Rogue Double Brown Throwdown Review

Name: Rogue Double Brown Throwdown
Style: Imperial Brown Ale
ABV: 9.4%
IBUs: 36

It's been a bit since I've had a beer from Rogue, so let's check out their Double Brown Throwdown, which is an Imperial Brown Ale. There really isn't too much else to say about this beer, so let's take a look at this, shall we?

Appearance - Dark brown color that borderlines on being black. The head is initally quite thin and fades to a brown rim along the sides of the glass but the lacing is plentiful.

Aroma - Strong chocolate malts and roasted barley with some light floral hops. I'm also picking up on some toffee sweetness and some mild booziness.

Taste - Chocolate malts and toffee sweetness on the front of the palate. In the back I'm getting some mild boozy heat, more toffee sweetness and some roasted barley. As for the aftertaste, it's actually quite dry save for some light roastiness and chocolate malts.

It could've done with a little less booziness but the rest of the flavor is quite good and this an otherwise solid brown ale. If you're looking for a good brown ale to warm you up during the upcoming months, this will do just fine.

Rogue Double Brown Throwdown - 8/10
