aka. I-5 Imperial Brown Ale
A 9.7% Imperial Brown ale that Matt from Oakshire came down and brewed with us. American hops come through but there is a lot of brown ale goodness. Sneaky beer.

Pour is a deep amber, sporadic lacing. Aromas of cherry, smoked peat, barley, roast, chocolste, cream. Decent scotch ale. Heat coming through. I think it was too boozey for its own good.

On tap@ Toronado SD: Poured a dense dark brown colorwith a thin layer of foam head. The aroma was subtle with only a touch of toasty malts. The flavor was toasty with a taste of assorted nuts and sweet base of malts that feels like this has a harsh finish and reminds me more of an Imperial red ale than a brown.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Pizza port I-5. On tap at haymarket... Pours a deeper mahogany reddish cola pour and topped with a creamy frothy tan head... Aroma of caramel and a Medium roast. On the sweeter side but ok...Big roasty character, almost coffee like, sweet overall with a decent body to go along side it. Like it but may come off as a bittoo sweet. 7/4/8/4/14

TheAlum (6991) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Draft on tap at Haymarket’s Pizza Port Event (Chicago, IL). Pours a Rich deep brown pour, touches of haze, very dark sun tea-esque with a fiery bottom with a big cakey tannish head that dies and laces well as a thick film. Nice. Aromas are deep dark cocoa, molasses, and earthy nuts, tobbacco. Touches of brown sugar, bitter floral hops. Initial is fuller bodied preaching big dark chocolate, molasses, some touches of dark fruit. Some toasty bread, tobacco, and more cocoa. Earthy and sweet with just the right amount of toast, mellow dark bitterness to keep it in check. Really nice beer here that reminds me of an Imperialized version of Matt’s Pullman at Flossmoor. Finish is sticky sweet caramel and molasses, dark cocoa roast and bitter dryness. Really nice beer here by the guys.
