COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Were scheduled to release a new beer on 11/11/11 called the Chairman. The Chairman is in celebration of Lumpen Magazines 20th anniversary.

We opted to brew an Imperial Red Ale; a mostly balanced, ominous, reigning force easing you into cooperation. In honor of their creativity, three different labels were designed for this beer. Each one takes its own slant towards the spirit of Lumpen and its Boring Theoretical Party. The Chairman will be available at our brewery store and at Marias Packaged Goods in Bridgeport. To Lumpen!

Growler from the brewery. Imperial reds are a rarity and the Chairman does a good job representing the style. One thing i liked: its an imperial that doesnt blow out your tastebuds with hops, and it has a smooth, full bodied maltiness with all the flavors mentioned in the other reviews. It has a strong abv content but you wont notice it in the taste. Have it during a cold weather porch session.

64 oz growler from the Half Acre Tap Room. Deep, dark reddish pour that shines like a jewel in the light. An off white head sits on top that fades into a thin, sticky film that clings to the glass. Aroma of red fruits, cherries, citrus hops. A few notes of pine, red cake, cherries and mango. Flavor is mildly hoppy, red fruits, plums, cake malts. Some caramel. The hops are bright, grassy and piney, yet understated. Mild sweetness. No detectable alcohol. Pretty solid. I would have assume they would have hopped the hell out of this since its an "imperial red" but I respect their artistic decision not to.
