Class 12 Strong and Old Ales

Abbatoir Imperial Black Rye Ale

This recipe started out as a clone of Firestone Walker's Wookey Jack Black Rye IPA, but was twisted into a deeper, richer, maltier, hoppier flavor monster at 9.75% ABV.

Top Forty Old Ale

Shop Brew, in preparation for the 40th Anniversary Party that's just less than a year away. This brew maxed out the new 55 gal mash tun and we still had to add extract to get the BIG Old Ale we wanted.

Lion's Share | Strong Ale

Original batch brewed with Falcon members Dave and Courtney Lopez a few weeks before my son was born in 2012. Recipe has remain unchanged across subsequent batches, winning Blue Ribbons in Strong Ale category at LA County Fair two years in a row (2012, 2013) and Silver Medal in Imperial Anything category at Doug King 2013. Highest score was a 40 from a BJCP certified judge (too generous I think). The biscuit malt plays really well with the Simcoe/Amarillo combination and the Denny's Favorite yeast leaves it full-bodied, chewy, yet not cloyingly sweet while balanced with the high IBUs from resiny hops.
