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.

On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours reddish brown with a nice beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a dry earthy dark malt flavor with lots of carbonation and a bitter hoppy finish. A nice brew.

12 oz. can. Pours a clear caramel brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma has a pleasing combination of citrusy hops, moderately sweet fruits and some hints of caramel and molasses. The flavor opens with a shot of the dates and some citrus like hops. A moderate level of bitterness hits with some toasted bread notes. Finish maintains nice bitterness. I didn’t really know what to expect with this, but thought it was well worth the try.

douglas88 (8399) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 6, 2012
A very cool can thanks to Craig I think. Pours a clear dark ruddy amber color with a large white head. A sweet nose of biscuit and hops, very much like an American Pale. The flavor is similar; dominated by sweet and fruity American hops, light toffee, a bit of dryness. Leafy in fact. Very tasty.

blipp (8178) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Draft. Pours amber orange with a thin head. Lightly sweet aroma with some light toasty notes and spices. The flavor has toffee, toast, some great flowery notes, spices, and light fruity notes. Good stuff.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - JAN 25, 2012
1/25/12. 12oz can. Basically clear amber pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring and barely laces. Sweet aroma of brown sugar with a touch of alcohol and bitterness. Slightly sweet caramel entry with a definite minerally bitterness, a fair hint of roast, and lingering earthy hop bitterness. More time shows dark fruits and nuttiness lingering as well. Not bad.

Svesse (7850) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2012
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 31 March 2012) Dark reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with red fruit, caramel and orange peel. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, toast, red fruit and spicy hops in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain malt sweetness. Very much like an English strong ale brewed by American brewers, which in fact is exactly what it is. Well balanced and nice.

after4ever (7580) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Draft at special brews.pours a very dark but crystal clear brown with rubied edges. Dense creamy tan head. Sweet fruitcake and molasses nose, but very subdued. Not cloying at all...ya gotta get your nose wet to nail the profile. Creamy dense body with lively carb. Sweet black bread, dates, and some tangerine on the mid palate. Mild sweet finish. Could be a tiny bit bolder, but fully delectable as is.

nimbleprop (7487) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 16, 2012
12oz can pours a transparent, copper brown with a thin, lacing white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, multi grain bread, some brown sugar, crackers, biscuit, grapefruit, pine, a little lime. Flavor is balanced, sweet, brown sugar, multi grain crackers, grainy, some light bitterness, oranges, some bitter greens. Full bodied, sweet finish. Decent nose, needs more hop kick in the mouth. Almost like a hoppy brown.

jredmond (7460) - New York, New York, USA - APR 15, 2012
Can split with Dallas. Pours a deep amber, mahogany body with thin creamy , off white head. Aroma is pure toffee, with some fresh pine hops in the back. Mouthfeel is pleasant, balanced, and simple, with notes of toffee, sweet caramel malts, fresh pine hops, and some spice. A very good, straight forward ale.
