The first original big beer brewed at Block 15, Aboriginale has quickly become a house favorite. Brewed with an artistic blend of seven malts and three hops. Deep chestnut in color with an interesting complex malt body. A dry hop dose of Fuggles provides a fresh earthy nose.

Draft at the brewery. A: Amber bordering on brown, off-white head, light lacing. N: Big toasty body with a touch of toffee. Lots of peppery and piney hops here, interplaying with cereal and nuttiness. Touch of minerality. T: Medium bitterness and sweetness, well proportioned. M: Medium body, spritzy carbonation, no alcohol. O: A real easy drinker. Has a solid complexity and a great malt backbone. Not really sure why the scores are so low, but I enjoyed it immensely.

after4ever (7620) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Draft at the production facility out on the south side of town. Pours a cloudy dark brownish amber with a loose and sudsy off-white head. Big toasty nose, tasty cheerios and husky grain notes along with toasty herbal hops. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty, nutty mid palate with light malt sweetness, playing against a piney, resiny hop charge. Dryish toasty finish. Solid beer, but definitely seems more suited to autumn than to warm muggy spring days in the river valley.

Reid (2339) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Pint glass poured from a growler from "B2 Taphouse" in Salem OR Pours a darker amber coloured body with a large creamy thick light tan head. Nice treacle toffee type malt aromas and a slight earthy hop. Nice. Smooth balanced taste..but far from boring..lots going on and it finished pleasantly bitter dark chocolate. LIke the mouth feel on this its thick yet rolls across the tongue with ease. Overall a nice Amber albeit on the strong side. NOTE..according to the board this is 6.7% .

Keg at the taproom, Corvalis, 10/11/14. Clear amber with a decent beige covering. Nose is earthy hop, mineral rinse, pine, bitter orange, caramel. Taste comprises red grapefruit, light spice, caramel malt, earthy minerals. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid stuff but this is a cross between a hoppy red or an American Strong. Come to England and find me an English Strong that packs this much hop presence, if you find one I’ll buy you a pickled egg!!!

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2014
sepia with puffy cream head. diacetyl dominate nose, light pumpernickel dusty wheat. Flavor softer, doughy crust up front with light grass and roast mid, darker dense grains, some, tea and toast finish with light residual sugar balancing. Full and coating, lightly chalky, a solid effort once the diacetyl nose blows off.
