COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for the 47% We the brewers hold this truth to be self-evident: That all men {and women} are entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And, of course, quality craft beer. Brewed by Blue Point, of the nation’s top craft breweries, we’re proud to offer this government sanctioned White House homebrew recipe in honor of this election year. Munich, Pale, Crystal, Black, and Chocolate malts make for a rich and thick base, while Chinook and Crystal hops round out a perfectly balanced finish. At Blue Point, they believe the only percentage that should be singled out is ABV!

beerbill (3531) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark brown that allows light to pass through with a moderate tan head that lasted until nearly mid-glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of mild roast and malt and not much else. The flavor is malt with some very mild roast and a bit of molasses. Slightly metallic in the aftertaste. Mild bitterness at the finish. On the lighter side of medium bodied.

malrubius (1852) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle from Garden City Budverage Center. Very dark brown with ring and lace. Earthy leafy chocolate and coffee aroma. Mildly roasted chocolate coffee medium sweetness subdued dark fruit with earthy medium bitter dry finish. Rather full bodied for a session porter. Pretty good. And even though I voted for Jill Stein, who represents the 99% of us who don’t have our own SuperPac, thank god that douchebag (R)money didn’t win the election.
