COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In a surprising turn of events, rival superpowers have joined forces to bring a beer of might to the world. According to top-secret documents, recently unclassified, brewmasters for 21st Amendment in California and Ninkasi in Oregon began their brewing careers together many years ago. ALLIES WIN THE WAR! is 21st Amendment Brewery’s first ever collaboration beer, a traditional English-style Strong ale aged on native California dates and dry hopped with all-Northwest aroma hops. Available now in limited edition four-pack cans and draft.

Old ale with dates.

GT2 (9241) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
12oz retro can at Rock N Roll Hotel on H St NE. Pours a clear crystal malt heavy reddish amber topped by a weak beige head. Sugary strawberry aroma. Taste is spicy vegetal and earthy onion atop sticky/sugary strawberry, bitter chocolate, older hop character. Specialty malt overload with odd vegetal character. Feels overall like a sticky sweet DIPA.

Dogbrick (9156) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2012
This beer pours a reddish-brown color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toffee, dark fruit and hops. Medium body with flavors of dark malt, figs/dates, hops and a bit of yeast. The finish is fruity with a resinous hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

mcberko (8670) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2011
12 oz. can, pours a dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of hops upfront, some bready malts, hints of caramel and dark fruits, and a bit of grapefruit. Flavour is a mellow blend of sweet caramel malts, citrus hops and grapefruit, with some subtle spicy notes thrown in there - the flavour dies on the palate very quickly leaving little aftertaste. Nice subtle flavours, but for 8.5%, this lacks a deep flavour profile. Mildly enjoyable.

arminjewell (8462) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz can is dark reddish with thin but lasting slightly off white head, aroma has notes of dark fruit, caramel, burnt sugars, toffee, hints of grape, touch of alcohol but not bad. Taste is a slight alcohol burn, hints of dark fruit with the dates slightly, hints of burnt caramel, slight earth and toffee notes, touch of slight grassy notes, finishing fairly bitter but dry also.
