COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first Bahl Horniní beer was designed to pay tribute to our flagship beer. The recipe is actually the same as regular Boont Amber, just more of every ingredient packed into the same volume- double the hops, double the malts, and double the intensity. What we ended up with is a bigger amber ale that is velvet-smooth, robust and complex: sweet hints of medjool dates, prunes, golden raisins, and toasted marshmallows are balanced to perfection with darker notes of licorice, leather, and tobacco. The flavor is full-bodied to say the least; the moderate and balanced bitterness of the clean, noble hop flavor gives way to malty sweetness without delay. From its burnt-toffee appearance to its lingering complexity of bitter sweetness, this brew is sure to impress the most sophisticated of palates.

Amber pour with an off-white head. Intensely sweet aroma of caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. A touch of chocolate, some vanilla, and a rather intense hop profile of grapefruit and pine. Lots of hop flavor, particularly pine, but still some citrus. Not quite enough to overcome the intense maltiness. Tons of caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, and toffee.

reebtogi (3833) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Pint on tap at Beer Revolutionís Edmonton location pours a deep amber color with a small white head which leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and caramel with some intense grain presence. Taste is a grapefruit and herbal hop bitterness with a fruity and grainy malt sweetness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Very smooth and easy to drink despite its higher ABV. Well done and recommended.

Pours a clear deep copper with an average white head and a touch of lace. Aroma is rich maltiness, dark fruits, dates, prunes, light licorice, and a marshmallow like sweetness(yes I got this from the description but Damn I canít get it out of my head seeing as its the perfect description here!). Flavour is rich maltiness, leather, mild-medium bitterness, dark fruits, rasins, grapes, dates, a medium sweetness, and some alcohol. Wow Iím impressed and damn they do a good description of this on the main page!

Reimer96 (1062) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours a ear dark amber color with minimal white head and no lace... Which is common for high abv beers. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, toffee, pine and some citrus hops. Taste is caramel, sweet malts, honey, pine, spruce and a well balanced bitterness on the finish. Great imperial amber that compliments the original recipe... Could drink this all night as is so well balanced.

Loved this. Sweet malty and bubblegum aromas and flavors. Very malt forward with enough bitterness to keep it balanced. This is fantastic.

northropfrye (1945) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
Light amber body nice lacing. Hoppy aroma. Initially a hoppy bitter taste followed by barley wine esque sweetness and booze. Really nice. My favourite from the Anderson Valley tap takeover at Barley Brothers, Winnipeg.

Draft at sb. Pours a clear but very dark amber with a loose tan head. Big sweet caramel and mild spicy notes on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty dark brown sugar caramelized mid palate, with estery floral spice showing. Long spicy caramel finish.

Apparently, they just doubled all the ingredients of the regular amber ale. A bit simple-mined if you ask me. This beer is decent, but itís just unbalanced.

I like this beer. Bright copper color, pours with a off-white head. Aroma and taste of caramel apples. Finishes with refreshing but not over powering bitterness
