Notes: We took our award-winning English-style brown ale and added hazelnuts before aging it in George Dickel whiskey barrels for several months. This is malt-forward with significant roasted malt character. Aromas & flavors of caramel, toffee, & chocolate abound with a nutty finish.

Clear, dark brown body capped with a thick and creamy khaki hued head; nice presence of foam sheets coat the glass. An intriguing aroma of roasted grain, charred wood, and bright spiciness. The taste appears to be a shadow of what the smell suggests; light roasted grain presence with a bit of whiskey edge; tasty dark malt notes; hazelnut circulates throughout; minimal hop bitterness noted. Medium body; thin and rather watery; semi-sweet with a bit of dryness at the finish of each sip.

The brewery doesn't leave much detail about the beer. The bottle has no mention of what barrels were used during the aging process nor the bottling date. Also, for an imperial beer, the body seems rather thin. The flavor improves as the beer sits and warms. All in all, a good beer, weak in some areas but ultimately tasty.

Served at 56° F, no bottling date info available.
