COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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% .

Theydon_Bois (11073) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2014
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 (3474) - 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.

On tap. Colour...dark orange-amber with a moderately thick head . Nose...quite fruity with a lean towards the citrus side. Palate...deeply malty but then there’s the citrus again. This is a rather interesting ale but not what I would call an "old ale". There’s plenty of malt burn then again there’s the citrus. Hmmmm....hard to peg this one, but a decent ale nonetheless.
