    Interesting choice to make a "imperial" version of, the first one I have come across... for the british market maybe? Anyways, browny type things, well balanced with a bit of bitterness but no hop flavours. Lots of malt in the form of powdered chocolate and cold instant coffee-ish. Roasted chesnuts make an appearance time and again in the aroma. Its really good for being a imperial brown ale, otherwise its just a reasonable beer. Points for trying something different though.

    Good brown body with reddish hints, a tall rocky cap floats on top. Brown ale.....is this anyone's favorite style? Is it even in any ones top ten favorite styles? Aroma has cold coffee and soap, possible smoky chocolate but that seems like a stretch. Flavour is all cold coffee with a big bitter aftertaste. Some sweetness with a touch of vanilla. For a brown ale I guess its good but its a brown ale so ya.

    pours a dark muddy brown. semi-thick head. feel is medium bodied. full flavor and aroma of bready malts and a generous portion of hops. flavor balanced between sweet malt and bitter hops. pretty good, but far from their best.

    Sampled on 6/18/2010. This English Strong Ale pours a dark brown color from a .5l bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with decent lacing. The aroma is fruity, nutty and sweet, with a touch of alcohol. Medium to full bodied English Strong Ale. The malts are fruity, nutty and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. A touch of tea. Nice sipping beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    Bottled. Murky reddish brown colour with beigeish brown head. Leaves nice lace. Aroma is a lot of caramel, raisins, some licorice and spices. Flavour is very much the same with wood and freshly cut grass added. The alcohol gives a slight sweet touch to it.

    Bottle: Poured a deep brown color ale with a huge medium brown color head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with some buts and light hops is very interesting. Taste is maltier then expected with huge caramel malt with some nuts. The finish is slightly bitter but less then expected for an Imperial brown ale; it appear that the imperial is related to the malt as opposed to the hops which is quite interesting. Body is above average with some medium carbonation. Overall, I would say that this was a well done beer in what is often a boring style.

    Dark brown with a huge sticky yellowish light brown head. Rather neutral and malty aroma of nuts and toffee. malty sweet flavour with touches of toasted malt, nuts and sweet licorice. Medium bitter aftertaste of nuts and grass with sweet vinous undertones.

    500 ml bottle conditioned, courtesy of Cardinal, Stavanger (Norway’s best beer bar, untill someone proves me wrong). Sampled side-by-side with its "sister brew", Nørrebro Bryghus Double Knot Brown Ale (pasteurised and unfiltered keg, see separate rating). ABV is 7.5%, 19 degrees Plato, 40 IBU. Very dark brown colour, moderate head. Darker than Nørrebro DKBA. Lovely malty aroma with plenty of aromatic hops, notes of chocolate and leather too. Rich and roasty flavour, plenty of malts and oak. Roasty long aftertaste. Excellent beer!
