Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Murky dark brown; light only passes through at the edges.

Nice off-white head which dissipates; strong lacing throughout.

Sweet malts in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel, bordering on heavy.

Light maltiness in the flavor, slight booze and hops detectable. Pleasant but frankly a bit boring. Not very exciting.

Looks like a hefty imperial brown ale. 1/3" head, off white. Aroma was boozy, toffee and caramel, brown malt notes. Hops understated.

Hops didn't come through in the aroma or taste really, what was there was for balancing purposes moreso it feels and tastes like.

Eh, its an imperial brown ale in a bomber format for me. Not gonna return.
