Because drinking alone sucks

Occasionally after work a stronger beer is desired, Clocked Out is just what I have in mind. This imperial (9%+abv) Red will pour deep chestnut/mahogany with a foamy white head. The malty backbone will support a not too sweet caramel/toffee taste, with some bourbon cherry, and citric/pine bitterness on the finish. Aroma will be just a kiss of the hops combined with dark cherry, caramel/toffee, toast and pine.

Recipe Details

Scaled down so you can brew your own 5 gallon batch
Special ingredients
  • To bump the abv some belgian yeast will be required, as well as some dark belgian candy sugar. For the bourbon flavors I'm thinking more along the lines of bourbon soaked oak spirals in a secondary vs. barrel aging OR bourbon soaked maraschino cherries. BUT in either case not too much that it overcomes the malt bill flavors, must balance those and the alcohol so it's easy drinking.
