In this special Beer Camp blog, we are going to sample the third of six beers in Sierra Nevada Brewery’s Beer Camp beer series. it is their Family Values Imperial Brown Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this California base craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know Sierra Nevada Brewery. Let us get into this brown ale.
It has a dark brown color with tan constant head. The aroma has a nutty notes. The taste has a sweet malty to nutty notes with an alcohol hint. The aftertaste has a malty dry finish. It is a sipping beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.beercamp.sierranevada.com):
FAMILY VALUESImperial Brown Ale with CocoaFamily Values showcases the cooperation and kinship of Midwestern brewers. It features largely Midwestern-grown ingredients: Minnesota wild rice, Indiana honey, Missouri oats, Michigan hops, and cocoa nibs from Illinois as well as Sierra Nevada’s estate-grown malt. This is our centrally located collaboration celebrating the best of the Midwest.

Ending, every sampler pack always has that beer that sticks out and is awesome. This is the beer in this pack. The Midwest team did a great job on this brew. This beer was worth every penny that I invested into it. There is some nice tasting notes and a awesome aroma that will bring the craft beer drinker to the beer. I love it and I want more. I would buy a four pack of this brew. I hope Sierra Nevada bring this beer back. This beer saved this sampler pack. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
