Since this popped up yesterday it has made it to my list of "next to brews" - I love the idea of an imperial brown...

Call me crazy, but what about a 0.25lb Aromatic added to the grain bill? Over the edge, or does it hit a sweet spot?

I'm having trouble trying to imagine what that would be like...I'm not an expert on aromatic but I see it as a way of giving big malt flavor/aroma without actually elevating the gravity much. I vote nay but you're welcome to experiment.

Thanks, I'll take your advice and make it your way. I can always experiment with a second batch.

It just occurred to me as I was listening to the Jamil Show today that instead of using the Aromatic, switching the base malt to Marris Otter, or 50/50, would beef up the malt in an unobtrusive way. (english pale malt extract for extract brewers)

I'm savoring the last pint of the first keg of this beer right now, and I can't believe I'm about to say goodbye to it. In case you can't tell, I'm almost emotionally attached to this beer. No time to be sad though, I've never been more excited to tap any keg than I have been about my bourbon barrel porter.

I had really poor efficiency brewing this one with my OG at 1.070. But, it went down to 1.016 so it's still above 7%. Tasted great at secondary transfer, will update after it's bottled. Thanks for the recipe.

This is a solid beer. Nice and malty, but some dark fruit comes through also. The head quickly disappears on mine, but leaves nice lacing down the glass. Color is a nice dark red - black.

Thanks again for the recipe, gonna bottle a bunch up and distribute to friends for their reactions.
