drinkable. The reason I am giving it a 5/10 is as follows: It is in a class of it's own being a blend of three different classes of ale. I'm betting the other beers that make this one up are better off drank straight than being combined into this concoction of a brew. I can drink it, but that's not saying too much. Cheers to those who do.

Bomber poured into a large wine glass, this years anny beer shows deep brown, clear and with ruby highllights. Nice cap of foam and decent retention follow. Dubbed an 'Imperial Brown Ale' this year and coming in at the same 8.5% as the last two years.

Some ruddy hops and notable caramel notes on the nose along with dried fruits; plum, raisan and a touch of alcohol as well. Touch of woodiness at times.

Flavor is somewhat sweet yet not in a singular way, offering a fairly complex delivery of malt flavors. Finishes with a grainy and spicy sweetness, bit of cinnamon and cherry diffused into the mix. Fairly long finish is pleasant enough. Nice feel and carbonation, bit of higher alcohols present. Overall more of a standard strong ale than an Imperial Brown and surely not too Red in flavor. A quandary of sorts, yet a decent one.

2013 Vintage poured into a snifter

A- Pours murky amber red. Almost black in the glass. Litlle head to speak of in this beer.

S- A big dark fruit on the nose. A bit of grain and yeast. A slight nuttyness and herbal aroma.

T- A heavy dark fruit on this one. A fig and plum flavor and caramelized raisins. A deep burnt sugar note and dark caramel. A slight roastyness on the back end. A big grainy flavor and yeastyness. A nutty and garlic aftertaste.

M- This is a pretty thick beer. chewy and syrupy. Strong as well, quite warming. A sticky mouthfeel.

O- A solid strong ale, not too stand out but I have no complaints. And that price is unstoppable, $3,.50.

Got this at TJs for a very reasonable $2.99 per bomber

A: Pours brown with two finger head - some nice lacing (for whatever it's worth)

S: caramel, prune, toffee.

T: Malty, vanilla, caramel on the the sweet-side brew. It reminds me of Sam Adams double bock (imperial series). It's actually better than the SA because it's not overly sweet.

M: Medium mouth feel - about right for this kind of style

O: Nice price, a good brew if you are not into hoppy brews but are into trying something different. I'll try this again next year.
