COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Brown Ale.
The first beer brewed for the barrel aging program and has been brewed every year since. Originally named after an experimental variety of hops but now brewed with US grown Fuggles which are earthy and resinous. A lean, simple barley wine brewed to showcase barrel flavors with massive bourbon barrel notes that morph as the beer warms in the glass.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a slight hazy ruby brown with off white head. Huge robust aroma. Lots of molasses, caramel, toffee, nutty, dates, raisins, bourbon, cocoa. Taste is moderate to heavily sweet. Flavors similar to aroma with some more bourbon and earthy notes. Hides ABV incredibly well. Just an excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garrold (5507) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2017
Bottle. Arcade Beers, Huddersfield. Missus got me this one. Clear, deep amber colour. Managed to pour in a few floaters. Slim ring of beige head. Nose has big bourbon notes, although I'd easily mistake these for old sherry, or even port barrel aromas. Raisins. Vanilla pod. Old Jamaica chocolate bars spring to mind. A bit woody and leathery. A bit herbal and medicinal. Taste is sweet and boozy. Lots of vine fruit stickiness. Some estery dryness. Mouthfeel is relatively light, with low, prickly carbonation. The ABV is apparent in so much as it numbs the teeth, somewhat. Loses the stickiness as it goes, and takes on a dark sherry like vibe. Nice. My gums feel like they have melted and my sinuses have never felt clearer, so that must be a good thing?
