I read a nice write-up over at PortlandBeer.org, and also read a post over at BeerNews.org and spotted these labels...
An Imperial Brown Ale brewed with palm sugar, molasses, and aged in Rum barrels. Can I get a hell yeah?
This will be the 6th installment in their Brothers Reserve series lineup and is slated for a release date of... Spring 2012.
All I know is that I want a case. I have just had a recent kick drinking Kona Brewings Koko Brown (Which is most likely brewed at the Widmer facility), and I feel Browns are not spoken of much, enjoyed enough, or bottled enough.
I will pipe in and say that I miss the 25th Anniversary Widmer brew... the Double Alt. I bought many of those, and had my last one about a year or so ago. It aged well. Now I still have 1 Brrrrrbon left (original BR series release).
For me this is even bigger news coming out of Widmer Brothers Brewing. I already know I will be buying a boatload of their next Rotator IPA Series, the Spiced IPA. Love that beer. This will certainly be filling my cellar, and fridge at its release.
