This 8.5% ABV imperial brown ale is a collaboration with August Schell, Dark Horse, Half Acre, Perennial, and Sun King breweries.
The beer pours dark brown and very dark ruby in color. There is a relatively short head of light tan foam. The aroma is sweet, yet roasted. The cocoa and honey are apparent, along with dark roasted notes and a touch of nuttiness. The taste follows the aromas, alternating sweet and cocoa with dry dark roast and nuttiness. The beer has a fine, yet intense carbonation, stinging the tongue. The beer drinks with a smooth medium body. The finish is overall just this side of dry with a light bitterness.
