Danish: Vi forventede måske nok, at de ville ankomme med flasker fulde af Bourbon og en banjo under armen, men intet af dette skete. I stedet endte vores brygdag med de smukke fyre fra Against The Grain Brewery i Louisville, Kentucky som én stor hotdog-spisnings-konkurrence. Yep, vi tager ikke pis. Den store Kentucky-fyr, Sam, udfordrede vores egen temmeligt store fyr, Jacob, om hvem der kunne spise flest af Johns fyldige og voldsomt krydrede gourmet-hotdogs. Men det skulle Sam vist aldrig have gjort... Men midt mellem alle drillerierne og den meget snak om pølser, så blev der faktisk brygget øl. Vi håber at du vil nyde denne humlede Imperial Brown Ale - den var designet til i særlig grad at akkompagnere hotdogs og anden krydret og røget mad.

English: We expected banjos and Bourbon but received nothing of that sort. Instead our brew day with the handsome fellers of Against The Grain Brewery from Louisville, Kentucky turned into a hotdog eating contest. Yep, no kiddin’. Big Kentuckian feller, Sam, challenged our own big feller, Jacob, as to who could down the most gourmet hotdogs, big and spicy as they were with specialty toppings. Well, Sam should never have done that….should you Sam? However, a beer was indeed brewed in between all the trash talk and wieners. We hope you’ll enjoy this hoppy Imperial Brown Ale - it was designed to go with hotdogs in particular and other spicy and smoked foods.

Ingredients: Water. Malts: Pale, Brown, Melanoidin, Biscuit, Chocolate. Hops: Herkules, Tomahawk, East Kent Goldings, Cascade, Simcoe. Yeast: US-ale.

4oz on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Clear darker red orange color, thin ring of off-white head. Leaves decent ridges of lace. Big heavy roast coffee in the nose, and lots of cocoa nib. Heavy roast coffee dominates the flavor thereafter, which I don’t mind at all. Bitter, dark dark chocolate. Earthy hops. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Good chewiness to the texture, seems like a nice use of flaked malts here. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light to moderate sweet, more dry finish. Really enjoyable stuff. Love the big coffee and cocoa flavors.

Piękny aromat toffi, karmelu, z nutą orzechów ziemnych i amerykańskiego chmielu Brunatne, nieprzejrzyste z piękną czapą piany. W smaku na początku bardzo słodkie, czuć czekoladę, karmel, krówki, odrobinę orzeszki ziemne, co razem daje podobieństwo do snickersa, i skontrowane jest solidną, acz nie zalegającą goryczką. Do tego feria innych smaków, cytrusy, żywice, ciasto orzechowe. Wspaniałe piwo !

Deep chestnut color. Big off white head. Plenty of lacing. Big nutty malt aroma with hints of vanilla and caramel. Taste is the same with a bit of a carbonic bite.

Tmoney99 (11061) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted toasted sweet malt,smoke and hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations were surpassed.

Draft at Ei8ht Ball with Sam from ATG in the house. Pours a hazy copper brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have earthy hops, caramel, light smoke, wood, mild bitterness, some mild fruit character, a light nutty component, interesting enough
