COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Flame is a very interesting concept and there is not enough space to describe it here. You’ll have to visit our website for the complete story. But it will suffice to say that this is the "birth beer" of the concept. In this stage it is a blend of Autumnal Fire and a formula for something we whipped together and called "Imperial Fire." Combined they form the beginning of the Eternal Flame, a deeply amber hued Doppelbock that is 9.1 ABV of silky malt intensity.

This pours a dark brown color with a slight head. The aroma has a good amount of chocolate malt with a hint of hot spice.

Pretty good tho perhaps a hair under imperial. Great appearance; very good in all other regards but seems to be missing the heavy hitting of imperial style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty good beer. With an aggressive pour I got a small off white head that quickly settled down to a ring and no lace. Color is a very lovely, clear, red orange amber with a couple of tiny bubble trails. Aroma is great upon opening with an immediate whiff of sweet malt. Out of the glass are also caramel, toffee, fruit, and a very slight hint of butterscotch. Flavor is similar to nose with an excellent balancing effect from carbonic tang and bittering hops. Finish is like flavor with also a little banana, of good length, and some alcohol at the very end.

Lots of malt and bread on the nose with some cherry. Toast, caramel and cherry on the palate. Not much in the way of hops for this one.

Pours a clear amber with slight off white head. Aroma is malted with hints of roasted caramel, stone fruits, and dates. Taste is sweet with a spicy finish Overall, I really enjoyed this beer because of the spicy warmth for the winter, but not an amazing beer.

MrChopin (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2013
hazy red-amber, tepid with no head. Dusty, cheesy diacetyl nose, bit of cherry and toast. Flavor is heavy cherry, sticky with lowest carbonation, bitterness toast and light lactic off notes through the end.

On tap - a bit underwhelming since the name suggests something bold with this beer.

Huhzubendah (2525) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle shared by CaptainCougar. Thanks Tom. The beer is murky amber with a thin, off white head. The aroma offers fruits, sweet malt, alcohol. Plums and booze in the flavor. Medium bodied and a bit harsh in the finish. Needs some refinement and could be gentler on the palate.

radagast83 (4643) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle thanks to CaptainCougar. This one poured a slightly muddy orange color with a wispy, off-white head. The flavor is slightly sweet, with plenty of malts.

651mL thanks to CaptainCougar. Pours murky tea amber. Weak, white foam. Nose is sweet tea, big cherry juice box, sweet candies. Taste is sweet, harsher acid, very sweet kids cherry juice box. Papery, harsh finish.
