Imperial Brown Ale brewed with hazelnuts with natural flavors added and aged in bourbon maple barrels. Poured from a bottle into a small tulip. The pour is extremely dark brown and clear (a little light is allowed to get through) with red highlights. There is not much carbonation (it is barrel-aged after all) and even a rough pour fails to produce much head. The nose is rich and sweet with strong notes of vanilla, freshly-baked brownies, hazelnuts, and lots of toffee.

Full body with a creamy feel and lots of rich flavor. Very strong notes of caramel, creme brulee, vanilla, sweet malt, and toffee. Layers and lyers of sweet, rich, sticky goodness. Like liquid marshmallows. The base beer is so rich and flavorful that it dominates completely and drowns out the barrel character almost completely. This may sound like a gripe, but it's a good thing. Believe me. I hope I get to try this beer again sometime.
