The Family Values Imperial Brown Ale with Cocoa, celebrates the best of the Midwest. A collaboration between August Schell Brewing, Dark Horse Brewing, Half Acre Beer, Perennial Artisan Ales, Sun King Brewing, and Sierra Nevada, this delicious Imperial Brown Ale is crafted with a combination of roasted malts, honey, oats and wild rice with a nice smooth ending of chocolate cocoa nibs. We just couldn’t get enough of the malty goodness!
Appearance: The Family Values pours a deep brown color that is completely opaque. Has a very small of white head that compresses.
Aroma: Very pleasant aromas of toasted malts with honey and chocolate. Very strong as you would expect from an imperial.
Taste: The honey makes this brew surprisingly sweet. A backbone of toasted malt complements the honey nicely with a smooth finish if chocolate. Very drinkable despite having a 8.5% ABV.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth for a Imperial Brown Ale. Carbonation level is mild to moderate which suite the flavors well. Smooth finish with chocolate aftertaste. An after dinner/dessert beer that isn’t too sweet.
Overall: This beer is delicious and a great take on a traditional brown. You can really taste the honey and chocolate. Flavors all mix very well and mask the high alcohol percentage well. If you’re a fan of the heavier brown ales this is definitely worth a try. Rich malty flavors and sweet honey and chocolate give everyone a little something to enjoy! Beer Camp strikes again with another awesome beer, Cheers!
