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.
2017: 13.2% abv

I like this description - lean, simple BW, but with a big barrel component enveloping the simple interior. A tad thin, but lots of brown fudge, bourbon and caramel notes.
