Sweet-spiced penny-coppered medium body secures candied sugar caress and sinewy caramel malt splendor to butterscotch finish. Soft floral tea-like serenade stays somber.
Extremely thick molasses-coated amber ale with wonderful chocolate vigor. As black as Guinness in appearance, and almost as incredible. Though not water-based like most Canadian brews, Black Amber retains clean crispness despite such dark auspices. Blackened caramel malts, powdery cocoa bittering and ashen dried fruited backdrop compatible to light porter styling. Lengthier creamy finish would suffice, but no one is arguing.
Famous baseball legends sport labels-caps of these inconspicuous lagers. Sour malts fade to muted orange-peeled apricot midst before phenol nature gets best of dreary finish.
Billowy foam-headed white ale retains overall lemon-soured tartness and rangy ginger-coriander-mint seasoning. Tongue-tingling hop carbonation clouds any noticeable wheat-backed clove sweetness but pepper-corned orange peel misting moderates mild midst.
Unusual dried-out orange tartness and puckering grapefruit peel sourness make for a strange brew. Bland malt rigidity and mouth puckering sour-fruited divergence atypical for pale ale.
Aromatic green apple tartness and mouth-puckering citric souring provide eye-squinting bitterness, leading to heartburn-inducing vinous acidity. Intrusive carbolic fluff overwhelms miniscule butterscotch malt creaminess. Lacking necessary cereal-grained sweetness to counter dismal one-dimensional yellow-fruited sourness. Too similar to Big Hole’s lackluster Pale Ale.
At 7.5% alcohol range, this fine spiced-up raisin-kissed barleywine-styled elixir serenades syrupy Scotch malt sweetness with buttery port nuances to sticky medicinal finish.
Aromatic dark roasted coffee bittering enhances dry cocoa souring and roasted nuttiness promptly countering rich chocolate malt creaminess. Lactose-aided blood-thickened mocha intensity overwhelms acidic dried-fruited latency.
Innocuous clear golden light body maintains unspecific citric whiff to match fizzy lemony sugar zip. Dull bread-y bottom drops out.
Drab straw-hued dry-bodied Jamaican retains smarmy crystal-malted cereal-sugared grain-caramelized sweetness, but carbolic fizz overwhelms dank doughy must and buttery popcorn resonance.
Tempting dry-bodied mahogany-hued lactose stout leads with powdery cocoa spell deepening hop-roasted macadamia cluster. Dampening astringent black licorice finish confounds winningly sugared brown chocolate sweetness.
Dark brown porter plies ice coffee entry to crisp-watered chocolate malting, but lacks creamy mocha richness of better hop-roasted porters, upsetting established drinkers looking for more robust fare. Brewery defunct: circa 2006.
